Millwall boss Gary Rowett has got his dates exactly right for the restart of the Championship season.
The Lions boss has been saying for more than six weeks that the campaign will resume on June 20 – and today came confirmation it will be against his former club Derby behind closed doors (1pm).
His side will then get a week-long gap to recover before playing at Barnsley’s Oakwell ground on June 27 – but that will begin a string of eight games in four weeks until the final match, a home contest with Huddersfield, on July 22.
The midweek matches are scheduled to alternate between Tuesdays and Wednesdays, starting with a Tuesday home game against Swansea on June 30 at 5pm – which is scheduled to be screened live on Sky.
The trip across Blackheath to The Valley, for the crucial contest against local rivals Charlton, is on July 4 (3pm).
The last five games are as follows:
- Wednesday July 8 at home against Middlesbrough (7.45pm)
- Saturday July 11 against Hull at the KCOM Stadium (3pm)
- Tuesday July 14 at home against Blackburn (7.45pm)
- Saturday July 18 against QPR at Loftus Road (3pm)
All fixtures will be played behind-closed-doors as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Kick-off times are being discussed between clubs for many of the remaining fixtures and are therefore subject to change.
2019/20 season ticket holders will be able to watch all of Millwall’s remaining games – both home and away – for free on iFollow, including any selected for coverage on Sky Sports. Any match not chosen for broadcast on Sky will also be available for all other Lions fans to watch live on iFollow for the regular Match Pass price of £10.
