Millwall vs Scunthorpe United
League 1 Playoff
Date: 4th May 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: The Den.
Shaun Hutchinson is probably the most favourite man at The Den at the moment as he was the one who bagged the match-winner five minutes from time in the game with Bristol Rovers at the weekend as Memorial Stadium.
His goal ended the drama and allowed the Lions to enter the playoffs where they will have a very tough task to go past the in-form Scunthorpe United.
The Lions were only five points away from not making it to the playoffs, but the destiny wanted them there and we’d not be surprised to see them going all the way and earning the promotion at the end.
However, Neil Harris will have a lot to improve if he wants to go past Scunthorpe because his team showed plenty of holes at the back having conceded three goals in each of their last two games with Oxford United and Bristol Rovers.
The Iron have had a very entertaining campaign in this term of League One. Scunthorpe held the very top of the standings for most part of the season, but the drop in form was realistically only a matter of time.
However, Graham Alexander managed to boost up his team’s confidence and find the winning formula since the Iron ended the regular season with five wins on the trot.
Millwall vs Scunthorpe United: Head to head
Neil Harris will try and copy the performance his team showed in the previous meeting with Scunthorpe United.
The Lions took a 3-1 win at The Den exactly a month ago thanks to goals from Shaun Williams, Shane Ferguson and Aiden O’Brien.
The Iron is generally the more successful side with eight wins in 13 head to head meetings with Millwall.
Millwall vs Scunthorpe United: Prediction
The Lions have been very easy to break down lately which is something the red-hot attack of Scunthorpe will definitely tend to take advantage of.
We can only expect a high-scoring affair between two attackingly-oriented sides. As for the outcome, the value is with the visitors at the sky-high 11/4 odds.
