Millwall vs Barnsley Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game features two sides who were expected to struggle this season but the hosts are going well. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Millwall continued their recent good run of form with a 2-1 victory in midweek that saw them see off Reading thanks to two late goals from George Saville. The result was probably harsh on the Royals who saw more of the ball and created the better chances. Barnsley continued their four-game run without a win as they were held 1-1 at home to QPR in midweek. They took the lead in the 20th minute on were on course for three points but conceded an equalizer in the 87th minute. The last meeting between the two at the Den came in August 2015 and it was the Yorkshire side who won that one 3-2. The Tykes have in fact won each of the last four meetings between the duo.

Betting Tips and Predictions

I think Millwall will win the game but that price is far too short to be backed. If you take the short-term form then for sure the Lions are deserved favourites but the price suggests they are a top eight side and not a team who at best are targeting a top-half finish. George Saville continues to go off at a big price to score even though he has four home goals this season and netted twice in midweek. He looks worth a play in the first goalscorer markets with each-way options on him to score at any time. The last four home goals the London side have netted have come in the last 20 minutes so it might be worth backing that the second-half is their highest scoring 45 minutes.

Millwall Preview

The Lions were expected to struggle this season but so far have defied the critics and sit comfortably in mid-table with 13 points. It is four games unbeaten in the league with eight points from these. At home, they have won each of their last three (defeating Reading, Norwich and Leeds) netting seven times in the process and conceding just one. 11 of the 13 goals they have scored this season have come at their own ground. George Saville is their leading league scorer with four goals all of which have come in home fixtures. In just two of their ten Championship matches this season have they gone to the break ahead.

Millwall Team News

They have no registered injuries or suspensions.

Barnsley Preview

The Tykes are without a win in four taking just two points from these fixtures which is why they have dropped down to 21st. Four of their next six fixtures though are against sides around about them in the bottom eight and they need to pick up points in those games. On the road, they have grabbed just one point from four matches losing the first two and the most recent one. They have netted in three of these four but they have not scored more than once in the same game. They need someone to step up and gets the goals as none of their players have netted more than twice in the league this season. 60% of their goals have come in the first-half with 40% of them in the opening thirty minutes.

Barnsley Team News

Angus MacDonald will miss the game through suspension.
