Sheffield United vs MillwallEnglish Championship, KO: 19:45 Oct 19, 2021, Bramall Lane
A closely fought encounter is expected when Sheffield United host Millwall in a midweek English Championship fixture at Bramall Lane. Both teams are level on points but Sheffield United have a fine record at home and will be confident of edging this one.
Sheffield United were victorious in their previous Championship fixture as they won 2-1 against Stoke City. They fought back from a goal down with late efforts from Lys Mousset and David McGoldrick earning them the win.
It was a much-needed win for Sheffield United on their return to Bramall Lane after suffering defeats on the road in their last two matches. Manager Slavisa Jokanovic will be keen to use that result as a springboard to shoot up the table as they sit just two points off the top 10.
Home form has been pivotal for Sheffield United this season and are unbeaten in their last four matches at Bramall Lane. They have claimed three wins in that run, including a 6-2 victory over Peterborough United.
Millwall travel to Sheffield United off the back of a 2-0 home defeat against Luton Town last time out in the Championship. Gary Rowett’s men lacked creativity in the final third and struggled to fashion out any clear-cut openings.
It was the first defeat in eight Championship matches for Millwall, who have been resurgent lately after enduring a slow start to the season. Having spent the early stages of the campaign close to the relegation zone, their recent good form has seen them move to within two points of the top 10.
Despite showing signs of improvement in recent weeks, Millwall remain unconvincing on the road with just one win in their six away matches this season.
