Millwall host Stoke City at The Den in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides looking to start their season off with a win.

Millwall have not had their best pre-season campaign, having only won one of their last four games. Gary Rowett's side finished last season ninth in the Championship and will look to challenge for a playoff spot this season. They will want to kickoff their campaign with a win against Stoke City on Saturday.

Stoke City finished 14th in the Championship last season, having had an inconsistent campaign. Michael O'Neill's side will be heading into the game off the back of a 2-1 loss against Hearts in the final game of their pre-season campaign. They will look to bounce back with a win against Millwall on Saturday.

Millwall vs Stoke City Head-to-Head

Millwall have slightly edged the recent head-to-head record between the two sides, having won two of their last five meetings, with Stoke City winning only one.

Stoke's solitary victory came the last time the two sides met back in March. Jacob Brown's first-half goal and an own-goal from George Saville was enough to secure the win on the night.
