Millwall welcome high-flying Sheffield United to The Den on Saturday (2nd), as they look to get their first three points since October.

Last time out Millwall lost their London derby to Fulham, after The Cottagers’ Oliver Norwood converted from the penalty spot to win the game 1-0, condemning Millwall to their eighth defeat of the season.

Sheffield United on the other hand, only managed to earn one point after drawing to struggling Birmingham City. This result puts Sheffield United three points off the automatic promotion places.

Relegation zone

Millwall’s form going in to the game does not bode well. The Lions have not managed a win in their last six games, drawing three and losing three (LLDDL), leaving Neil Harris’ Millwall in 19th place and only five points clear of the relegation zone.

Chris Wilder’s Blades have had slightly better form in recent weeks. Despite not winning in their last two games Sheffield United sit in third place, having won two, drawn one and losing two in their last five games (LWWLD).

These two sides last met each other last season in League One before both teams were promoted. In August 2016 Millwall won the game at The Den 2-1 with Shaun Williams and Steve Morison on the scoresheet for The Lions. In March it was Sheffield United who came out on top winning the game 2-0 at Bramall Lane.

The Lions will want to pick up all three points as a loss can see them drop closer to the relegation zone, and with the congested Christmas fixtures coming up they will want to create space between themselves and the drop.

Kick-off is 3pm.
