Millwall will have over 2,200 fans at Loftus Road for tonight’s derby clash with Queens Park Rangers.
The west London club moved above Millwall after a 2-1 victory at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.
Steve McClaren’s side had a torrid start to the campaign as they were drubbed 7-1 at West Bromwich Albion and followed up with a 3-0 home reverse to Bristol City on August 21.
But they have not lost since then. Former Lions youngster Eberechi Eze scored at the weekend.
Millwall manager Neil Harris said: “The number of fans we are taking shows they love watching us play. That support is great.
“QPR are just coming through a transition period where they have changed manager and are finding their way. But even in difficult times with the financial constraints, they have still managed to sign two Premier League forwards [Nakhi Wells and Tomer Hemed] who are on ridiculous amounts of money.
“They have got real firepower going forward. It is a great place to play football. We are looking forward to it, especially off the back of a really good team performance against Leeds.”
