Preview: Millwall vs. Queens Park Rangers - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Championship clash between Millwall and Queens Park Rangers, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Tuesday night sees Queens Park Rangers travel to Millwall, a club that has had its reputation marred in recent days after a group of fans were heard booing as the players took the knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

For Millwall, the result was equally disappointing as they were edged out by Derby County 1-0 after they spurned a number of chances to take something away from the fixture.

QPR come into this fixture off the back of three defeats on the spin, after they went down 2-0 away to Huddersfield Town.

Gary Rowett's Millwall side come into this fixture without a win in seven, including five draws, and find themselves 14th in the table after 16 games.

The South London side were unfortunate to not come away with anything on Saturday, and it was Jason Knight's strike that compounded what was a bad day for the club.

Millwall's home form has been a real dent in their campaign to date, with only one win at the New Den this season, not to mention losses in three of their last four league games against QPR, as many as in their previous 18 against the Hoops.

Any kind of result will be welcomed by Rowett's men as they are now winless in their last eight league matches, losing the last two in a row.

QPR's lacklustre performance away to Huddersfield left manager Mark Warburton reeling, with a particularly scathing post-match interview that suggested his side were second best all over the pitch.

He will take heart from their last performance at Millwall, and his side will go in search of consecutive away wins against Millwall for the first time, having won 2-1 last season.

To get a result, however, they will need to end a torrid run of form that has seen them win just one of their last 12 away games in all competitions.

Warburton will hope that his personal record against Millwall comes good again, as he has never lost a league match against the Lions in five previous meetings.

Millwall Championship form: DDDDLL

Tom Bradshaw could return to the Millwall XI, leaving Gary Rowett to decide who to start between Matt Smith, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Troy Parrott in attack.

The only other selection dilemma lies in who to start in the centre of midfield between Shaun Williams and Ryan Leonard, with the latter starting on the weekend against Derby.

Lyndon Dykes came off at half-time away to Huddersfield, with Mark Warburton saying he was "leggy" adding that he could have been one of eight changes at that moment in the game.

Warburton could look to ring the changes after a string of disappointing results but has not stated any specific changes since the loss to Derby.

Millwall possible starting lineup:
Bialkowski; Hutchinson, Pearce, M Wallace; Romeo, Woods, Williams, Malone; J Wallace, Smith, Bradshaw

Queens Park Rangers possible starting lineup:
Dieng; Kakay, Dickie, Barbet, Wallace; Ball, Carroll; Samuel, Chair, Willock; Dykes

We say: Millwall 1-1 Queens Park Rangers

Neither side has been convincing of late, and that is why we are predicting them to cancel each other out, with the spoils being shared at full time.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
