For our Luton vs. Millwall prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw
Two sides with play-off ambitions meet in the Championship this week as Luton Town welcome Millwall to Kenilworth Road.
Luton Town currently sit 6th in the Championship with fourteen wins, eleven draws and eight losses from thirty-three games this season.
The Hatters have had a fine campaign in the Championship on the whole as they attempt to reach the play-offs for a second straight season.
They do, though, enter this game amidst a pretty poor run of form having won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five matches in all competitions.
The win did come in their most recent game, however, as they ran out 1-0 winners over Birmingham City. The result was sorely-needed and they’ll be hoping to use the three points as a springboard to further wins in the coming weeks.
Their home form is still solid, too, having won two, drawn one and lost one of their last four games on home soil, with the sole loss coming at the hands of league leaders Burnley.
Luton need to start stringing wins together in the middle of what is a competitive play-off race or they risk losing their spot in the top six. They face what will be a real test of their play-off credentials here against an in form Millwall side.
Millwall currently sit 5th in the Championship with fifteen wins, eight draws and ten losses from thirty-three games this season.
The Lions have had a fine campaign in the Championship this season as they look in a good position to secure a top six finish come May.
They enter this game amidst a strong run of form having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five matches in the league.
Most recently, The Lions claimed a big 1-9 away at an in form Stoke side, a result that should not be scoffed at.
The win at Stoke followed a valuable point against league leaders Burnley the game prior, a result that followed a big win against 2nd place Sheffield United.
Millwall’s away form has been excellent of late too, with Gary Rowett’s side winning three of their last four games on the road.
The two sides are yet to lock horns this season, but Millwall are winless against Luton in the last three head-to-head meetings between these two.
Momentum is firmly on Millwall’s side heading into this game with The Lion’s looking we’ll places for a late push to secure a play-off spot. A win here would be a gigantic step in that direction.
