“Two teams that are in there at the moment and deservedly so. We’ve got to make it a really good game and these are the games we want to be involved in.

"Our fans are going to have the place rocking so it’s one we’re really looking forward to. We’ve got to recover well now, assess everyone tomorrow and see how everyone is. Millwall will be the same, they’ve obviously had a really tough fixture away at Stoke, so it’s one we’re really looking forward to.”

Millwall, alike the Hatters, are vying for a place in the play-offs this season and are well in contention for the top six come the end of the season. 

Manager Gary Rowett has been in charge at The Den since 2019, which to date makes him the second-longest serving manager in the division. After a playing career spanning more than 350 matches with the likes of Everton, Derby County and Birmingham City, Rowett is now looking for his first promotion as a manager.

Striker Tom Bradshaw is their joint-top goalscorer this season along with Zian Flemming and has now made over 100 appearances for Millwall since signing for the club in 2019. He scored his fourth goal in two games against Burnley a week ago following a hat-trick against Sheffield United, taking his tally to 11 for the season. 

 

Last time we met:

The two sides contested an entertaining 2-2 draw at Kenilworth Road in April last year. Tom Bradshaw put the away side ahead before Elijah Adebayo replied with a cool finish after combining well with Amari'i Bell. 

Benik Afobe looking to have sealed victory for the Lions with nine minutes remaining but Robert Snodgrass' late free-kick was turned into his own net by Jake Cooper in the 88th minute.
