English Championship

Venue: bet365 Stadium (Stoke-on-Trent).

Stoke City continued their horrendous spell of form last weekend when they only drew 2-2 to Peterborough United away at Weston Homes Stadium.

The team led by Michael O’Neill were considered genuine candidates for the promotional playoffs before the start of the season but they have failed to live up to the ambitions and are nowhere near the top-six finish with seven games left to play.

The draw at Weston Homes Stadium was the eighth straight league fixture without a win for the Potters who have dropped to 15th position in the standings as a consequence.

They have conceded at least two goals in six of the last eight league outings. The negative streak includes back-to-back draws with the two of the weakest teams in the entire division (Barnsley and Peterborough).

This is why Millwall have plenty of reasons to come into this 39th round fixture with optimism, hoping to snatch much-needed points in the battle for the playoffs.

The Lions are 11th at the moment but still have a chance to get involved in the battle for the top-six finish being only five points below Middlesbrough right now.

Millwall have been one of the toughest teams to break down lately. They are unbeaten in seven successive Championship outings and they have kept four consecutive clean sheets in the process.

Stoke City vs Millwall Head-to-head

  • Millwall won three and drew two of the last five head to head encounters with Stoke City.

  • Three of the last six H2H matches ended in goalless draws.

Stoke City vs Millwall Prediction

Millwall kept their net untouched in back-to-back goalless draws to two top-six sides Blackburn and Middlesbrough before facing Huddersfield on Wednesday night. We really like their chances here against Stoke City who are winless in eight straight games.

The Potters are also winless in the last six head to head affairs against Millwall. The away win is well worth backing at the odds of 3.20. We will also back the visitors to keep a clean sheet at the even bigger 3.50 odds.

Stoke City vs Millwall Betting Tips

  • Millwall to win @ 3.20 (11/5)
  • Millwall to keep a clean sheet @ 3.50 (5/2) odd.
