Hull City look to make it four wins on the spin when they host Millwall at the MKM Stadium.

The Tigers have not conceded a goal in victories over Barnsley, Birmingham City and Cardiff City, climbing out of the relegation zone and up to 19th in the EFL Championship table.

Millwall are in contention for a play-off spot in 10th place, but have won just one of their last five matches, playing out three consecutive draws in that span.

Team news

Hull received a scare when defender Callum Elder came off against Cardiff with a concussion, but he should be back in the side on Saturday.

Tom Huddlestone also returned against Cardiff while Di'Shon Bernard is back from a one-match suspension.

Millwall will welcome Jake Cooper back after serving his suspension for yellow card accumulation. 

Ryan Leonard looks to be absent through injury while Benik Afobe impressed against AFC Bournemouth and could start up front in a three-man attack.

Predicted lineups

Hull City: Baxter; Elder, Greaves, McLoughlin; Lewis-Potter, Docherty, Smallwood, Longman; Honeyman; Wilks, Magennis

Millwall: Bialkowski; Wallace, Hutchinson, Ballard; Malone, Saville, Mitchell, McNamara; Afobe, Bradshaw, Wallace

Ones to watch

George Honeyman (Hull City)

He was his usual tireless self in midweek. Industrious in the midfield, his cross was flicked on by Keane Lewis-Potter for the Tigers opener and he was the key man in stopping Cardiff’s star man Kieffer Moore.

Benik Afobe (Millwall)

The Congolese has impressed in recent matches, especially in the Lions’ last match against Bournemouth, where he scored the equaliser. He also scored in the win against Reading. 

Previous meetings

Millwall have lost just once in their last seven meetings against Hull.

The last matchup between the two sides was in the 2019/20 season when a goal by Leonard in the second minute gave the Lions all three points in a 1-0 victory. 

How to watch

There will be no television or streaming coverage of the match in the UK and Ireland. Those abroad can watch a live stream of the match through the official streaming services provided through both club websites.

Kick-off is set for 15:00 GMT.
