Sheffield United vs Millwall
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).
Millwall broke into the top six in the Championship standings thanks to a fantastic run of six wins and a drawn in last seven leaguer games. They still have to work hard in order to book their spot in the playoffs, and their destiny could well depend on the outcome of Saturday’s trip to Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United sit ninth, but a win in the first game of the day in front of the home crowd would move them lock on points with the Lions. It would not be an impossible scenario given that the hosts have already defeated direct rivals for the promotional playoffs positions in mid-week’s fixture. The Blades saw off Middlesbrough quite comfortably thanks to the firsts half brace from Lee Evans.
The team led by Chris Wilder thus rebounded successfully from a disappointing 3-2 loss away at Barnsley last weekend. It was the fourth consecutive game without a win for Sheffield United who still found the way to recover and see off Boro ion a highly-important clash on Tuesday. Millwall will definitely have a super tough task to maintain their excellent spell of form here if we know that Sheffield United are undefeated in last six home outings (four wins and two draws).
Sheffield United vs Millwall: Head-to-head
Millwall were in control of head to head meetings over the last couple of years.
The Lions won four of last five encounters against the blades.
Nonetheless, Sheffield United were more successful in matches at Bramall Lane where they took five wins and suffered just two losses in ten games.
Sheffield United vs Millwall: Prediction
Millwall were fabulous in recent weeks, but Sheffield can be a very tough nut to crack in front of the home fans.
We will go for the draw in such circumstances, backing alternatively the low-scoring contest given that we expect a careful defensive-minded approach by both managers in such an important fixture.
