Millwall vs Sheffield United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides who were promoted from League One last season but are having different seasons. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Millwall continued their recent struggles as they suffered a 1-0 home loss to Fulham last time out. The Lions can have few complaints about the result as their London rivals were dominant in possession and chances created. Sheffield United continued their mini stutter with a 1-1 draw at home to Birmingham on Saturday evening. They needed a 71st minute goal from Leon Clarke to secure a point that was the minimum their performance deserved. These two sides met in League One last season with the home side winning both games with it ending 2-1 at the Den and 2-0 at Bramall Lane. The London side have won three of the last four between the pair.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given that Sheffield United have won five of nine on the road this season including at sides like Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday they must be backed at these odds against a Millwall side who have lost to Burton and Barnsley at their own ground lately. It is true they have stuttered lately but they have too much firepower at their disposal which is more than can be said about the Lions. If it is not broken then don’t try and fix it so have another anytime goalscorer play on Leon Clarke who did the business again at the weekend and now has netted nine in the last four games.

Millwall Preview

It is now six without a victory for the Lions though three of these matches have ended in a draw. They are about to embark on a nightmare run of fixtures which sees each of their next five against a team currently in the top eight. At the Den, they have two defeats and one draw and just one victory from their last four despite all these coming against sides in the bottom eight. These games have not been entertaining with a total of just three scored from their last three with Millwall blanking in their last two. The 19 goals the London outfit have scored this season has them as just the 20th highest ranked attack in the division. Seven of the last nine goals scored in their ties have come in the opening half.

Millwall Team News

Shaun Williams (knee) and Byron Webster (cruciate) continue to be absent.

Sheffield United Preview

It is now just one point from their last two and two victories from their last five fixtures for a side who are starting to find things tougher in the Championship. They are still among the play-off places but face three of their next four on the road. Away from Bramall Lane, they have looked strong with four victories from their last seven including victories at Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday. Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals has happened in each of their last four on the road. The Blades are the joint second highest scorers in the division though at the other end have gone seven without a clean-sheet. Leon Clarke is in impressive goalscoring form having netted nine times in his last four appearances.

Sheffield United Team News

Paul Coutts is out for the season after breaking his leg while Ched Evans (ankle), Kieron Freeman (dislocated kneecap) are doubts. George Baldock is available for selection following a hamstring injury.
