MIllwall vs Ipswich TownEngland Championship, KO: 20:00 Feb 14, 2024, The Den
Millwall battle Ipswich Town in a midweek Championship fixture with both teams looking to return to their best form. Both teams have been plagued by too many draws lately and Wednesday’s clash looks set to follow a similar pattern.
Millwall are coming off a 2-1 defeat to Coventry City in their previous Championship fixture. They failed to build on a fast start and an early effort from Romain Esse before conceding quick-fire goals midway through the second half.
That result highlights a poor run of form for Millwall, who are winless in their last six matches across all competitions. They are just four points above the bottom three and need a swift turnaround in fortunes to avoid getting dragged into the relegation scrap.
A bit of positive for Millwall is their recent home record as they have lost just once in their last six Championship matches at the Den. However, Joe Edwards’ men have been held three times in that run and played out a 1-1 draw with Preston North End in their previous fixture in front of their fans.
Ipswich Town travel to the Den off the back of a 2-2 draw with West Brom last time out in the Championship. They fought back from behind twice with Nathan Broadhead getting one equaliser while Omari Hutchinson was also on target deep into added time.
Things have been a bit difficult for Ipswich Town in recent weeks as they have dropped from second to fourth on the standings. Kieran McKenna’s men have picked up just two wins from their last 11 matches across all competitions, although six of those fixtures have ended in draws.
Ipswich Town have also struggled on their recent travels as they are winless in their last four away matches, playing out two draws in that run. Defending has been a major problem for the Tractor Boys, who have conceded eight goals in that run.
