The New Den
3rd March 2012
Millwall entertain the form side of the division in Reading, who have their last five goals not conceding a single goal. The Lions however are hovering dangerously above the relegation zone but a superb 3-1 win at Burnley is likely to boost low confidence for Kenny Jackett's side.
Millwall boss Kenny Jackett - 'Reading are the form side in the division, doing very well, but for me the opposition are secondary - it's our home game and we need to turn that form around. We want to build on last Saturday's very good victory.'
Reading manager Brian McDermott - 'There has been progression, we've brought players in which have helped the squad, we've gone on a run of performances where we've got results - there's definitely been progression. I've watched their [Millwall's] game against Burnley and they were good value for the win.'
Key midfielder Liam Trotter is set to miss out with a thigh problem. Defender Jack Smith has returned to training this week and is likely to feature for the Lions. Tricky winger Hamer Bouazza is set to retain a place in the line-up, despite publicly criticising the club.
The former Royals player is keen to prove a point to his former side that let him go after no real chances in the first team. Good dead-ball specialist and is likely to cause Ian Harte some problems on the left side.
Right-back Shaun Cummings is now available after recovering from illness, but Brian McDermott could stick with Matt Connolly. All participating internationals in the week will be assessed but should be passed fine.
The QPR-loanee has made a big impression with the Royals so far, with his good reading of the game and tough tackling proving with the record of not conceding a goal when he is in the team. Is bound to face his biggest test in Hamer Bouazza tomorrow.
Reading 2 - 2 Millwall
Henderson (69) Marquis (62) Manset (86, 89)
It will be a tough game at the Den with an intimidating atmosphere but considering our current form and Millwall's home form, I can see us sneaking a 1-0 win.
