The fixture is the joint-first match of the 2017-18 Championship season, being played simultaneously alongside Sunderland v Derby County.

Manager Mark Warburton – who took over the helm in March – will be looking to steady the Forest ship after years of steady decline.

A top-half finish in the Championship next season will represent progress, as Forest have brought in plenty of firepower in this transfer window.

They have signed in 22-year-old ex-Hibs striker Jason Cummings, and exciting forward Barrie McKay, who impressed in pre-season for The Reds.

Meanwhile Millwall boss Neil Harris won’t be able to rest on his laurels after last season’s success.

The Lions will hope their infamous hostile atmosphere at The Den can give them the edge at home.
