Millwall vs Bolton
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: The Den, London.
Two teams from the bottom tier of the table take on each other at the Den to complete their 18th round responsibilities in the second division of English Football. Millwall hosts Bolton this Saturday at 15.00 local time.
Bolton suffered a home defeat last matchday against Swansea. The result was expected, considering the standings of both teams in the league table. Bolton will be content that they were able to limit the damage to just a one-goal loss. The final scoreline read 0-1. The sole goal was scored by McKay.
Millwall took part in arguably the best match of the Championship season last weekend, against the league-toppers Norwich at their home. Elliot scored the first goal of the match and put Millwall ahead by one. The score remained the same till half time.
In the second half, Pukki pulled back one and equalized the score. Eight minutes later, he missed a penalty and the chance for his team to go in front.
But his team did go in front eventually, in the 79th minute. But the lead was shortlived. Millwall equalized two minutes later. And in another two minutes, they added one more and took the score to 2-3.
Everyone expected Millwall to despatch the toppers with a loss. With just seven minutes remaining in the game, it was a reasonable expectation too. But Norwich really did show the world, why they are considered the contenders to win the competition this season.
In the second and seventh minutes of the injury time, they added two more goals, and took the score to 4-3, and closed out the match, to eruptions from the crowd. Pukki scored the winner in the 97th minute and redeemed himself for missing the spot kick earlier.

Millwall vs Bolton Prediction
The London team are the overwhelming favorites for this match. They gave the league toppers a run for their money last weekend, on the road. Millwall had led the match until the 92nd minute, before conceding the equalizer.
The adrenaline from that match will still be playing a factor in their match against Bolton. They will also want to make amends for the missed opportunity to register three points.
Millwall is on a run of three wins in a row at home and will want to carry on with the streak. While, Bolton is at the opposite end of the spectrum, with their last six away matches consecutively failing to get a win.
The visitors have registered a meager one win in their last 12 attempts and is currently on a very bad form. The disadvantage of having to play against the in-form Millwall, on the road too, will demotivate them further.
Milwall will win the match as well both the halves.
