Millwall against Leeds is  rarely dull and this one is likely to be no different. The visitors could go top with a win but their hosts will almost certainly have something to say about that.

Millwall Preview – Can Millwall feed off rivalry and get what would be a first win in eight games?

Neil Harris left his role as Millwall manager on Friday, bringing an end to over four years in charge of the club. With the Lions currently on a seven game run without a win in the league, Harris felt he had taken them as far as he could and it leaves Adam Barrett in caretaker charge for what is sure to be a huge challenge in the shape of Leeds. The timing of Harris’ departure is somewhat of a surprise but his reasoning is not going to come as much of a shock. Barrett now has to oversee this game before the next international break where the club can then assess their options for a more permanent appointment.

It had been a very strong start to the season under Harris with Millwall taking seven points from their first three matches. Home wins over Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday either side of a draw away to West Brom would have had their supporters dreaming of what was ahead. It’s all been downhill since then though with three defeats and four draws. Harris has left Millwall in 18th spot with 11 points – five above the relegation zone and seven adrift of the playoffs. It’s hardly a catastrophic position but it’s clearly one Harris felt he wasn’t capable of turning around.

Leeds United Preview – Will Leeds make it a very good few days and continue their excellent away from with another win?

Having lost away to Charlton last weekend the next two games were always going to be important for Leeds. The top of the table is so tight at the moment that any slip means you can easily drop a few places which was the case for Marcelo Bielsa’s men. It meant Tuesday’s game at home to West Brom was an even bigger game now that the Baggies had went above them. An own goal – ironically enough from their former player Kyle Bartley – was the difference between the teams and handed Bielsa’s men all three points. West Brom are likely to be one of their rivals for automatic promotion so psychologically it’s a big win. In the context of the league it will only be crucial should they follow it up here.

This will be Leeds’ sixth away game of the season and it’s been on their travels where they have been best. The loss to Charlton is their only blot so far having defeating Wigan, Stoke, Barnsley and Bristol City before then. Indeed, the goal they conceded last week was the first they have shipped on the road since the opening day. Bielsa will be hoping tomorrow’s visit to London is a much happier one.


Key-Facts – Millwall v Leeds United

  • Neil Harris brought an end to over four years in charge of Millwall on Friday having failed to win any of their last seven games

  • Eight of both team’s 10 games this season have went under 2.5 goals

Millwall v Leeds United Betting Advice

It’s always a very competitive affair this and one the supporters relish as much as the players. Leeds know how difficult a venue this is having not won on any of their last six visits. Their last victory came back in 2012 and have suffered four defeats since then. The visitors have also failed to score in those four defeats. The Millwall players will still be coming to terms with their manager leaving but they will be galvanised by this game.

If Millwall are to get a result they will have to overcome what is the best defence in the Championship. Leeds have conceded only five goals all season and two of those have come away from home. Eight of Millwall’s ten games have went under 2.5 goals this season which is the same number of Leeds’ games have resulted in similar. It looks like being another very tight game on Saturday.
