Millwall will be hoping for another Premier League scalp in the FA Cup as they host Brighton in the quarter-finals at 2pm on Sunday.
The Lions have already beaten Everton 3-2 at the Den this season and will be hoping for a similar performance as a trip to Wembley awaits the winner.
Millwall vs Brighton
Millwall manager Neil Harris believes Brighton will know what to expect when they make the trip to south London and how big of an opportunity it is.
Brighton have beaten Sky Bet Championship opponents in the last two rounds – West Brom over two games and Derby last time out in the competition –
and manager Chris Hughton believes the cup is there for anyone to win.
This weekend could be the wrong time for Millwall to face Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup quarter-final.
That’s the view of former Brighton defender Mark Lawrenson, who is predicting that the cup tie could go the distance at The Den.
In his weekly predictions feature for the NewGersy website, Lawrenson has said he thinks it will be a close contest as the Lions take on Premier League opponents in the cup for the second time this season.
