Millwall's destiny is in their hands as they host Blackburn as the race for a Championship play-off place ends on Monday (May 8). 

The Lions enjoyed a great weekend after beating Blackpool 3-2 on Friday night, as they got to put their feet up as Sunderland and Blackburn dropped points.

So win against Blackburn and they reach the play-offs, draw or lose and things start to get coimplicated - the full details on all the different permutations can be found here.

It was not a particularly comfortable win over Blackpool, but Gary Rowett's side play pragmatic football which might suit them in a game of this magnitude.

Blackburn sit on 66 points after rescuing a draw against high-flying Luton, but know a win is the only way to squeeze their way into the play-off picture.


When these two sides met earlier in the season, Blackburn won the game 2-1, but that was back in October and much has changed.

This is the only game where two of the sides in contention are playing each other, which may prove to be beneficial as there is no choice but to feel the importance of a positive result. It may prove to be a play-off quarter-final. 

Time will tell whether they can pull it off, but Millwall may not have expected to be quite so in the mix as they have been this season, and wherever they finish it should be a springboard to compete again next season.
