Millwall vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) Championship fixture features two sides who still need a few wins to be certain of not getting dragged into the relegation battle. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Millwall stretched their unbeaten league run to six games as they picked up a useful road win at Birmingham. A 77th minute Fred Onyedinma strike proved to be the difference between the two sides in a game they deserved to win. Sheffield Wednesday were in FA Cup action last time out and they managed to hold Premier League Swansea to a goalless draw and secure a replay in Wales. In the league, they played on Tuesday 13th where they defeated Derby 2-0 thanks to a brace from Lucas Joao. The reverse fixture came at the end of October (31st) in Yorkshire and the home side one that one 2-1. Adam Reach and Jordan Rhodes netted for Wednesday while Tom Elliott scored for the Lions who also had Jake Cooper dismissed towards the end.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Millwall are unlikely to lose this game given their strong home form though whether they win the match or draw it is a concern. At the prices and with the risk of it ending all-square I would recommend looking elsewhere for the bets. The last four Wednesday road games in all competitions have been goalless while all bar one of the last five Lions have matches has been level at half-time and this looks the way in to the fixture. Take the game to be drawn at half-time and for the correct half-time scoreline to be 0-0.

Millwall Preview

The Lions are unbeaten in their last six and have lost just one of their last nine Championship fixtures. The run has been good enough to move them into 14th in the table on 42 points and with 14 points between them and relegation they look to have few worries over going back to League One. At the Den, they have lost none of their last eight though four of their last five have finished all-square. The London outfit have lost just three games in front of their own fans this season. None of the last four Millwall have played and just one of their last six have seen the game go under 2.5 goals. Lee Gregory has seven league goals for the season and three in his last five.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

The Owls have lost just one of their last six in the league but four of these have finished all-square. With four of their next six against teams in the top-half this is one of the games they will have marked as a chance to pick up three much needed points. Away from Hillsborough, they are without a victory in their last four those three have been drawn. They have managed just one road goal in their last four and five in their last seven fixtures. Just one of the last eight Sheffield Wednesday have played in the league have gone over 2.5 goals. Lucas Joao has five league goals this season with three of these coming in the last three.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Tom Lees (groin) and Joost van Aken (hip) are doubts while Gary Hooper (hip), Kieran Westwood (groin), Steven Fletcher, Sam Hutchinson (both knee), Barry Bannan (groin) and Fernando Forestieri (knee) are long-term absentees.
