Mowbray's message "MILLWALL find themselves in the bottom three at the moment, which is a surprise to me.

"They've got a lot of pace, a lot of strength, they're dynamic in midfield and we are going to have to defend well against them to keep them out and give them problems going the other way. They haven't been winning games so they won't be in the most confident mood in the world. But after the break they'll come refreshed and ready to go and give us a game and we have to be ready for what's coming."

Boro form guide BORO have now gone three games without scoring and five without conceding.

Despite a hat-trick of goalless draws, Boro remain second in the Championship table.

Tony Mowbray will be hoping to improve on a record of just one home win in five attempts so far this season.

Boro last won at home on August 21, when they beat Birmingham 3-1. Since then they've been held by Coventry, Ipswich and Leicester.

Boro last conceded a league goal on August 27 when Lucas Jutkiewicz scored for Coventry.

Beat the bookies GAZETTE tipster William Chrimes has teamed up with online betting exchange Betdaq.

He says: "With home advantage, Boro should be far too strong for the visitors and I wouldn't put anyone off backing a home win at 10/11 on Betdaq.

Opposition view BOSS Kenny Jackett believes Patrick Agyemang will make a big impact for Millwall - and he hopes that will start against Boro tomorrow.

Agyemang has joined the Lions on a one-month loan deal from QPR and Jackett feels the much-travelled striker, who is set to feature at the Riverside, has plenty to offer.

"I've been pleased to add what I consider to be an experienced forward," Jackett said. "He has a lot of pace. We've at times played in front of people and he can get behind defences and also he can go on runs of goals."

Millwall form guide THE Lions simply haven't got going this season.

They exceeded expectations last season, finishing ninth following promotion via the League One play-offs. But they've won just once in the Championship this term, beating Forest back in August.

Away from the New Den it's been a sorry tale.

Kenny Jackett's outfit have taken one point from a possible 15 on the road, scoring just three goals and conceding 11.

Millwall have lost five of their last six matches in all competitions, scoring just once.

In the know "EXPECTATIONS were high that the club would match last season's achievements if not better them. …
