Preview: Promotion to the Premier League remains entirely plausible for both these teams this season, making this is a hugely significant fixture between tenth-placed Millwall and a Fulham side hot on the heels of the automatic promotion spots.

Millwall Preview – Lions’ play-off aspirations at risk of fading?

On a blustery Sunday afternoon in South East London, it was arguable Millwall (10th – W11 D12 L8) struggled far more with the sheer quality of their opponents than the volatile weather. This made some sense, what with said opposition being the league leaders. West Brom were a class act on the day, controlling large swathes of the contest and creating essentially all of the game’s best chances. A 2-0 scoreline flattered Millwall in fairness.

On the back of that loss, Millwall have now taken one of the last nine points although had won three of their four prior league encounters before suffering a dip. The latter an example of what this team is capable of producing. Even more so because all three victories were earned at The Den, where their record since the start of the season has been very solid having lost only three of fifteen Championship matches there so far (W8 D4 L3).

Among those recent victories on home soil was a typically resolute display against probably the division’s most form side, beating Brentford 1-0. A fifth win to nil of the campaign at The Den. So Gary Rowett was correct in his frank assessment of Sunday’s performance, because the statistics do back up his claims that this team can do much better. Now would be a good time to show it, though, facing a Fulham side they have beaten only once in their five previous meetings in the Championship era (W1 D1 L3).


Fulham 1-0 (Correct Score)



Fulham Preview – Win would consolidate automatic promotion claims?

More recently, Fulham (3rd – W16 D7 L8) have discovered one of the best habits of them all – winning by any means necessary. Saturday’s success over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park wasn’t the prettiest, but it was another vital three points in their quest for promotion. A fourth win in the last five league games for Scott Parker’s side, all of which coming via a slender one-goal margin, as The Cottagers moved level on points with second-placed Leeds.

In fact, all of Fulham’s previous six league wins were by a single-goal margin. That also applies to eight of their last nine. Bet365 offer odds of 3/1 on another Fulham Win By One Goal, although scores of 4-0 and 3-0 in their latest two meetings with Millwall – the former at The Den last season – dampen the appeal ever so slightly. Alternatively, another Win To Nil is the same price and boasts legitimate claims.

Not since a 3-3 draw away to struggling Luton on Boxing Day has a goal been conceded away from home. Since then, three consecutive clean sheets on the road after 1-0 wins at Blackburn and Hull sandwiched a 0-0 draw against Charlton. As for who might inspire them on Wednesday, we may need to look no further than Alexsandar Mitrovic. The Serbian extended his impressive goal tally for the season to 20 at the weekend and was on target in a 4-0 victory over Millwall at Craven Cottage back in August.

Betting Summary

Promotion remains a viable goal for both clubs this season. Millwall are five points shy of the play-offs whereas Fulham recently moved level on points with the automatic promotion berths. Therefore a lot is at stake here and, considering how well-organised these sides are and the impressive numbers being posted in the defensive third, a cagey affair is to be expected. Current form, alongside a dominant head-to-head record, means Fulham are justifiable favourites, however.

Millwall Vs Fulham – Key Facts:

  • One point from the last nine on offer for Millwall following Sunday’s 2-0 home reverse against West Brom – only their third of the season at home (W8 D4 L3).
  • Four wins in the last five Championship games from Fulham, with two coming by the way of hard-fought 1-0 scorelines earned away from home (W6 D5 L4).
  • Each of the previous four meetings in league and cup were won by Fulham, while only one of five encounters in the Championship featured both teams among the goals.

Under 2.5 Goals returned a winning bet in four of Millwall’s recent five league encounters and in three of their previous four as hosts. Meanwhile, there hasn’t even been more than a solitary goal scored in four of Fulham’s past five Championship matches, while their latest three away from home produced scorelines of 1-0, 1-0 and 0-0. Moreover, of their five previous league meetings since 2015, only one produced both teams scoring. Therefore goals could be in short supply at The Den on Wednesday.
