AFC Wimbledon vs Millwall: Score prediction, team news, live stream, TV, h2h – FA Cup preview
Two FA Cup giant-killers collide in a fifth-round south London derby at the Cherry Red Records Stadium this afternoon.

AFC Wimbledon sit rock bottom and seven points adrift of safety with only 14 matches remaining in the third tier despite winning at Walsall in midweek.

But such a dismal league performance has done little to quell their appetite for a cup shock.

Under the guidance of Crazy Grange alumnus Wally Downes, the Dons stunned Joey Barton’s Fleetwood in a five-goal

thriller thanks to a 90th-minute winner from Kwesi Appiah before going 3-0 up in just 46 minutes at home to West Ham.

They then held off a spirited Hammers fightback to claim a famous 4-2 victory.

Opponents Millwall will be glancing nervously over their shoulders in the Championship relegation battle and currently hover just three points above the drop zone, albeit with a game in hand on their rivals.

They saw off Hull in round three before a controversial and highly dramatic 3-2 defeat of Premier League Everton.

AFC Wimbledon will be without Steve Seddon, Kwesi Appiah and James Hanson at home to Millwall in the FA Cup on Saturday.

On-loan left-back Seddon, who scored the Dons’ winner in the league against Walsall on Saturday, cannot play in the competition as he is cup-tied.

The fifth-round tie with the Lions comes too soon for Appiah, who is still struggling with a hamstring injury he suffered in a 2-0 defeat to Burton on February 9.

Fellow striker Hanson is back in training after a groin problem, but he, too, will not be ready in time.

While Tom Bradshaw will not play again this season due to a ruptured ACL sustained in November.

AFC Wimbledon is winless in four previous meetings against Millwall, losing two and drawing a pair.

These two sides could not be separated in either of their League One fixtures during the 2016-17 campaign, with a goalless draw at The Den followed two months later by an entertaining 2-2 tie in Kingston upon the Thames.

Millwall won their only previous FA Cup tie 4-1 in 2009 before also winning 2-1 in the League Cup in 2013.
