All-time record v the Gills:

Matches: 87
Gills wins: 24
Draws: 19
Millwall wins: 44Remember me? Darren Byfield. Memories won't have to be stretched too far back, with Byfield having left Priestfield after a long drawn out contract saga this summer. Scored 20 goals in two seasons in Kent and will now try his luck at the Den, where he once scored four times in one game for Rotherham. Tricky in possession, his spell at Priestfield was probably a slight disappointment to most Gills fans. Gavin Grant has also moved to the Den this summer after being released by manager Ronnie Jepson. Man to watch: Marvin Williams. The arrival of Byfield may see his chances restricted, but Williams, 18, emerged as a star of the future as the Lions were relegated from the Championship last season. If he is given the chances, he could score plenty of goals.2006/07 prospects: Millwall have brought in a number of players this summer and that strengthening will mean they are better equipped than the other relegated sides. A promotion push could well be on the cards, but with high salaries dished out to these new signings, if new boss Nigel Spackman makes a slow start, he could soon find pressure building.
