Millwall Preview – Will the Lions extend unbeaten run?

Draws were Millwall’s Achilles heel last season, as Gary Rowett’s troops drew 17 times, which was a league high. They have already had four stalemates this term, drawing with Queens Park Rangers, Blackburn Rovers, West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City.

Millwall are unbeaten in four in all competitions, though, beating Cambridge United in the cup and Blackpool in the league and drawing with West Brom and Swansea. They will no doubt be tough to beat this season, with only Fulham and Cardiff City getting the better of them so far.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1620 GMT, Friday 17 September)

After battling to two draws away from home, Millwall will be looking for a second successive home victory on Saturday. The Lions are the favourites at 31/20.

Coventry City Preview – Can the Sky Blues make it three wins in a row?

As we touched on, Coventry City have been the Championship’s surprise package so far. The feel-good factor is certainly back in the Sky Blue half of the West Midlands, as the club are back at the Coventry Building Society Arena, and making the most of it.

They have enjoyed being home, already winning four out of four in the Championship on their own patch. In midweek, Coventry beat Mick McCarthy’s Cardiff thanks to a Viktor Gyokeres goal, which lifted them into fourth.
