Season summary

Former Watford, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Walsall manager Colin Lee replaced Steve Claridge as manager of Millwall, but lasted only five months in charge.[1] On 21 December, with the club bottom of the Championship, he became the club's director of football (he would leave the club altogether in February) and was replaced as manager by 32-year-old player Dave Tuttle, who had no previous experience in management, on a short-term contract until the end of the season.[2] Millwall experienced a very difficult season and their relegation to League One was confirmed on 17 April with a 20 loss against Southampton.[3] Tuttle resigned three days later. Goalkeeping coach Tony Burns and former Millwall manager Alan McLeary took charge for the two remaining games of the season.[4]
