Eddie Gray delivers verdict on Leeds v Millwall, highlights main danger
By Derek Smithson
Eddie Gray has predicted Leeds will face a difficult test when they travel to Millwall on Saturday and said they will need to be wary of their freely goalscoring opponents.
The Whites travel to Millwall for a Championship fixture and will be looking to maintain their position at the top of the league.
Thomas Christiansen’s side are still unbeaten this season and have kept six consecutive clean sheets in the league.
They managed to edge past Birmingham 2-0 in the mid-week fixture and are now beginning to emerge as one of the leading teams for promotion.
Meanwhile, Millwall are 19th-placed in the league table following their promotion from League One last season.

Gray is expecting a tough fixture for Leeds at the weekend and has picked out Millwall’s goalscoring options as a big threat.
They have already scored 10 goals in their opening seven league games, with goals coming from all over the park.
“They [Millwall] have scored goals and their front boys will be a threat,” Gray told LUTV. “It will be interesting on Saturday because they’re scoring goals and we’re not conceding goals so that makes a good mix for a game.
“We know when we go their it’s always a bit hostile and it will be a difficult game.”
Millwall have been dealt a blow as striker Lee Gregory will miss the Leeds clash as the red card picked up against QPR has not been overturned.
Meanwhile, they are still without Tom Elliot due to his injury and he has scored three goals in his first six games this season.
Millwall still have powerhouse attacker Steve Morison in attack, who will love the physical battle against Whites defenders Liam Cooper and Pontus Jansson.
They also have midfielders Jed Wallace and George Saville who have begun the new campaign in strong form.
