The Memorial Stadium in Bristol.
There might just be sharply contrasting emotions within the ground.
If Millwall WIN they are guaranteed the precious sixth play-off place.
If Millwall do not win their supporters may still be jubilant or they could be very despondent.
It all depends on the results of two other important League One matches. Southend United, home to Bury and AFC Rochdale, home to Bradford City, are also hoping to remain in the sixth play-off spot.
Win , Lose or Draw at The Memorial Stadium against Bristol Rovers, Millwall are in the prime position and could still be in sixth spot even if they lose the match.
WILL MILLWALL SUPPORTERS WANT TO COME ON THE PITCH?
WILL THE MILLWALL TEAM WANT TO CELEBRATE WITH THEIR SUPPORTERS?
WILL BRISTOL ROVERS PLAYERS COMPLETE A LAP OF HONOUR AT THE END OF THE GAME?
WILL THE BRISTOL ROVERS SUPPORTERS BE RESPECTFUL IF MILLWALL ARE JUBILANT?
Bristol Rovers have increased their stewarding levels and security operations ahead of Millwall’s visit.
The Lions have sold their allocation of 1,279 tickets for the fixture as they aim to guarantee a play-off place.
Bristol Rovers have sold over 11,000 tickets, so this could be a sell-out for the first time this season.
“We will have an additional 30 stewards against Millwall,” the club’s Safety Officer Dave Parker has stated.
“It is an all-ticket match so we will know how many people will be coming to the stadium.”
“There will be police on duty from early in the morning, and this match is a designated police match.”
Bristol Rovers are in contact with Millwall over arrangements for players to greet fans after the final whistle.
It is traditional for players from the home side to do a lap of honour after their last game of the season.
Millwall could have clinched sixth place, and they would want to celebrate with their supporters.
More details about the actual arrangements ought to be provided by the football clubs later this week.
