Millwall manager Neil Harris has said that it will be difficult to ignore the Championship results for the weekend despite their FA Cup game against Brighton & Hove Albion. The South London side are currently just one point ahead of the drop zone but they could drop into the bottom three, if the matches don’t go their way.
Millwall can’t influence the league results for the weekend due to the FA Cup commitments against Brighton. The south London outfit have already bagged a major Cup scalp in Everton after a 3-2 comeback triumph in January and they have the chance to produce another potential upset when Brighton make the trip.
On paper, Brighton no doubt have the better team on paper for the quarter final but Chris Hughton’s side can still expect a tricky challenge, given their woes on the road. Meanwhile, the meetings between Brighton and Millwall have remained tight affairs and five of the previous eight games have produced stalemates. The same won’t be the case this weekend, given the replays have been scrapped for the quarter-final stage and a result must be found.
