Millwall Preview – Will the Lions make it back-to-back wins?

With the pressure starting to mount on Gary Rowett, Millwall picked up a priceless three points in midweek. The Lions were certainly the underdogs at Ashton Gate, but Tom Bradshaw’s 18th-minute goal sent them on their way to a vital victory. Mason Bennett doubled the Londoners’ advantage deep in the second half.

Prior to the win in Bristol, Millwall had gone ten games without victory. After a 2-0 win at Preston North End in October, the London side went on to draw six and lose four of their following ten.

(odds taken 0635 GMT, Friday 18 December)

The Den is usually a tough place to visit, but Millwall have not won at home since October. The 2-0 victory over Luton Town remains their only league success of the campaign. Rowett’s boys will be desperate for maximum points on home turf this Saturday.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Reds to leave London with a point?

Like Millwall, Nottingham Forest also went into their midweek match in poor form. The Reds had failed to win any of their previous seven in the Championship, losing six and drawing one.

However, Chris Hughton’s troops secured a precious three points over fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night. Yuri Ribeiro opened the scoring after just four minutes, with Lewis Grabban making sure of the points with three minutes to go.

Nottingham Forest have been in woeful form away from home. Hughton started life at Forest with an excellent 1-0 win at Blackburn Rovers and 1-1 draw at Luton, but the Reds have gone on to lose each of their last five on the road. Can the East Midlands club seal a rare victory on their travels this weekend?
