MILLWALL MATCH PREVIEW

11 November 2016

Bristol Rovers turn their attention back to SkyBet League One this Saturday, with a trip to South-London to take on Millwall F.C.

The hosts currently occupy thirteenth place in SkyBet League One and head into Saturday's game on the back of four straight wins.

Team News: Rovers have a fully fit squad to choose from heading into the game, with the exception of Jake Clarke-Salter, who is on England-U20 duty in South Korea.

Steve Yates' View: "There is never a right or wrong time to play another team."

"As long as we go about our business in the correct way, we know that the way we play can cause other sides problems. If we are able to do that then was can give Millwall a good game."

"Neil Harris is a bit of legend at Millwall and it is very much his club. He probably feels exactly the same about Millwall as I do about Bristol Rovers.”

"Neil is doing a great job there. They were play-off finalists last season and they are obviously on a very good run of form and it would be great to go there and come away with something."

"If we can get into their faces and stop them from playing and work hard during the game then hopefully we can come back with something."

Opposition: Millwall have enjoyed a good run of form of late and will entertain Rovers following back-to-back victories in SkyBet League One against Oxford United and Fleetwood Town. 
                   
Dangerman - Steve Morrison: The experienced striker has scored on nine occasions so far this season, with seven goals coming in SkyBet League One.

Building his career during a spell at Stevenage, the forward first moved to the Den in July 2009, where he made over eighty appearances before leaving to join Norwich in June 2011.

Morrison's spell at Carrow Road lasted eighteen months before the striker made a switch to Leeds United. 

After struggling for goals at Elland Road, the forward returned to the Den on loan for the 2013/2014 season and made his stay permanent in the summer of 2015.

At international level, the striker has twenty caps for Wales, with one international goal to his name, which came in a qualifying match for the Euro 2012 against Montenegro.

So far this season Morrison has continued his good goals to game ratio, with the striker finding the net six times during August alone.

Last Time Out: Rovers' last visit to Millwall ended in a 2-0 defeat, with goals on the day coming courtesy of Steve Morrison and an own goal by Rovers' centre-back Pat Baldwin.

Tickets: Supporters can Pay on the Day at the Den.
