Our prediction for this Championship match:
Kirklees Stadium will host Wednesday’s Championship game between Huddersfield Town and Millwall. The Terriers aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Watford, with the team eyeing their first win of the year. Huddersfield suffered a 2-1 loss to Reading in their last home game, and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the midweek clash. The likes of Elphick, Koroma, Schindler, and Stearman are all out of contention with injuries.
The Lions suffered a 3-1 loss to Nottingham Forest at the City Ground at the weekend, with the team dropping to 16th place in the standings. Since the capital club should be happy with one point from the midweek game as well, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Maloney and Mitchell should be the only absentees in the away team. In the first half of the season Huddersfield Town recorded a routine 3-0 win over Millwall.

The Lions share rivalry with Charlton as well and the two teams first met back in 1921. The Den is Milwall’s home ground at the capacity of the stadium, which was opened in 1993, is 20.146.
The capital club did well to make it to the 2003/2004 FA Cup final, but Premier League giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Lions. The Red Devils won the game 3-0, but despite suffering the heavy loss in the title game, Milwall booked their place in the UEFA Cup. However, Ferencvaros of Hungary proved to be a big catch for the English outfit in the two-legged tie.
