Ok lets get this started.Buzzing for this game.Unfortunately we seem to have gone from a fully fit squad to having injury concerns.Billy Clarke is definitely out with a fractured cheekbone,there is also douts for Hanson,Burke and Cullen the latter two being my biggest worry.Hopefully all will be fit and we win 2-0 but in all honesty this is going to be a tight and nervous affair which could go either way

how on earth Bradford made top 6 mystifies me, really average side who don,t score many at all. Millwall best team at Vale by a country mile despite Warsaw murdering us 5-0.
Anything can happen in play-offs , almost a lottery, Barnsley for me to win the whole thing.

Only scored 2 less than Burton. Defences generally win promotions.

Hoping Bradford come up out of the play-off four, it's a very under-rated away day imo, plenty of drinking in the centre. Been to Barnsley loads of times and Walsall is a shit away day, wouldn't mind Millwall coming up but in terms of London trips, it's not the best.

Well, whilst you're voting for players I've never even heard of in the Player of the season position ranks, we have kept 28 clean sheets this season - 23 of those in the league.

That's why we're up there! We're also up there because we're a very good squad.

I fear the worst with this one. I have zero confidence; but then again, I've said this all season.

There should be a near sell out, with 2200 travelling Lions.

Narrow win. Probably another 1-0. Then we go to Millwall and lose.

22. (17 for us)

I note you had 11 1-nil wins in the league, in your 23 wins, compare to only 4 1-nils in our 24.

Points to the 1st goal being even more important to this 2 legged tie,

I'd almost go as far as saying whoever scores first will win the tie.

At least Vale fans are consistent, telling us we weren't good enough for the Play Off's last summer and still scratching their heads after we finished comfortably inside the top 6...

Anyway on to Sunday, I think we'll win, it's the away leg that concerns me, fingers crossed this sudden injury spike isn't as bad as is being made out

Classic PP mindgames. I say mindgames, he does it before every big game. Fairly certain Hanson and Burke will both be perfectly fit and both play.

Millwall fans, how are the return leg tickets selling in your home end? Our priority holders will likely take up 1700 of our allocation, and we should sell out providing we don't lose 4-0 on Sunday.

18k purchased so far inc Millwalls lot, so should hopefully see circa 20000+ attendance.

It's been a very disappointing take up so far, given we sold 18000 tickets in 6 hours for the home leg against Reading last season.

I'm sure there's some sections of our support who genuinely believe that the ST will allow them in for this fixture.

Did the Hudds game sell this quickly? I seem to remember I got my ticket pretty easily, though I was an ST holder that year.

Only been on sale since Tuesday, think they are going at similar rate, but will have 1,000 more away fans.
Don't think blocks 27-30 are on general sale.

Will be an even better away day next season with Sunbridge Wells opening and the further expansion on Broadway and North Parade.

Changing my prediction. Think Millwall will come away comfortable winners.

Did Martin even get booked for that handball? McMahon is lucky to still be on the pitch aswell.

Bradford replicating the Wimbledon style of play.

What a start. McMahon should've been sent off and Martin should've at least been shown a yellow. Decent penalty from McMahon and poor keeping for Millwall's goal
