Our football match prediction:
Craven Cottage will host a London derby between Fulham and Millwall. The Cottagers recorded a thrilling 5-4 win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in midweek and the game against the Blades could be the turning point for Slavisa Jokanovic’s troops. Fulham have returned to winning ways, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to book their place in the Championship play-offs. Millwall, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Hull City in front of home fans on Matchday 18 and seeing that they are on a five-game winless run in the league ahead of the local derby, we are tempted to put our money on the Cottagers, who proved their worth in the triumph over Sheffield United. Slavisa Jokanovic’s men are six points behind the play-offs berth, meaning that Saturday’s football game is of big importance for the hosts.
