Swansea City Prediction

Swansea City’s five match unbeaten run in the Championship came to an abrupt end last weekend when they suffered a 2-0 defeat away at Bristol City, but they return to Liberty Stadium where they’ve lost just once in their last five matches.

The hosts have recently recorded wins against Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United in recent weeks along with gaining points in draws with Wigan Athletic and Birmingham City, so Graham Potter’s side will be confident they can return to winning ways on home turf on Saturday afternoon.

A home record of 6-4-5 23/20 doesn’t look too impressive but with just one loss from these last five matches should mean the hosts get something out of this clash. In addition, Swansea City possess their leading goalscorer McBurnie (13 goals) up front, and he’s enjoying an impressive goalscoring period which has seen him score 7 goals in his last 5 appearances.

 

Key-Facts – Swansea City v Millwall

  • Swansea City have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches at home
  • Millwall have kept just 1 clean sheet away from home
  • Swansea possess striker McBurnie who has scored 7 goals in last 5 matches

 

Millwall Prediction

Although Millwall are precariously placed just above the relegation zone, the visitors hold a useful five point cushion over third from bottom club Reading thanks to a solid recent run of matches which has seen The Lions suffer just one defeat from their last six matches overall in the Championship.

That loss came in a 2-0 defeat at home to Blackburn Rovers, but recent wins against Reading, Nottingham Forest and Ipswich Town have kept the visitors away from immediate danger of a relegation battle.

However, switch to results away from home and you’ll note that Millwall have gained just one away win all season amidst a poor record of 1-4-9 14/26 with their one success on the road being a 3-2 win at bottom club Ipswich Town.

Millwall have kept just one clean sheet on the road all season and that was in their first away match of the new term at Blackburn Rovers in a 0-0 stalemate, but their leaky defence could come under very close scrutiny by McBurnie in this encounter.

Betting Tips Verdict

Swansea have been okay but Millwall have been poor away from home so the hosts should get something from this match.
