Our prediction for this Championship match:
Stoke City and Millwall go head to head at Bet365 Stadium in the Championship round 39. The Potters head into the season finale with the lack of motivation as they are stuck in the middle of the table. Stoke have little to play for in upcoming fixtures, which is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered. Both Maja and Vrancic are pushing for a start, whilst all Powell, Moore, Sima, and Souttar should miss out with injuries.
The Lions, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town. The capital club are just two points behind the playoffs berth, and we predict that they will take advantage of Stoke’s poor form. A man to watch in the away team will be Benik Afobe, who scored a brace in Wednesday’s triumph, while all Shaun Hutchinson, Maikel Kieftenbeld, Tom Bradshaw, and Ryan Leonard are out of contention through injuries.
Highlighted Player (Steven Fletcher):
Steven Fletcher is a professional footballer who plays for Sheffield Wednesday. After ending his loan spell with Marseille, he joined the Owls on a free transfer in July 2016. Steven Fletcher was born in Shrewsbury, England on 26 March, 1987 and he began his youth career at Hibernian.
He made his debut for the Scottish outfit on 10 April, 2004 in a 3-0 win over Kilmarnock. After spending three years at Burnley and Wolverhampton Fletcher signed a four-year deal with Sunderland for a fee of £12 million. The left-footed attacker scored 11 goals in 28 appearances for the Black Cats in the 2012/2013 Premier League campaign and he was struggling in front of goal in the 2013/2014 season, scoring no more than three league goals.
Steven Fletcher was eligible to play for both England and Scotland, but he decided to represent his mother’s home country. Fletcher made his Scotland debut in March 2008, in a friendly against Croatia. He did well to provide an assist for Kenny Miller, who scored the equaliser for the Scotts (1-1).
Highlighted Team (Millwall):
Based in Bermonsdey, South East London, Millwall are a football club whose supporters have often been associated with hooliganism. West Ham United are considered the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two teams.
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.
Australia international Tim Cahill is considered one of the most notable footballers who whore Millwall shirt (1998-2004).
