MILLWALL PREVIEW

7 April 2022

The Reds head to the capital this weekend to take on play-off chasers Millwall in our next Sky Bet Championship assignment.

It wasn't the return from the final international break that we all craved, last time out against Reading here at Oakwell. The Reds, going ahead on five minutes through Carlton Morris were pegged back in the final 10 minutes of last Saturday's fixture, confirming a 1-1 draw and that the five-point gap between the two sides remained. 

Then, in midweek, the Royals scraped a 2-1 home victory over Stoke City to move eight points clear of Barnsley and the relegation zone, meaning the mountain we must now climb is of Everest proportions, should we remain a second tier outfit at the end of this challenging campaign.

Saturday's performance looked nothing like recent Oakwell encounters, where a vibrant attacking display earned victories over the likes of QPR, Middlesbrough and Bristol City. Instead, after taking that early lead when Morris finished in real style from the right edge of the penalty area, the Reds dropped deeper and deeper as time elapsed. 

The Reading equaliser was almost inevitable and it was only the amount of time it took to arrive that came as a shock. A poorly defended low cross was eventually stabbed home by Josh Laurent and once more, Barnsley had given up a precious lead late on.

So, as we head into this weekend's clash with the Lions, the Reds are eight points adrift of safety - with a game in-hand - and will probably need to win at least four of their remaining seven fixtures to even stand a chance of pulling off another great escape. 

A trip, then, to The Den is hardly the ideal game to be going into. A notoriously difficult venue to visit, and up against a side who have their own fight on their hands, to reach the end-of-season play-offs.

The Lions, still led by former Derby County and Birmingham City full-back Gary Rowett sit just four points outside the top six going into this one, but have gone off the boil in recent matches, losing two of their last three, including a 1-0 home defeat on Tuesday night against Swansea City.

ASBAGHI PRE-MILLWALL

8 April 2022

That extends their run to just one win from their last six, with their promotion push stalling somewhat.

However, they'd won six of eight prior to that with home wins over the likes of Huddersfield Town, QPR and Sheffield United galvanizing a real belief that the play-offs are a possibility for this hardworking group.

The Lions have a familiar face leading the frontline, in former Reds striker Tom Bradshaw. The 28-year-old forward has helped himself to eight goals so far this season and is usually joined up top by former Arsenal graduate Benik Afobe. The DR Congo international has nine goals to his name in the Sky Bet Championship this season. 

It's a particularly kind fixture for the Reds, in terms of recent history at least, with Barnsley coming out on top against the Lions in nine of the last 15 meetings, and unbeaten in the league at The Den since November of 2013.

STYLES PRE-MILLWALL

8 April 2022

We drew 1-1 there last season when Alex Mowatt's 30-yard screamer was cancelled out before half time when Jake Cooper rose highest to power in the equaliser.

Our most recent victory away against Millwall came in December of 2019 when Patrick Schmidt famously headed home a stoppage winner to earn us a first away win of the 19/20 season. 

This Saturday's man in the middle will be Oliver Langford. The West Midlands native last took charge of a Barnsley fixture back in August of last year when the Reds were beaten 1-0 on home soil by Luton Town.

REDS THRASHED BY LIONS

9 April 2022

It was another disappointing afternoon on the road for Barnsley, beaten by Millwall at The Den.

Despite a promising start to the game where full-back Callum Brittain nearly put the Reds ahead inside the first minute, once the hosts took the lead against the run of play, there was only likely going to be one outcome. 

Brittain's early chance saw him denied at point-blank range by the legs of Lions' 'keeper Bartosz Bialkowski, whilst Callum Styles later had an even better opportunity from a similar area, slightly more central, but shot straight at the Polish 'keeper. 

Our own goalie was substituted just before the half-hour mark; Brad Collins with an upper body injury, so a first league appearance of the season for Jack Walton, who would soon be picking the ball out of the Reds' net. 

The home side went ahead on 30 minutes when Danny McNamara scored at the far post following initial good wing-play by the always-impressive Jed Wallace. 

There was little in the way of a reaction as we approached the break, with Barnsley entering it knowing they'd got it all to do if they were to find a response in the second half.

HALF-TIME: Millwall 1-0 Barnsley

Things went from bad to worse straight after the restart when McNamara - who had never scored for Millwall prior to today - was at the back stick to double the Lions' lead. 

But a dispirited-looking Reds side somehow found a way back into the contest when the recalled Romal Palmer rocketed a left-footed effort into the top corner from just inside the area. 

This sparked Barnsley into life briefly, with Domingos Quina testing Bialkowski from distance whilst Styles would blast an effort over the crossbar and then Carlton Morris saw a goalbound strike blocked by a retreating defender.

However, there was to be no comeback in the capital. Oliver Burke scrambled home a third Millwall goal despite Walton's best efforts to claw away the first attempt, and then with 10 minutes to play, Benik Afobe wrapped up a comfortable afternoon's work for Gary Rowett's side when he slotted home inside the box following a flick-on. 

Another poor Reds display on the road and a defeat that pushes us closer to the drop.

FULL-TIME: Millwall 4-1 Barnsley

Collins (Walton), Brittain, Andersen, Kitching, Vita, Palmer (Leya Iseka), Gomes, Bassi, Quina, Styles (Adeboyejo), Morris.

Unused: Moon, Wolfe, Oduor, Christie-Davies.
