Millwall avoid fixture pile-up as Charlton confirmed

THE draw for the second round of the FA Cup will take place on Monday, November 7, before the first-round clash between Southport and Fleetwood Town.

Millwall secured their place in the draw through Mahlon Romeo's late winner against Southend at The Den on Friday night.

Romeo's 88th-minute strike meant Millwall avoided a fixture headache and confirmed their postponed league clash with Charlton will now take place on Wednesday, December 21, with a kick-off time of 7.45pm.

Before all that they will try to negotiate their way through to the third round of the FA Cup, and set up the potential of a lucrative draw with Premier League and Championship sides entering the competition at that stage.

The second-round draw will start at approximately 7.10pm and Millwall are ball number two.
