Millwall Prediction

Following last season’s successful campaign which saw Millwall finish in a creditable 8th place in the Championship and narrowly missing out on the play-offs by just three points, there was expectation of going a step further this time around by the London club.

However, football rarely pans out that way and instead, Neil Harris’s side are fighting against relegation this season as they sit two league positions and four points above third from bottom club, Reading ahead of this important fixture against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

Millwall have now gone four matches without a win as they’ve suffered defeats to Blackburn Rovers and Swansea City, but The Lions have picked up valuable points in draws with Middlesbrough and Rotherham United too.

Millwall’s best chances of Championship survival seem to hinge on their form at the New Den where they’ve posted a record of 6-5-4 20/18 to date, and have lost just once in their last five matches, picking up recent wins against Reading and Nottingham Forest.

Midfielders Williams and Wallace (4 goals apiece) and forward Gregory (7 goals) are the main goal threats for the hosts.

 

Key-Facts – Millwall v Sheffield Wednesday

  • Millwall have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches at the New Den
  • Sheffield Wednesday have kept just 3 clean sheets on the road
  • Millwall won the last encounter at the New Den 2-1

 

Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Sheffield Wednesday occupy 16th place in the Championship and new manager, Steve Bruce, has been tasked with the job of lifting The Owls into a more respectable league position, preferably top half at the very least after years of under-performing.

The visitors come into this clash with a three match unbeaten run that includes wins against Wigan Athletic (home) and Ipswich Town (away) along with Saturday’s frustrating point against Reading in a 0-0 draw.

Results away from home have been mixed in recent weeks as The Owls have recorded wins at Middlesbrough and the aforementioned Ipswich Town but have also fallen to defeats at Swansea City and Hull City amidst an overall away record that stands at a below-par 5-2-8 16/26.

Sheffield Wednesday have kept just three clean sheets on their travels to date and this could well play into Millwall’s hands as the hosts look to press for all three points here this evening.

Betting Tips Verdict

Millwall need to make the most of each and every home game from now until the end of the season as they look to avoid the drop down to League One. Sheffield Wednesday are still getting used to a new manager’s approach, so using the handicap on the hosts here looks the best option.
