West Ham to face Millwall

Filed: Thursday, 6th November 2014
By: Staff Writer

Batten down the hatches ... West Ham have been drawn against local rivals Millwall in the next round of the Under 21s Cup.

For what will almost certainly be the last time before West Ham move to Stratford in 2016, a Millwall team will provide the opposition at the Boleyn Ground on Monday, 24 November.

The two bitter rivals were paired in the next stage of the tournament after the Lions beat Colchester United in the previous stage of the competition.

Despite having been fierce opponents for the last century or so (mostly off the field of play), the two teams have only met on 26 occasions in their history at first team level.

West Ham have won 10 of those meetings, Millwall five with the remaining 11 drawn. The most recent meeting, which took place in February 2012 at the Boleyn ended 2-1 in West Ham's favour, thanks to Winston Reid's second half winner.
