Lifelong Millwall fan Jimi Matthews, an exiled Lions fan living in Norwich and club operations manager at Little Melton-based Crusaders Rugby Club, preview’s today’s clash.
What have you made of Millwall’s start to the season, frustrating or encouraging?
Frustrating really, we’ve looked on top in all of the games so far, but we can’t take chances when they come, we look good going forwards.
Do you think Neil Harris is the right man to secure Championship survival?
Where Millwall are concerned Neil is a legend and a club hero, if anyone can take Millwall places it’s Neil. ‘Survival’ is a bit strong, I think top half and pushing with two months to go, but I’m an optimistic Lion. We’re in the league we deserve to be in and are staying here.
Have you been pleased with the club’s business during the transfer window so far?
Yes and no, I hear we were in for Neymar at one stage; but he didn’t want to travel to places like Ipswich for a game!
Just how important will former Norwich striker Steve Morison be this season?
You mean hero of the play-offs who we let Norwich borrow to help them out when they were struggling? He should score, and if not he’ll be checking his back pocket for Ivo Pinto at the end of the game!
Who are the other key players in the squad?
The key ‘players’ are the fans, to steal Delia’s line, they are the 12th man, the Den is a fortress for visitors and Saturday should see a warm welcome for the visiting team, Lions feast on Canaries??
Do you expect Norwich to be in the promotion mix?
Living and working in Norwich I’d like to say so, but not at the expense of Millwall. Norwich is a great city and a lovely club, so I hope they do well.
And finally, what is your prediction for today’s game?
Millwall by two clear goals.
