The Big Match Preview - Millwall

4 December 2015

All you need to know about the trip to The Den (k.o. 3pm).

Millwall vs Wycombe Wanderers
Emirates FA Cup Second Round
Saturday 5th December 2015, k.o. 3pm
The Den
Referee: Fred Graham

Gareth Ainsworth says his side are up for the challenge of bouncing back from Tuesday's defeat at Bristol Rovers and taking a notable scalp in the second round of the FA Cup.

It was Wanderers' heaviest defeat for almost two years but there's no time to dwell on the disappointment as they head across London for a meeting with League 1 side Millwall which could potentially lead to a prestigious draw in the third round.

“I know what we can do and I know what the potential of the squad is," he said. "So even after the defeat at Bristol Rovers, they’ll be bubbly and getting everything in place for an upset at The Den.

“Millwall are in decent form and a league higher than us so we’ll go there and give our all, as we always do, and I would love to be in the hat for the next round.”

The Chairboys welcome back Aaron Pierre after suspension meaning Joe Jacobson and Marcus Bean are the only confirmed absentees as they continue their recovery from the respective back and ankle injuries which have ruled them out until the New Year.

Meanwhile, Millwall have won seven of their last eight home games although they've suffered defeats in two of their last three league outings, and may also have one eye on Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy meeting with Southend.

Neil Harris' men are missing the injured Tony Craig and Nadjim Abdou while centre-back Mark Beevers is suspended. However, Fred Onyedinma is likely to feature against the side for whom he scored eight goals on loan last year, while goalkeeper Jordan Archer was handed his senior debut by Gareth Ainsworth during a loan spell from Tottenham in 2012.

The victors will be ball number 58 in the draw for the third round, which takes place on Monday evening live on BBC2 from 7pm.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 20,146 (all seated). Away fans are located at one end of the ground in the North Stand (usually in the upper tier only) - the view is excellent.

Facilities around the ground
There are not many pubs located near to the stadium and advice is that those should be avoided by away supporters.  If travelling by train then it is probably best to have a drink around London Bridge but I recommend keeping any colours covered. At the ground there are bars at the back of the stands.

Can't make it?
Marcus Bean and Phil Catchpole are behind the mic to provide live commentary on Chairboys Player and the FLi Player app from 2.55pm. Alternatively you can follow regular updates on our Twitter account - @wwfcofficial.
