MILLWALL will be attempting to reach the third round of the FA Youth Cup when they take on Woodbridge Town at The Den tonight.

The young Lions comfortably defeated Dover Athletic 2-0 in the first round having fallen to Newcastle United at the same stage last year.

Coaches Larry McAvoy and David Connolly can name a strong side for the fixture.

The likes of Mikael Ndjoli and Ebere Eze have figured prominently in the Elite Development Squad’s promising season so far, while Millwall’s strength in the goalkeeping department is highlighted by the availability for tonight’s tie of England underage international Ryan Sandford and Harry Girling, who has twice been on the first-team bench this season.

And Noah Chesmain, who scored a brilliant goal against Dover to seal Millwall’s passage to the second round after Ryan Green (pictured, above) had given them the lead, played for the first team in pre-season.

The match kicks off at 7pm.
