Our prediction for this Championship match:
Tuesday’s football game at the Den pits together Millwall and Swansea, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Lions aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Reading, and a triumph over Swansea will see them stay in the playoffs berth. Jamie Shackleton is pushing for a start, while all Billy Mitchell, Mason Bennett, Callum Styles, and Tyler Burey should miss out with injuries.
The Swans, on the other hand, do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last five league fixtures. Since the South Wales outfit failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to Middlesbrough, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the playoffs-chasing hosts. Both Jay Fulton and Joel Latibeaudiere are banned for the match, while Joe Allen and Steven Benda remain on the sidelines with injuries.
