Big Preview: Burnley v Millwall

7 February 2014

Burnley v Millwall
Turf Moor
8/2/13 (Kick-off 3pm)

Burnley will look to get back to winning ways after three successive draws in the league. 
The Clarets go in to the match on the back of a thrilling 3-3 clash at Queens Park Rangers last weekend, having previously drawn their last two home games against Brighton Hove Albion and Sheffield Wednesday.

Millwall, with new manager Ian Holloway at the helm, have had indifferent form of late. Their last outing saw them comfortably beaten 3-0 by in-form Reading at the New Den.

Last Five Matches

Millwall Star Man: Martyn Woolford
The 28-year-old is Millwall’s top goalscorer so far this season with five goals. The winger has been with the club for over a year now, having joined from Bristol City in January 2013. Millwall fans will have been familiar with Woolford, as his goal for former team Scunthorpe United broke the Lion’s hearts as he scored the winner against them in a 3-2 victory in the League One play-off final back in 2009. He is predominately a winger but can be used as support to the attack.

Stat of the Day
Following Manchester City’s home defeat on Monday night, Burnley and Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea are the only two teams out of the 92 Premier and Football League sides that remain undefeated at home in the league this season.

They Say: 
Sean Dyche: “Millwall have brought a lot of players in and they are obviously looking to change things. You can’t guard against that though. All we can do is make sure or players are aware that there are different ways of playing, but the lads have come across virtually all of them now, with 4-5-1, 3-5-3 and 4-3-3. 
“But tactics can only do so much. It’s about the players and I really do believe when we put in a performance we are absolutely a team to be reckoned with in this division.”

Ian Holloway: “Even with my previous record there, where I haven't won in a while (11 games), I don't think that is relevant. 
“I'm going there with Millwall now and they better watch out, that's how I feel.
"I've been very unlucky there in the past and I feel it's about time that changed.”

Referee: K.Stroud
