Despite having been a consistent contender in the playoff race, Millwall Football Club had been unable to secure consecutive victories for a period of almost five months, until their most recent triumph earlier this week.
The team's recent 2-1 triumph over Swansea City, following a 1-0 victory over Reading just three days prior, has served as a much-needed respite for Millwall's manager, Gary Rowett, as he can finally put an end to their prolonged period without securing consecutive wins.
Despite having suffered defeat on a mere three occasions out of their 18 home fixtures this campaign, Gary Rowett recognizes that there is no room for complacency during the remainder of the season's run-in.
Millwall’s possible lineup
Long; McNamara, Cresswell, Cooper, Wallace; Leonard, Saville; Honeyman, Flemming, Voglsammer; Bradshaw.
Huddersfield Town’s Form
Huddersfield Town is currently in dire need of progress on all fronts if they are to evade the looming threat of relegation to League One.
However, despite this precarious situation, their manager, Neil Warnock, is cognizant of the fact that the team is deserving of commendation for having conceded a mere two goals in recent fixtures against Bristol City, West Bromwich Albion, and Norwich City.
In their most recent outing, the Terriers displayed great fortitude by coming back from a goal down to secure a 1-1 draw with the Norwich City Football Club.
This outcome proved to be vital for the team, as it enabled them to climb off the bottom of the league table, a position that they had previously occupied after Wigan Athletic had earned a point the previous night.
This season, Huddersfield Town Football Club has managed to accumulate a mere 10 points from their 18 away fixtures. Their most recent triumph on the road dates back to Boxing Day, and this statistic is a cause for concern for the team's management and supporters alike.
Huddersfield’s possible lineup
Vaclik; Edmonds-Green, Lees, Helik, Ruffels; Diarra, Hogg, Rudoni; Koroma, Waghorn, Jackson.
Millwall vs Huddersfield expert tips
Given Huddersfield's recent progress in defense, the team will be hopeful of resisting Millwall's potent attacking prowess, particularly when playing away from home. Nonetheless, in our opinion that Millwall's attacking prowess and strong form make them the clear favorites for the match, with a clean sheet included. It is reasonable to anticipate that the upcoming match between these two sides will result in a relatively low-scoring affair, with the total number of goals expected to be less than 2.5.
