            Millwall vs. Watford Prediction, Tips & Stats

            In the heart of the EFL Championship, Millwall and Watford are set to face off in a match that carries significant weight for both sides. Scheduled for Saturday at The Den, this encounter promises to be a modest yet pivotal clash between two teams aiming to stabilise their positions in the league.

            Millwall find themselves currently positioned 20th in the EFL Championship with 36 points, emblematic of a season marked by inconsistency and the looming threat of relegation. Despite narrowly missing out on the playoffs last season, the Lions have found themselves struggling to gain momentum and secure favourable results.

            In their recent outings, Millwall's form has been less than stellar, with four losses in their last five matches. However, a surprising victory against Southampton in their most recent fixture breathed a temporary sigh of relief into the team. The goals from Japhet Tanganga and Zian Flemming paved the way for an unexpected triumph, offering a glimmer of hope amidst challenging circumstances.

            Following the departure of manager Joe Edwards, Neil Harris has returned to lead the team for what is now his third stint at the club, aiming to steer Millwall away from the relegation zone, and his tenure could not have got off to a better start on the South Coast. With renewed determination and a newfound sense of purpose, the Lions will be looking to capitalise on their recent success and build momentum in their battle for survival.

            By contrast, Watford find themselves navigating the middle of the table, currently sitting in 11th place with 44 points. Following their relegation from the Premier League two seasons ago, the Hornets have been striving to establish stability and consistency in the Championship.

            Under the guidance of manager Valérien Ismaël, Watford have faced challenges in maintaining form, securing just one victory in their last seven matches. A recent defeat at home to Huddersfield Town highlighted the team's struggles. Despite an initial goal from Emmanuel Dennis, Watford allowed Huddersfield to turn the game on its head thanks to a late brace from Danny Ward, succumbing them to a poor loss against a relegation candidate.

            Despite their recent setbacks, Watford have shown themselves to be more capable side on the road compared to when they play at Vicarage Road, with two wins, two draws, and only one defeat in their last five away fixtures. As Ismaël seeks to reignite his team's campaign, Watford approach the upcoming match with a focus on regaining momentum and securing crucial points.

            For our Millwall vs. Watford prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.

            Shaun Hutchinson and Kevin Nisbet are both out injured for the Lions, who are very likely to stick with the same side that started the win at Southampton last time out.

            Should there be any chances, Tom Bradshaw could come into the starting XI up top.
