Millwall choked in their final home game of the regular season, conceding twice in the opening nine minutes on the way to a 3-0 defeat against Oxford. But don’t hold that against them. It’s out of their system now and the usual strong mentality was back on full display as they clinched the final play-off berth with a late winner at Bristol Rovers (4-3) last weekend.
It’s been a tough season for the Lions, following a poor start on the back of last season’s Wembley heartache. But their big-match pedigree should make them a force now the prolonged game of catch-up is finally over. The end-of-season knockout is a level playing field and the notoriously hostile crowd at the New Den is a wonderful advantage to have ahead of this tie.
Make no mistake, this is the game nobody wanted. Uwe Rosler (Fleetwood) and Stuart McCall (Bradford) both voiced their relief about avoiding the trek to the capital for a Thursday night match followed by a three-day turnaround. Scunthorpe were comprehensively beaten (1-3) on this ground a month ago and you suspect a scrappy game of few chances would suit them just fine.
Prior to the Oxford debacle, Neil Harris’ men had gone 15 unbeaten at home, winning 12 and keeping ten clean sheets. It’s a sample that included those three Premier League scalps in the FA Cup and the Millwall 1-0 correct score looks like a lively runner at 7/1, following the blueprint that brought wins over Watford and Leicester.
