Sheffield United vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday lunchtime (13:00) fixture features two sides in need of points in the race to make the end of season play-offs.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Sheffield United put to an end a four-game winless run on Tuesday night as they defeated Middlesbrough 2-1 at Bramall Lane.  Lee Evans netted a first-half brace and they held off the ten-men of Boro.

Millwall stretched their unbeaten record to 16 and broke into the top-six with a 2-0 victory at Bolton in midweek.  Ben Marshall scored one and made one for Tom Elliott as they picked up a deserved three points.

The reverse fixture came early in December and Lee Gregory, Mahlon Romero and Jake Cooper got the goals for the Lions in a 3-1 victory.  David Brooks got the goal for the Blades who have won just one of the last six meetings between the pair.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

This looks a hard game to predict as Sheffield United are in good form at home while Millwall are in great form at all venues.  If pushed I would lean towards a draw though I think better value can be had elsewhere.

The Lions have netted at least two goals in six of their last seven while the Blades have only failed to net in one of their last six at home.  Over 2.5 goals makes sense here as does a small play on over 3.5 goals in a game both teams will be looking to win.

Sheffield United Preview

The Blades have lost just one of their last seven matches but with other teams around them winning the fact they have drawn four of these is keeping them out of the top six.  They are three points behind their opponents here with four games remaining.

At Bramall Lane, they are unbeaten in their last six and have lost just five times in front of their own fans this season.  Only three sides (Fulham, Cardiff, Middlesbrough) have a better home defence than them in the division.

Each of the last four Sheffield United have played have seen both teams find the back of the net.  The Yorkshire outfit would be as high as fifth place if the league was decided on the scores at half-time.

 

Sheffield United Team News

Paul Coutts (broken leg) is out for the season while Richard Stearman (hamstring) is a doubt.

Jamal Blackman is available for selection following the completion of a suspension.

 

Millwall Preview

The Lions have won six of their last seven and gone 16 unbeaten in the Championship to move into the top six.  They now face a battle to stay there with their four remaining matches coming against top nine sides.

Away from the Den, they have won seven and drawn one of their last eight with January 1st the last time they lost on the road.  Only three sides (Wolves, Derby and Cardiff) have a better road defensive record than the London outfit.

In each of their last five and six of their last seven have Millwall scored at least two league goals.  The Lions have been behind just five times going into the interval in their road fixtures.

 

Millwall Team News

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