No surprises in EFL Cup for Millwall

The first round of the 2022/2023 EFL Cup begins at the Abbey Stadium where Cambridge United will take on higher tier opposition in the guise of Millwall. The hosts won their clash with Milton Keynes Dons at the weekend in League One, as did the visitors in the Championship, who temporarily top the standings in their division. Both sides are expected to make changes for this competition, and it will be intriguing to see what effect it has on the outcome. Read our preview here:

Digby for treasure

Having had a long association with the club prior to taking the permanent reins two years ago, head coach Mark Bonner has overseen a rise in fortunes for the university city side, gaining promotion in 2020/2021 and then finishing comfortably in mid-table in the third tier last term. For Tuesday night's game, he will maintain the 4-2-3-1 shape that has stood them in good stead thus far, aiming to congest the middle of the park to restrict the visitors' space to create openings. Paul Digby hoovers up anything sent his way aerially in both open play and from set pieces, so the Lions may have to try another route to goal.

Mason's secret

Leeds United loanee Charlie Cresswell had a debut to remember at the Den, immediately endearing himself to the notoriously hard to please, partisan home supporters with a brace to down Stoke City. He is unlikely to feature in the cup from the start. Instead, the likes of George Saville and Mason Bennett are set to come in alongside Zian Flemming as more of the squad get some minutes under their belts early on in proceedings.

Betting tip

Both have made positive impressions, though one game apiece is difficult to get too much of a read into. Parimatch have odds of 3.90 for Millwall to get the win in 90 minutes with both teams scoring.
