Millwall host high flying Norwich City on Tuesday in what promises to be an enthralling encounter at The Den.

Daniel Farke's Canaries will hope to return to winning ways after their stalemate with Middlesborough at the weekend, and will have another tough match on the horizion when they make the trip to face Gary Rowett's Millwall 

The Lions will also be hoping to return to winning ways tomorrow evening, after consecutive league draws against Watford and Cardiff City respectively.

Norwich currently sit top of the Championship table, and a win for the Canaries tomorrow would bolster their chances of promotion. While a win for Millwalll could see them climb as high as 13th in the Championship league table.

Team news

Mahlon Romeo will be pushing for a start in defence after losing his place to youngster Danny McNamara in recent weeks.

Connor Mahoney and Billy Mitchell both made their returns from injury for the u23s on Monday, Mahoney only lasted 40 minutes before being taken off as a precaution, Mitchell lasted the first 45 so will have a slight chance of being in the squad for Tuesday.

Norwich are without any fresh injury concerns from the weekend, and are expected to have the same players to select from, with the exception of Emi Buendia, who is suspended after his sending off at the weekend.

The Canaries are still without duo Jordan Hugill and Marco Stiepermann, but Kenny McLean is expected to start for Norwich after being sidelined recently with an injury.

Predicted lineups

Millwall (3-4-3):

Bialkowski; Cooper, Hutchinson, Leonard, McNamara, Malone, Woods, Kieftenbeld, Wallace, Zohore, Bennett.

Norwich City (4-2-3-1):

Krul; Aarons, Gibson, Hanley, Giannoulis, McLean, Skipp, Cantwell, Vrancic, Placheta, Pukki.

Ones to watch

Jed Wallace - Millwall

Tomorrow night, Jed Wallace will be one to watch in the game. The Lions have relied on the qualities of Wallace over the last couple of seasons, and his creative spark could cause difficulties for Norwich tomorrow night.

Oliver Skipp - Norwich City

Meanwhile for Norwich, Tottenham Hotspur loanee Oliver Skipp has been mightily impressive for the Canaries this season, proving to be a figure of consistency for them throughout. If the young midfielder puts in a good performance in midfield tomorrow, it may be enough to swing the game in the favour of Daniel Farke's side, and guide them towards three crucial points in their push for promotion.

Previous meetings

The last encounter between these two sides came back in early November when the two sides shared the spoils in an uninspiring encounter at Carrow Road.

Norwich have the upper hand out of these two teams, edging the recent head to head encounters with three wins in their last five outings against Millwall.

How to watch

Tomorrow nights match between the two sides will be shown exclusively live on the two teams iFollow platforms, with passes costing £10.

The match will kick off at 18:00.
