Match Previews

Match preview: Forest vs Millwall in association with Football Index

5 March 2020

Check out all you need to know ahead of the big game at The City Ground between Nottingham Forest and Millwall in the match preview, in association with Football Index.

Nottingham Forest are back in action on Trentside as they welcome play-off chasing Millwall for another evenly-contested clash in the Championship on Friday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

The Reds secured four points on the road in the last week, defeating Cardiff and drawing at Middlesbrough, and will be hoping to make that seven points against The Lions.

Millwall are one of the sides lurking outside the top six at the moment and will be looking to gatecrash the play-offs come May, but will have to turn their recent form around if they are to stand a chance. 

Team news

Sabri Lamouchi has confirmed that Samba Sow will be sidelined once again for the match against Millwall, but is hopeful that he can return for the trip to Sheffield Wednesday next weekend. 

Tiago Silva is sidelined again, and will be for a couple of weeks, with John Bostock and Joao Carvalho pushing for starting spots after impressive cameos off the bench at Middlesbrough.

From the opposition

Millwall manager Gary Rowett says his side must kick on if they are to reach the top six, despite there being no pressure on his side to do so.


"I remember speaking about our ambitions for the team, what we felt was achievable, and I certainly felt within a two- or three-year period we could challenge for the top six," Rowett said.

"But the initial aim was just to stabilise. Obviously we wanted to show ambition and win games, but the main objective was to make sure that we weren't battling down the bottom of the division, and instead seeing where we could climb to in the table.

"Sometimes we can get caught up in where we are in the league, if we can win a game or not win a game and the disappointment if we don't win. The expectation levels have climbed a little because we've done quite well, which is only right.

"But to still be in the mix with 10 games to go, I think a lot of credit can go to the players. The disappointment of not winning the game against Bristol City, who have had four years to build in the Championship, to be disappointed to draw against Fulham, shows what we think we can achieve.

"Yes, we're five points off the top six, but I just want to see if we can do what we can to win every game."

Match Reports

Forest 0-3 Millwall

6 March 2020

Three first-half goals condemned Nottingham Forest to defeat against Millwall at The City Ground.

Matt Smith struck a hat-trick as The Reds’ promotion bid took a blow on a disappointing night on Trentside.

Sabri Lamouchi made one change to the side which drew at Middlesbrough on Monday, with Joao Carvalho returning to the starting line-up in place of Ryan Yates, and the Portuguese midfielder made a bright start as he looked to create an opening for The Reds.

He had the game’s first effort on target as he drilled a low shot straight at Bartosz Bialkowski in the Millwall goal before Joe Lolley fizzed an effort over the crossbar from the edge of the area.

It was a lively opening quarter-of-an-hour with both sides showing plenty of intent going forward, but it was the visitors who made the most of it, taking the lead through Smith on 20 minutes. Some good work by Murray Wallace down the left led to him playing in a low cross which Smith stooped to head firmly past Samba and give the visitors the advantage.

The goal seemed to suck the life out of Forest and spur on Millwall and on 26 it was two as Jayson Molumby’s shot from 12 yards out deflected off the boot of Smith and into the back of the net.

The Lions’ confidence was soaring and just after the half-hour mark they added a third, Smith again causing the Forest defence problems as he rose highest at a corner to head home from close range and complete his hat-trick.

Forest came out for the second half in positive fashion, looking for an immediate response after the break. They probed for openings without creating anything clear-cut, Carvalho shooting over the bar and a number of crosses testing the Millwall defence which held firm.

John Bostock came off the bench and hit a stinging shot just after the hour-mark, forcing Bialkowski to parry clear and again on 78, this time from further out with Bialkowski producing an even better save.

The visitors defended resolutely, keeping Forest at arm’s length as The Reds found no way through on a disappointing night at The City Ground.
