The Tigers head to South London on Saturday to take on Millwall at The Den. Both teams went out of the EFL Cup in midweek with City scoring a late equaliser at Preston North End before losing on penalties. Millwall gave up 87th and 94th minute goals against Oxford United before going on to also lose on penalties so both sides will head into this game with a point to prove after late equalisers and both teams suffering defeat via penalties.

Grant McCann will be without Daniel Batty to an ankle injury whilst Brandon Fleming and Eric Lichaj also remain doubts. Yet again this means the fullback position is completely open with McCann choosing different pairings throughout the season as he tries to solve the huge problems The Tigers have been suffering out wide.

With Daniel Batty missing, City lose out on a lot of energy in midfield but having recruited well in the summer on top of the current players, but having only played one of the last three Championship matches, his spot should be well covered.

Millwall are currently sat in 11th position on 8 points, double the current total McCann's side have amassed sat in 20th place.
