Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a midweek win (3-1) over Swansea City, Stoke City will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Millwall on Matchday 34. The Potters proved their worth in the Swansea.com Stadium clash, and they must be high on spirits ahead of the visit of Millwall. Josh Laurent should keep his place in the starting XI after scoring a brace in Tuesday’s triumph, while both Josh Tymon and Sam Clucas are sidelined with injuries.
The Lions, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Burnley. Millwall produce much better showings at home than on the travels, and seeing that they have already suffered eight defeats on the road this term, we are going to put our money on Alex Neil’s troops. All Shaun Hutchinson, Mason Bennett, Callum Styles, and Tyler Burey remain on the sidelines with injuries.
