Millwall vs Brentford (By: Luke)
Millwall was set as a huge underdog away to Sheffield United, but the side managed to walk away with a point in a 1:1 draw. They were with a great fighting spirit and maybe even deserved more, missing a penalty towards the end as well.
It was the third game with no defeat, a victory against WBA and a draw against QPR both at home. The team is still two points above the relegation zone and this comes as a must-win situation for them.
Brentford comes from a 2:1 defeat away to Reading last weekend, staying behind in the scoreline with two goals down already after the first fifteen minutes. They were better from that moment on, actually were far better but the final effort in front of opponents goal wasn't anywhere classy.
The side is now safe, without relegating troubles but also without promotional hopes, being able to test few things in their team for the next season.
The hosts will be able to field their best here, having no injury or suspension worry. The guests miss goalkeeper Bentley (33/0), central back Barbet (32/1), midfielders McEachran (24/1) and MacLeod (17/3) due to injuries.
- Brentford have been losing at both half time and full time in 5 of their last 7 away matches (Championship).
The competitive motive of Millwall should play a huge role here. Brentford never was much of power away from home and I can't see them being threatening much here.
If the hosts show anything close to similar performance as away to Sheffield United, they should be able to get the victory in a quite convincing way here.
