Stoke City – Potters eyeing up rare feat?

Goals on Saturday from Nick Powell and Steven Fletcher, the club’s leading marksmen with twelve and nine goals respectively, earned Stoke (W13 D13 L12) their first away win in the Championship since early December as Michael O’Neill’s men condemned Bristol City to a seventh successive home defeat with a 2-0 scoreline at Ashton Gate. It was a win that keeps alive the Potters’ faint hopes of making the play-offs.

Despite the welcome addition of three points last time, Stoke still require a further eight to make up the necessary ground on the top six. They’ll approach this Easter Monday fixture in confident mood, though. Victory at home to Derby before the international break means the Potters are seeking to win three consecutive league games for the first time since October 2016 while still in the Premier League.

The Potters are now unbeaten in three after also securing a creditable 0-0 draw at previously in-form Cardiff. O’Neill’s side had lost four out of five prior to this, so will be keen to see his players maintain this hard-earned momentum. Being back at the Brittania certainly helps: only Swansea, who came from behind to win 2-1, of the last five visitors to Staffordshire prevented Stoke from collecting maximum points.


Stoke Win To Nil



Millwall – Lions unconvincing in latest win?

Courtesy of Jed Wallace’s second-half strike, Millwall (W12 D16 L10) made it three 1-0 wins in four Championship matches, and second in as many games, to boost their hopes of making the end of season play-offs. The Bermondsey outfit were, however, indebted to goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski for this latest win, the one-time Polish international saving a late penalty to deny ten-man Rotherham a point at The Den.

That latest triumph still leaves Gary Rowett’s side, who have stumbled on some useful form with four wins from the last six (L2), eight points shy of the top six with seven games remaining. One of which is this awkward looking trip to Staffordshire to tackle Stoke, who have amassed the same number of points and appear to boast the upper hand after losing just one of the pair’s past twelve competitive encounters.

Millwall haven’t won here, meanwhile, since November 2002, scoring only once in six subsequent visits to Brittania Stadium (now referred to as Bet365 Stadium). Yet it is a must win game in the context of their season. However, the surrender of a 2-0 lead at Loftus Park in their most recent away outing, eventually losing 3-2 to QPR, means they have won only one of the last four away from home (D1 L2).

Stoke Vs Millwall Betting Advice

Something has to give on Monday with both these sides coming into this top-half clash having won their past two games. It is Stoke, though, who begin as favourites largely on account of home advantage, which has been critical in previous meetings. Stoke are unbeaten in six as the home side in this fixture with four wins, though would have to settle for a share of the spoils last season after a goalless stalemate.


Stoke Vs Millwall – Key Facts:

  • Millwall don’t tend to enjoy their meetings with Stoke, the latter losing only one of the last 12 (W6 D5 L1) and none of the last six as hosts (W4 D2).
  • Stoke have been in impressive form at their Bet365 stadium lately, registering wins in four of the last five (L1) Championship matches there. All of these were ‘to nil’.
  • Millwall have picked up marginally more wins on their travels this season (7 vs 6) but only one across their last four such matches (D1 L2).


At the odds, I believe the hosts are the play. Stoke invariably perform when Millwall come to town, that we know, but they also boast wins in four of the last five Championship matches here at the Brittania Stadium. All four were to nil – third place Swansea the only side to breach them in this period – having recorded their third consecutive shutout last time out with a 2-0 victory away to Bristol City.
