Millwall host Rotherham United at The Den on good Friday in the Sky Bet Championship.

The visitors come into this game on the back of an excellent 2-0 away win against Bristol City at Ashton Gate and a win at The Den could move them out of the relegation zone.

The hosts come into this game on the back of a 1-0 home win against Middlesbrough and a win on Friday could close the gap on the play-offs to seven points.

  • Ones to watch

Mason Bennett

Since making a permanent move from Derby County in the summer after a successful loan spell last year, Mason Bennett has been in fine form for the Lions. The attacker has scored three goals in his last six games and his partnership with Jed Wallace has proven to be a nightmare for opposition defences. 

Freddie Ladapo

Rotherham striker Freddie Ladapo has been an important player for the Millers this year, he has scored seven goals and contributed with an assist. His strength and turn of pace will mean the Millwall defence will have to be on top form to stop him on Friday afternoon.

  • Previous meetings

The last time the two sides met, Millwall walked away with all three points as they won 1-0 at the New York Stadium. However, in the last five meetings it is the Millers who edge it, winning three, with one draw and the Lions winning the other one.
