Millwall are set to play their first ever competitive home match against Barnet in a Capital One Cup first round tie.

After the Lions’ opening day success at Shrewsbury Town, boss Neil Harris will be determined to keep up their momentum.

Martin Allen’s Bees, themselves playing in SE16 for the first time in their history, were promoted back to the football league after a two-year hiatus last season.

As many as four former Millwall players could feature in the tie, with Shaun Batt, Graham Stack, Curtis Weston and Kevin Lisbie all on Barnet’s books.

Lions manager Neil Harris wrote in his programme notes: “Tonight’s match promises to be a real tough test for us.

“Martin’s side will be organised and physical in their approach and we look forward to the challenge that presents us in a competitive London derby.”

Speaking after Barnet’s opening day defeat at Leyton Orient, manager Martin Allen told “I’ve just shaken all of our players by the hand, and said well done to all of them for their effort and their commitment.

“On another day if those chances had gone in we would have won that game.

“It was a great test for us, and I thought we acquitted ourselves very well.

“There are no new injuries, apart from Shaun Batt who had a tight calf when he was warming up.

“I’ll make changes to the team on Tuesday night and freshen it up.”

Neil Harris is likely to shuffle his pack, as he will want to keep his first choice team fresh for the Lions’ league clash with Coventry City on Saturday, August 15.

John Marquis, Sid Nelson, Shane Ferguson and Paris Cowan-Hall could all be in contention for a starting place as The Lions aim to make it through to Round Two for the third consecutive year.

Summer signing Joe Martin and striker Aiden O’Brien (both out with ankle injuries) remain sidelined, while Jimmy Abdou is doubtful with a hamstring injury that ruled him out of the season’s opener.

It will be only the second time the two teams have met, with the only previous encounter coming at Underhill back in 2009 when Jake Hyde and Ismail Yakubu were on target in a 2-0 win for The Bees in the JPT First Round.

The game was also notable for a young Yannick Bolasie, who was playing on the wing for the Bees after securing a loan from his then parent club Plymouth Argyle.
