Would it be an exaggeration to say that this could be our biggest game for years?

Hopefully our new mangers first game and it's been so long since our last win 3 points would be the boost we all need.

Well we are almost at midweek and it looks like it will be Stockdale in the dugout.

The story so far

Milwall are currently sitting in 19th place after a rather tepid start to the season. The London side have struggled from the off, losing on the opening day 1-0 to Nottingham Forest, and the Lions did not win until the final game of August where they hammered Norwich 4-0.
September looked to be another poor month as they lost 1-0 away to Wolverhampton. That defeat, however, was followed by a four game unbeaten run in which Millwall won two and drew two - including an impressive 1-0 home victory over high-flying Leeds United at the Den.
Neil Harris and his team picked up four points in October, their only win coming at home to lowly Birmingham City. Away from home the Lions have been desperately poor, and are yet to taste victory picking up just five away points thus far.

Last time out

Millwall welcomed Nigel Clough and Burton to The Den, where the hosts would surely have fancied themselves to win against a team that have really struggled this season - particularly defensively.
The Lions went down to 10 men on 58 minutes after dominating proceedings, but Marvin Sordell scored the visitors only shot of the day to give the away side a precious three points - a result that helped Sunderland to drop down to the bottom of the division. Millwall were fairly dominant - outshooting their visitors, controlling possession, having more corners and more clear cut chances. A lack of cutting edge cost the hosts; this was summed up by Lee Gregory hitting the post in the final moment of the game.


Dangerman

Former Wolverhampton Wanderers player George Saville is likely to be the man to cause Sunderland problems on Saturday. Saville is a box-box midfielder, with an eye for the net - demonstrated by his four goals scored already this season in a struggling Millwall side.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][size=13]George Saville is having a splendid season so far. Photo by James Chance/Getty Images[/size]


Treatment room

Jed Wallace will miss this weekend's game after his red card appeal was rejected by the FA. Shaun Williams is still a long-term absentee, and he is not expected back until Christmas. Apart from those two, Millwall look to have a full squad of players heading into the weekend’s game.


Manager

Neil Harris is a playing legend at Millwall and he is already starting to form a managerial legacy at the club he so clearly loves. Harris is the record goalscorer for Millwall - 138 goals in all competitions - and he played over 400 games for the Lions over two spells.
Harris first took the Millwall job as a caretaker in 2013 before being replaced by Ian Holloway. Harris then took over from the mess that Holloway left in 2015. The season had been a shambles, and despite a spirited comeback late in the campaign, Millwall were relegated to League One.
Just 24 hours after relegation was confirmed, Harris was unveiled as the new Millwall boss. His first season was a largely successful one that saw the Lions miss promotion virtue of a playoff semi-final defeat to Bradford City. However, Millwall were determined last season to prove they were good enough to be in the Championship and Harris guided his side into the playoffs again, and this time there was to be no heartbreak.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][size=13]Neil Harris featured in the FA Cup semi-final when Millwall defeated Sunderland in 2004. Photo by Gary M. Prior/Getty Images[/size]
Millwall defeated Bradford City, the side who beaten them in the semi-finals a year earlier, by a score of 1-0 confirming that they would be back in the Championship.
Harris also guided Millwall to a FA Cup quarter final last season, where they defeated three Premier League sides: Watford, Bournemouth and Leicester before eventually losing 6-0 to Spurs.


Referee

Tim Robinson will referee Sunderland for the second time this season and hopefully we get a better result than in his first outing. Robinson was the whistler for our diabolical 5-2 away defeat at Ipswich Town, which was probably the night in which our former gaffer Simon Grayson lost the dressing room and fans.
Robinson will also be refereeing Millwall for a second time this season, as he saw them win 1-0 at home to Leeds in September.
Watch out for a red card this weekend - Robinson has handed out eight already this season in just 19 games!

@Phil__Smith
Billy Jones is out for 3-4 weeks. Didier Ndong has had a family bereavement and so may not be available. Browning and Watmore training again


@Phil__Smith
Stockdale said he has not had any conversation about taking the job full time.

Well match day is here and I will catch the bus today with an extra spring in my step. Of course Coleman coming does not wave away the problems in one fell swoop but in these times of what has been a constant barrage of bad news its good to finally have something to cheer us up and give us a lift.

Can it bring us a much needed three points, well all we can do is hope but what a good way to welcome a new manager and what a lift for us going down to meet The Bruce on Tuesday evening.

Our next home game sees us take on Reading on 2nd December and dare we hope for 3 points today, at least a draw against Villa then an away win at Burton could transform our season and see a full stadium welcome the new manager.

Of course we may do none of that but lets start with mission one, 3 points today please.

Just back from a very cold Stadium of Light and imo Coleman will have been encouraged by today's performance.

Williams was looking good before being injured and both Full backs and wingers, Mcmanaman and McGready looked good, for me we were by far the better team and I stick by my view that we have a mid table squad IMO.

The weak link was there for all to see and he was between the sticks, I was right behind Millwall's first goal, he shot and no problem, straight at the keeper and we could not believe it when their fans cheered and their players celebrated how was it not saved?

We were talking on the way home and all agreed that Mika must be very  bad not to get a game.

Onwards and upwards.

Don't they reckon that Kit Symons is the notorious "secret footballer"?

"The Stadium of Light forgave him"?

Poor bloke was cheered/jeered every time he touched the ball....even when he caught the ball thrown to him by a ball boy!
In the first half the crowd were a "nasty" crowd imo...more people seemed intent on slagging the team off than supporting...no the wonder the players especially the keeper were nervous!....mind the crowd got right behind the team in the second half

Again though these “players” have been involved with competitive football from at least the age of 10/11 and should be used to it, if it bothers them that much then please move on
Didn’t get many positives from yesterday goalkeepers for both were horrendous however, that won’t be the case for all our games selling Mannone seems a very shrewd business move now NOT.
Again we kept going after going behind something which over the last few years has even lacking. We also battered them for the last 15 or so minutes so maybe a bit unlucky not to nick it.
My Millwall mates were more than happy with the point as they put it we Sunderland a PL side recently relegated struggled against a recently promoted via the play offs side from League 1 and, to be fair I had no answer for it. I will again be honest although I didn’t admit it to them I was happy with the point after going 2-1 down, at least we didn’t lose.
