History of the Stoke City v Millwall fixture

Millwall face a trip to Stoke City at Britannia Stadium on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Lions will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in November 2002, with Millwall inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the Potters in a League Division One match.
