Burton Albion vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon features two sides who are expected to struggle this season but only the home team are involved in the relegation battle. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Burton picked up a crucial three points in midweek beating Barnsley 2-1 at Oakwell. Albion took an early lead through Jamie Allen and then extended it through impressive Jacob Davenport before conceding 15 minutes from time and holding firm to take the victory. Millwall stretched their unbeaten Championship run to seven matches as they beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 on Tuesday night. They were one down just before half-time but after the interval a goal each from Lee Gregory and Steve Morison secured the victory. The reverse fixture came early in November and the Brewers won that one on the road 1-0 thanks to a Marvin Sordell goal. The game was goalless but turned on the 58th minute dismissal of Jed Wallace.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Millwall are in good form here and are likely to be a popular bet but a few things put me off backing them. Firstly, the Brewers are playing decent themselves and secondly, at some point the Lions will reflect on what their motivation is. Perhaps Neil Harris can keep them going but the play-offs seem beyond them while relegation is no longer a risk so it would not shock me if their form slide off a little. One bet I think that makes a lot of sense is backing the game to be level at half-time as these two sides are the league leaders in this category with a combined 37 from 66 games played combined. Lee Gregory is in good form with four goals in his last six league apperances and two in his last three on the road and he looks worth a goalscorer play here with my preference being in the to score any time market.

Burton Albion Preview

The Brewers are now unbeaten in three and have taken five points from these matches a run that has put them 22nd. They are level on points with Hull and now have three of their next four at home. At the Pirelli Stadium, they have struggled taking just nine of their 29 points in front of their own fans. They have conceded eight more goals (33) at their own ground than any other side in the division. 18 of the 33 Burton have played this season have been level going into the interval with only their opponents Millwall producing more. Just 24 of the 59 goals they have conceded have come before the interval.

Burton Albion Team News

John Brayford, Tom Flanagan and Ben Turner (all calf injuries) are doubts while Willie Miller (knee) is a long-term absentee for the Brewers.

Millwall Preview

The Lions are on a great run of form that has seen them climb to the middle reaches of the table after going seven unbeaten. They have a nice run of matches now with just one of their last seven against a side in the top ten. Away from the Den, they have won three straight picking up victories at Leeds, Birmingham and Reading. Eight of the 18 road goals the London outfit have netted in the league this season have come from their last four fixtures. Lee Gregory is in a good run of goalscoring form having four times in his last six league appearances. Millwall are the half-time draw specialists with 19 of their 33 all-square going into the break.

Byron Webster (knee) and Aiden O’Brien (ankle) are long-term absentees
