The New Den
JUDGEMENT DAY #1: The rules are simple. If Leeds United win, they are up. If Leeds draw or lose, either Millwall or Swindon can go up if they win. If all 3 fail to win then it gives Charlton Athletic a chance too.
Talking to BBC Radio Wiltshire, Danny Wilson compared this season to last years debacle '...you've just got to enjoy it. I'd certainly rather be in our position than fighting against relegation.'
Millwall's former Stevenage Borough forward Steve Morison could miss out with a hamstring injury. Swindon Town flop Gary Alexander could deputise.
Millwall side that lost 2-0 at Tranmere last week:
XI: Forde, Robinson, Smith, Frampton, Barron, D. Ward, Trotter, Abdou, Hackett, Harris, Morison.
Subs: Grabban, Sullivan, Alexander, Obika, Grimes, Fuseini, Laird.
He was involved in an on pitch bust-up with Town's Kevin Amankwaah at the County Ground this season when several allegations were made.
The Millwall legend will be very much up for this fixture.
Alan O'Brien is back in the fold after returning from a long term on the sidelines.
Kurt Hammonds has sat out of the whole season thus far and this shall continue tomorrow.
Vincent Pericard is likely to miss out but will be back for the Play-Offs (if not promoted automatically).
Other than that, Danny Wilson is operating with a reasonably fit side.
Town side that beat Brentford 3-2 last week:
XI: Lucas, Darby, Sheehan, Lescinel, Greer, Easton, McGovern, Douglas, Ward, Nouble, Paynter.
Subs: Austin, Smith, O'Brien, Timlin, Cuthbert, Amankwaah, Ferry.
Town's deadly duo need to get their lucky goalscoring boots on as the trip to The New Den will not be easy.
For Swindon to have any remote chance of promotion then they need these two to convert any chance given to them.

Overall Millwall have the edge of Swindon historically. In the 141 meetings between the two clubs in all competitions, Town have won 46, drawn 35 and lost 60.
PLAYED FOR BOTH CLUBS:
Millwall currently have several former Robins on their books. Ashley Grimes had a brief loan spell at Swindon in 2007. Jack Smith was one of Town's better players last season but was still released by Danny Wilson after playing over 100 times for Swindon. Gary Alexander had an unsuccessful spell at Swindon a decade ago.
Other former players include Town legend Harry Morris, former favourites Sam Parkin and David Mitchell and current Robins players Phil Smith (who started his career at The New Den) and Vincent Pericard
Mr. K. Stroud (Hampshire)
He's officiated in two Town fixtures this season - the 1-1 draw at Exeter City and the 3-1 win over Yeovil Town. His one and only Millwall fixture during this campaign was their 2-0 loss at Gillingham.
Mr. Stroud has sent-off 10 players this season.
