Hmm, this one could be an interesting one at the County Ground.

Swindon probably have too much to do to get into the promotion race, but are safe in mid table and would probably love to disrupt Millwall's push for the top 2. Still, a strong final 12 games and you never know. Millwall on the other hand have been rolling of late but know if they are serious about the top 2, they can't afford to let results slip. Tricky game this, for both sides.

Form:
Swindon: LDWWWW
Millwall: WLWDDW

Still got cries of Miiilllll running through my head from Wembley. Came home and went to Liquid nightclub which just made the day shitter.

2-1 last min Obika winner. Or we'll come unstuck and lose 0-3.

That's what I love about you Bird, there's no sitting on the fence when it comes to predicting our scores, lmao.
I'm going for a 2-0 win for us, with Ajose and Doughty getting the goals, can see a decent crowd for this , with about a 1000 coming from Millwall in a attendance of 8500.

Difficult one to predict really. We're on a bit of a roll and playing pretty well whilst Swindon have improved immeasurably from earlier in the season.
That said, they were by far the worst team I've seen in league one this season and on that basis we ought to be looking to win this one.

Luckily, for us anyway, that 'team' at The Den bears no resemblance to the one that will play tomorrow. It was the final death throes of Mark Cooper v Luke Williams power struggle allied with 10 first team players being injured. Our last game against Donny was probably the most impressive of the season as an all-round performance. Saying that, Donny were proper shite

Will be a tough game, Swindon have been in form but have played pretty weak opposition in the last 4 you won, Colchester Utd, Blackpool, Peterborough and Doncaster, before last weeks postponed game.

Millwall have been better away from home this season, our style of play and group of players being more suited to those games than trying to break down teams sitting deep with numbers behind the ball.

Need a minimum of 7 points from Millwall, Cov and Wigan to try and keep our season rolling on as long as possible.

Hopefully Millwall bring a few down and create a bit of an atmosphere tomorrow, which has been shocking for a while now.

They're in good form, hopefully they come at us, we hit them on the break as we like to play away, then listen to the home fans whinge and complain about how they "can't understand how they're up there" after we've beaten them.

Aside from the results, the performances on the whole have been solid away from home as well, so not too many of those comments this season from memory.

Play-offs are looking increasingly more like a probability than a possibility so a point at an in-form Swindon would be a good result, regardless of our away record.

Well, that was disappointing. We were third at one stage this afternoon.

Start 4-4-2 then, not 3-5-2. When will we learn.

Bit of a dodgy pen and probably an undeserved point - but who gives a fuck?

Cracking game, how Morrison didn't get booked is beyond me, dirty player, nigglly fouls all off the time, should have been sent off at the end when he pushed Nathan over, but hey ho , we never say die and fight right on till the end, this team won't give in, quite happy tonight.
Looks like our best away support for the season travelling to Coventry next week, about 2000 going, should be a cracking atmosphere !

Millwall I guess :dk:

Still feel the same about us as before the game, much improved but too much to do to get the playoffs.

Think Millwall should be fine for them.

That was a brilliant game. Millwall are very good at what they do and looked like scoring every time they counter attacked us first half. Our defence (unsurprisingly) didn't have a clue what to do with Morison and Gregory. We huffed and puffed without creating much apart from a brilliantly saved Ajose header.

Second half was better from us and Millwall looked less solid as we threw more bodies forward. Suddenly the through balls which had brought them success were being snuffed out and we grew in confidence.

Not sure the pen should have been given, looked a bit soft. The ref was definitely a homer and gave us most 50/50 decisions. Didn't really see what happened for the winner but felt we deserved it based on our determination to get back into the game.

Decent atmosphere with a few idiots in the Town End who turned up plastered and clearly only bothered because it was Millwall and thought it'd be like Green Street. Predictably left the game after half an hour.

Yeah we were looking a little higher than that at one stage today. Whether we do anything come playoff time is the deal now.

Dogs and batons drawn after the game. Some things never change.

I for one, would actually like to thank the MIllwall fans for their attendance. The atmosphere in the ground was the best this season in my view, and a large away following always livens up the home crowd too. Need to be in the Championship for decent away attendances. Gonna have to wait another year before making a stab at that one but with P*x and possibly Rovers making their way up we may just have more games and atmospheres to look forward to. One more win, and we are guaranteed League One status next season, Play-Offs are totally unrealistic!

We paid the price for sitting on a lead in the 2nd half, soft penalty but poor defending, then not holding onto the ball in the corner or something in the 94th minute. Ref was appalling all game. Morison spat at the end with the defender 'jumping' into him celebrating a home draw was highlight of the day.

I know your lot celebrated like it was the winner, but you do know don't you, it wasn't.

Can't beat a last gasp goal. You can't tell me it didn't feel like you lost when it went in.

2 sides of the same coin

Judging by the reaction of your fans you would have thought we had relegated you , you do know you got a point chin up.

Football fans in wildly celebrating last minute equaliser shocker!

Give over with this nonsense already, I thought the Millwall celebration was quite amusing to be fair, something a bit different.

Anyway, as I couldn't make the game of course I missed a cracker. Delighted with the point against one of the better sides in the league. Shows our character once again to fight back from behind.
