A busy summer at The Den, with 15 players leaving, but with only half the number incoming, but with some good Championship experience in Connor Mahoney, Alex Pearce, Sam Smith and Jón Daði Böðvarsson. Whether it will be enough to improve on last seasons 21st place finish is another question.
Millwall Opening Fixtures
Millwall will be happy with the opening set of fixtures, facing only 1 of the relegated teams in an away trip to Fulham in Week 4, and 1 of the playoff teams in WBA, also away, in week 2. These fixtures come with an opening day home tie against Preston, with another home game in week 3 against Sheffield Wednesday. Week 5 brings an away day at Middlesbrough, with a home game against Hull in week 6.
Millwall Penalty Takers
Midfielder Shaun Williams and Ben Marshall both scored one and had one penalty saved last season, with fellow midfielder Ben Marshall converting his sole penalty taken.
To split the main penalty taker, we can note that Williams scored the only penalty taken in either Cup competition that was not in a shootout.
Millwall EFL Fantasy Picks
5 goals and 7 assists for centre back Jack Smith is marred by 10 yellow cards, with Williams also collecting 5 yellow cards to go along with 5 goals, 3 assists and penalties alongside. New striker Matt Smith brings a wealth of Championship experience, yet on the back of 6 goals and 1 assist in 923 minutes at former club QPR, mostly coming from the bench.
Millwall Predicted Lineup
4-4-2: Fielding; Romeo, Pearce, Cooper, Meredith; Mahoney, Williams, Leonard, Ferguson; Smith, Böðvarsson
