A Look At Our Visitors

Millwall are among many teams in the Championship who will be looking to keep in and around the top six as the season develops, currently sitting 11th in the table.

Gary Rowett’s side have proven hard to beat in recent weeks, losing just one of their last eight matches, and in that spell came four victories in succession – which PNE will be looking to achieve themselves this weekend.

Having finished eighth, 11th and ninth in their previous three campaigns respectively, the Lions will be hoping this can be their year to make that final push towards the Play-Off spots.

One To Watch

There was tons of excitement surrounding the arrival of Dutch attacker Zian Flemming when he arrived at The Den in the summer for an undisclosed fee – quickly being nicknamed the ‘Bermondsey Bergkamp’.

The Ajax Academy product had scored a combined 24 goals in his previous two seasons with Fortuna Sittard, so it appeared to be something of a coup when he was announced as a Millwall player.

Although it perhaps took him a few weeks to get into his stride in the English game, he’s now looking like the talent everyone hoped for, and he enjoyed a purple patch either side of the September international break when he scored five goals in as many games.

Match Officials

Oliver Langford will referee his second PNE game of the season on Saturday.

His previous North End fixture was the 0-0 draw at home to Rotherham United, and he was also set to take charge of the trip to Norwich City in October, but was replaced by Dean Whitestone in the days leading up to the game.

So far this season, he’s shown 55 yellow cards and one red in 15 matches, and he will be assisted on Saturday by Robert Merchant and James Wilson, with Seb Stockbridge on fourth official duty.
