Are Millwall in need of a miracle?

On Saturday, Millwall are taking to the pitch against the Premier League side, Everton.

Millwall progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup courtesy of two goals from substitute Shane Ferguson. In the space of three minutes, the Lions sensationally came from behind to beat Hull City 2-1.

However, the momentum did not carry on into their league campaign, with The Lions falling foul of a 2-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers.

The cross-over to Merseyside and Everton’s fortune has not been much sweeter. Although they are hovering around the middle of the first division table, they dropped points to Southampton in a 2-1 defeat last week.

Championship side, Millwall, are 20th in the league. They are two positions and four points away from the relegation zone. Fans will be hoping a shock FA Cup victory will reignite their season and inspire their squad in time for next week’s game against Rotherham. Victory then would begin to propel them up the league table

Although both teams are only separated by one division, anything other than a loss would be seen as a remarkable feat for the South-east London team.

With the Toffees likely to field a strong side, Neil Harris will be hoping his side can neutralise the threats of top-scorer Gylfi Sigurdsson and their talismanic forward, Richarlison.
