Blues face a Millwall side that will be looking to get back to winning ways after three straight draws and a defeat to Hull.
We all know this one will probably be a low scoring game with Rowett setting up his team that are hard to break down.
Blues’ injury woes continue to be a concern in midfield, however, we could see promising youngster Jordan James start again in midfield, as well as George Friend entering the fray.
The Den is always a tough place to go to for any team, but it will no doubt be a great day out for the travelling Bluenoses nonetheless.
We caught up with Millwall podcast ‘That Millwall Podcast’ ahead of the game to give a deeper insight into The Lions’ season so far and how tomorrow’s game will unravel:
First of all, can you introduce yourself and your podcast and where to find you?
I’m Kai, from That Millwall Podcast with Micky and Omer. You can find us @thatmillwallpod across all social media.
How would you rate your season so far under Rowett?
7 – It’s our best start to a league season in a long time, and it has meant we have been very close to the play-offs. The last couple of games have made the gap a little bigger, but if we can get a little run going we can easily get back up there.
Only one win in 6, what do you think has been Millwall’s downfall of late?
Our downfall of late, has simply been not being able to put the ball into the back of the net on more than one occasion per match. Games against Derby and Bournemouth we have deserved to win and the problem has been not being able to find that winner.
Are the fans happy with the Millwall boss and his style of play?
Fans are split with Gary Rowett and his style of play. Rowett wants to be organised, compact and hard to beat, which has worked many times. But what fans would love to see is a bit more attacking like we played against Bournemouth. That was superb!
What key players should we keep an eye on and who’s been performing well so far this term?
Our key players, one is clearly Jed Wallace. A player that can get suddenly spark our team into life. His quick feet and skill means any defence has to watch him closely. The other player is Benik Afobe. The Stoke loanee has come to life in recent games. He scored a fantastic goal against the Cherries before putting the ball on a plate for Tom Bradshaw to score against Hull. Him, Jed and Sheyi Ojo or Mason Bennett are a nightmare for defences due to their pace. A special mention goes to Daniel Ballard. The Arsenal loanee has been fantastic since he arrived at the start of the season, him and Hutchinson have been solid at the back. He can turn defence into attack very quickly with his long diagonal passes.
What’s your best and least favourite memory of playing Birmingham?
My favourite moment against Birmingham in recent years has to be our 1-0 win at your place in the 2017/18 season. I believe Fred Onyedinma scored our winner to keep us in and around the play-offs. My worst was a 2-0 defeat at The Den a couple of years ago, we were poor that night!
Finally, looking ahead to tomorrow’s game, do you think you can get anything from the game and what’s your score prediction?
Score prediction- I hope we can get something from the game, three points would be great if we could get them – Millwall 1-0 Birmingham City – goalscorer – Benik Afobe.
