Millwall vs Huddersfield TownEnglish Championship, KO: 19:45 Mar 16, 2022, The Den
Huddersfield Town travel to Millwall for a midweek Championship fixture as they look to maintain the pressure on Bournemouth in the race for automatic promotion. Millwall have also impressed lately, particularly at home and can cause plenty of problems for their visitors.
Millwall have been on the rise lately and head into Wednesday’s clash with five wins and two draws from their last seven Championship matches. Although they are just outside the top half of the table, that run has put them within four points of the promotion playoff places.
Harry Rowett’s men were held to a 0-0 scoreline at home by Middlesbrough in their previous Championship fixture.
Despite the result against Middlesbrough, Millwall have impressed at home with one defeat in their last 10 matches. They have also claimed four wins and two draws from their last six matches in front of their fans.
Huddersfield Town have looked a different team since the turn of the year and are now pushing for automatic promotion. They are unbeaten in the Championship in 2022 and are just three points behind second placed Bournemouth.
The Terriers travel to Millwall off the back of a 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion in their previous Championship fixture. Manager Carlos Corberan would have been left disappointed by his team’s defending late in the game as they let slip a two goal lead.
Huddersfield Town are generally solid on the road but the result at West Brom highlights a vulnerability that has been evident on their recent travels. That was the third draw in their last six away matches having been held at Preston North End and Blackburn.
