Nicole Carroll: A one woman mission to make a name in football

Keep the passion on the pitch! Leeds United/Millwall preview

In a tie that police have severe headaches over, Monday nights big clash is between Leeds United and Millwall.

There is a strong history of problems between the two clubs, and last season when they faced one another in the semi finals, away fans were limited to a 1000 supporters to try and stop those going who are there purely to cause trouble.

The clash is vital for both clubs. A win for Millwall puts them within touching distance of the automatic promotion spots, whilst Leeds will be looking to pull away from those below them and sealing a return to the Championship without the need for the heartbreak of the playoffs.

Elland road will be a pressure cooker of emotion, of those playing on the pitch, and the highly charged atmosphere between the opposing fans. Lets hope the fans can control themselves, and let the night be about the football, rather than off the field matters.
