Millwall vs Ipswich Town Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in the bottom-half of the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Millwall picked up their second successive home victory with a 2-1 defeat of Wigan on Tuesday evening. They had a Shaun Williams penalty and a Steve Morison effort to thank for getting them a deserved three points.

Ipswich continued their woes going down to their third defeat in the last four losing 2-0 away at Leeds. It means the end of the road for Paul Hurst who has seen an overhaul in the squad but was not given time to see the project through.

The two meetings between these sides last season saw the Suffolk outfit take four points with a 2-2 draw at Portman Road and a 4-3 success at the Den. They are in fact unbeaten in the last four head-to-heads.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Millwall should win this game but the prices do not offer any kind of value while the home side are the better outfit they still have won just three of seven at home this season and I would be cautious taking on a team who have just lost a manager.  

The Tractor Boys have conceded a combined six times in the opening 25 minutes of their last four so backing the Lions to net before 44:00 appeals. It might also then make sense to have a small play on the hosts highest scoring half to be the opening one.

Millwall Preview

The Lions have taken seven points from their last four which has lifted them out of the bottom three but they still sit in 20th. Neil Harris is a club legend as a player and manager and nobody in the board will be pulling the panic cord just yet especially as they are showing signs of life.

At the Den, they have won the last two matches having managed to win just one of the previous five. The London outfit have scored exactly two goals in each of their three previous at their own ground.

Nine of the 14 Millwall league games have gone over 2.5 goals with just two going under 1.5 goals. Each of their last five have gone over 2.5 goals and seen both teams find the back of the net.

 

Millwall Team News

They have no injuries or suspensions ahead of this fixture.

Ipswich Town Preview

The Tractor Boys sit bottom of the table with just nine points and one victory from the season. Paul Hurst was tasked with turning the club around but he was sacked Thursday night with Paul Lambert favourite to take over.

Away from Portman Road, they have lost just one of their last three though five of their seven this season. They have shipped over 1.5 goals to their opponents in each of the last six on the road.

Ten of the 14 Ipswich have played in the league have gone under 2.5 goals though eight have produced exactly two goals. Just one of their last four and three of their last eight have seen both teams net.

 

Ipswich Town Team News

Myles Kenlock (hamstring) is a doubt while Ellis Harrison (ankle), Jon Walters (Achilles), Emyr Huws (knee) and Teddy Bishop (also hamstring) are long-term absentees.
