Preview: Wigan vs. Millwall

NEIL Harris could stick with a winning formula as Millwall aim to complete a successful September when they take on Wigan on Tuesday night.

The Lions have won four of their last five games and take that good form to another of last season’s relegated sides.

Millwall put their unbeaten away record this season on the line against a side that have yet to lose at home and have conceded just one goal in four league games at the DW Stadium.

Centre-back Sid Nelson may not be ready as he continues his recovery from the rib injury that has kept him out for the last three games.

Winger Paris Cowan-Hall is out, but defender Shaun Cummings could be in contention after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Wigan failed to win any of their first three games of the season but their consistent home form has left them just two points off the play-off places.

The Lions didn’t concede a goal against the Latics in the league last season, winning 2-0 at home and drawing 0-0 away, and Wigan manager Gary Caldwell expects this to be his side’s biggest test at home so far this season.

Caldwell told the club’s official website: “Millwall have been excellent away from home this season.  I saw them at Port Vale and they were very good that night, they should have won by a lot more goals than they did.

“We’re going to have to be at our best, if not better than any of our home games so far.

“They’re a team we know well from the Championship and they’re in a similar position to us in terms of making a lot of changes and aiming to go straight back up.”

“We’ve got an unbeaten home record to defend and we’re very proud of what we’ve started at the DW.”

Sky Bet match odds:

Wigan 6/5  Draw 23/10  Millwall 23/10

Probable Millwall team:

Archer; Edwards, Webster, Beevers, Craig; Onyedinma, Abdou, Williams, Ferguson; Morison, O’Brien.

    Can't see Fred starting. Good man to come on 2nd half.

      @NICKOLA: Agree mate, reckon he will start with Upson and keep it tight for the first half, capable of getting a result but I would be happy with a point. Was quite impressed with Ferguson on Saturday, gave us a much better balance and put some good crosses in.

        @Jimbobwallmk: have been saying for the three games that Fred should start from the bench might give him the kick up the a*** he needs.

    This should be a good game. Hopefully only one change that's obvious upson for Fred. For me same again if players are all fit and ready. we have a spine of a good team. No injuries no cards and 3 points would be great. I'm quietly confident. It's slowly coming back for Harris and team keep it up you lions.

    I think we will need to pack the midfield against Wigan, not sure the same set-up will work there. Expect 433 with Upson playing

    If anyone should be rested soon it's Carlos for me. No coincidence that we have started winning since he came back.
    I dont think you can come straight back from an injury like his and play twice a week straight away.
    The problem is though as we all know we are a much better team with him in it and Cummings is not as good.
    Might then just have to rest him and risk losing the odd game rather than than risk losing Carlos for a long period.

    Of course I'd like to see us win tonight but its going to be incredibly tough and arguably the toughest test we'll face this season away from home. Take a point, then go to Peterborough on Saturday and win. That would be a great scenario going into the international break!
