However, Stefan Johansen equalised to make it 2-2 just 15 minutes after Charlie Austin got one back for the R's.  

In the 86th minute, centre-back, Jordy de Wijs scored the winner with a looping header from the front post over Bialkowski to hand the Lions a rough defeat. 

On Tuesday, Middlesbrough won their third game in five when they hosted Preston North End at the Riverside Stadium.

Ones to watch

Millwall - Jed Wallace

The attacker has scored eight goals so far this season for the Lions along with four assists, and will look to enter double figures for his goal tally again in the Championship.

Typically starting on the left in the front three, Wallace is a key asset to Millwall's attack. He's a threatening player going forward and always one the opposition should be wary of.

Middlesbrough - Neeskens Kebano

Signing in January, the 28-year-old winger is very skilful and brings a different dynamic style Boro' have been lacking previously. 

Kebano has the ability to change the game and has a good chance to be involved in any goal scored by Saturday's visitors.
