Ipswich Town vs Millwall
Date: Tuesday, 1 January 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Portman Road Stadium (Ipswich).
Millwall moved three points adrift of the red zone after super important back-to-back wins over Reading and Nottingham Forest at The Den. They will have a nice chance to maintain the winning thread and actually pick up their inaugural victory on the road on Tuesday afternoon against rock-bottomed Ipswich Town at Portman Road Stadium.
The hosts are struggling badly in this term and they need a true miracle to avoid the relegation to League One football next season. They took only 15 points from 25 games so far and are as many as seven shy of Bolton Wanderers in the safe zone. The Tractor Boys head into this off the back of consecutive defeats to Queens Park Rangers (3-0) and Middlesbrough (2-0).
Ipswich Town vs Millwall: Head-to-head
The hosts will rely on the head to head record looking for salvation points here.

However, Millwall clinched a demolishing 3-0 victory when two teams met each other in this term of Championship in late-October at The Den.
Ipswich have previously won three and drew one of four H2H games with the Lions.

Ipswich have the weakest defensive record in the league. They allowed 43 goals in 25 games. They conceded at least a goal in six of last seven home matches in the competition.
