Ipswich Town vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Easter Monday (15:00) fixture features two sides in different halves of the Championship.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Ipswich suffered a third straight defeat on Saturday afternoon as they went down to a 1-0 road loss at Birmingham.  It means it is now four without a goal for Town who also confirmed Mick McCarthy will no longer be in charge next season.

Millwall kept alive their remarkable run to the play-offs by winning their fourth straight last time out defeating Nottingham Forest 2-0.  The Lions took a first minute lead through Sean Williams and then wrapped up the points in the 33rd minute through Lee Gregory.

The reverse fixture came in mid-August was a thriller at the Den with the Tractor Boys emerging as 4-3 victors.  Martyn Waghorn grabbed a brace and Joe Garner and Jordan Spence netted one each while Jed Wallace, Aiden O’Brien and Tom Elliott converted for the Lions.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Millwall are strong favourites to win the game and while I could not put anyone off backing them for me the prices are a fair reflection of the chances on them winning the game so I would look elsewhere for the value.

In three of their last four fixtures the Lions have bagged in the first few minutes and this could be an angle into the game.  The time of their first team goal is set at 54:00 which should be taken while take the game to have over 0.5 goals in the first ten minutes.

Ipswich Town Preview

The Tractor Boys have decided to not renew the contract of Mick McCarthy at the end of the season so they are not a side with much to play for as they are stuck firmly in the middle third.  They have now lost each of their last three and taken just one point from four.

At Portman Road, they have not won any of their last five losing three and drawing two of these.  They have failed to find the back of the net in each of their last five at their own ground and just twice in their last eight in front of their own fans.

Just two of the last 13 Ipswich league fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals with five of their last going under 1.5 goals.  They have scored a combined total of 15 from their last seven meetings with Millwall.

 

Ipswich Town Team News

Joe Garner (knee) and Dominic Iorfa (thigh) are rated doubtful. Tom Adeyemi, Teddy Bishop (both hamstring) and Dean Gerken (hip) are long-term absentees.  David McGoldrick (groin), Emyr Huws and Andre Dozzell (both knee) are unlikely to feature again this season.

 

Millwall Preview

Four straight victories and 11 without defeat has propelled the Lions from the edges of the relegation zone to just outside the play-offs.  Six of the seven matches that they have remaining are against sides in the top 14.

Away from the Den, they are on fire winning each of their last six which includes victories at Leeds and Reading.  The London outfit have kept clean sheets in four of their last five on their travels.

Each of the last three Millwall have played in the Championship and nine of the last 11 have gone under 2.5 goals.  In three of their last four the Lions have netted in the opening ten minutes.

 

Millwall Team News

Ben Thompson (ankle) is a doubt while Byron Webster (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
