Millwall vs Sheffield Utd by Hassy

Millwall

Sheffield-Utd
Millwall boss Neil Harris will be looking for an instant and positive reaction from his players after they suffered a battering 5-1 loss to free scoring Peterborough on Tuesday night. The loss was Millwall's first defeat of the season and Harris was critical of his players after the defeat. This was the second season in a row they have conceded five goals at ABAX Stadium so London Road isn't a place Millwall enjoy visiting. Despite the heavy defeat I have no quals about backing The Lions for a home win because prior to the blip at Peterborough in midweek, Millwall had won two and drawn the other match of their opening three fixtures this season and scored nine goals in the process.

 

The same cannot be said about Saturday's opponents Sheffield United who have yet to record a victory this season, and have not won a competitive League or Cup match in seven games. A most recent 0-3 home humiliation was the latest shock at Bramall Lane. United were 0-3 down at half time so confidence won't be at its highest this weekend.

 

Neil Harris will check on the fitness of a number of players before the League One clash with Sheffield United this weekend. Shaun Williams missed the 5-1 defeat at Peterborough on Tuesday night after receiving a blow to the head in the 2-2 draw at MK Dons at the weekend. David Worrall was left on the bench at ABAX Stadium as he had a tight hamstring. Shaun Hutchinson also looked like he suffered a reoccurrence of his hamstring injury minutes entering the fray to make his competitive debut.

 

Chris Wilder has threatened to wield the axe ahead of this weekend’s visit to Millwall. Wilder has signed eight new players since taking charge of United in May but has yet to see anything positive from a side tipped as favourites for the league 1 title. New signing, Simon Moore is expected to go straight into the team in goal after signing yesterday. Many of The Blades players have called for my passion and desire over the technical aspect of the game which tells me they have mental issues in coping with this division. With mental frailties clearly evident, The Den is the last place a side wants to be going to so I have grave concerns for a Sheffield United side struggling for form.

 

Harris' charges, who have won two of the their last three matches against Wilder's United. I expect the London side to record a home win over a side over rated and struggling to come to terms with being a scalp for most sides in the division.pin
