West Ham United’s London Stadium has had its problems with crowd trouble this season, and that might well be taken to a new level if Millwall visit the ground next term.
The bitter rivals have not actually locked horns since a Championship clash in February 2012, which West Ham won 2-1 on home soil.
There is a real possibility that the two teams could meet next season, however, with Millwall making serious strides in the Championship in recent months.
Neil Harris’ side beat Bolton Wanderers 2-0 on Tuesday night to move into sixth position in the table, and they are very much one of the form teams in the Championship as we approach the final weeks of the 2017-18 campaign.
Next up for Millwall is a trip to Sheffield United this weekend, before hosting high-flying Fulham for what promises to be a huge match on April 20.
The West Ham fans have been reacting to a possible meeting with their great rivals next season, and it seems that a number want it to happen.
