2019-20 Sky Bet Championship: Week 40 – Tuesday

Millwall welcome Swansea City to The Den in a huge Sky Bet Championship clash, as both teams look to keep their fading play-off dreams alive. 

With a point separating the Swans and Millwall, a win for either team coupled with results elsewhere could send either team as high as seventh.

Millwall manager, Gary Rowett could rotate his squad with Matt Smith set to start in place of Tom Bradshaw up front. 

Swansea will be without Jordan Garrick after the midfielder was sent off in Saturday’s home loss to Luton. 

 

Stat Attack

  • Millwall have taken four points from their last five meetings against Swansea (W1, D1, L3). 
  • Swansea are unbeaten in their last three trips to The Den (W2, D1)
  • Four of last five goals in this fixture has come after half-time, with exception of Swansea’s 1-0 home win in February 2019 through George Byers’ 43rd minute effort. 

 

Prediction

With the play-off race so tight at present, defeat for either team could all but spell the end of their promotion dreams. 

I therefore am expecting a competitive match between two similar performing teams but if Swansea can find their spark from their last away performance at Middlesbrough, then I can’t see Millwall getting anything from this game. 

Prediction: Millwall 1-2 Swansea

Result: Millwall 1-1 Swansea
