History of the Millwall v Gillingham fixture

Millwall prepare to entertain Gillingham at The Den on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Lions are clearly on top, having won 25 and lost only 4 of the 39 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Den was just last season, in December 2002, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League Division One match.
