Millwall and Fulham have been two of the in-form Championship sides in recent months, however it was disappointment for both outfits at the weekend when they were held to 1-1 draws – Millwall sharing the spoils with Sheffield United at Bramall lane and Fulham drawing with local rivals Brentford at Craven Cottage.
Fulham’s failure to collect all three points in front of their home fans enabled Cardiff City to overtake them in the Championship table and more importantly retake the second automatic promotion place. Indeed the Bluebirds enjoy a game-in-hand over the Cottagers as things stand and Slavisa Jokanovic’s side will be desperate to climb back into the top-two with a win in south-east London on Friday evening.
Prior to their weekend draw with the Bees, Fulham had won eight of their previous nine league games with just a single stalemate along the way and the evidence suggests that they will bounce back with a win at the Den, however Millwall have also been enjoying some excellent form of late and they will be a very tough nut to crack.
You can back either Millwall or Fulham with added value thanks to the many free bets available from the bookmakers.
Millwall remain in a play-off place despite dropping two points at Sheffield United last time out, however the Lions have been red hot at the Den this term with their last home defeat being in early November and they will certainly be no pushover. Indeed there is a strong case to be made for both sides and we can expect a closely-fought encounter in New Cross on Friday evening although whilst we’re expecting goals from both sides, we’ll be siding with the visitors to end Millwall’s lengthy unbeaten home run by heading back across the capital with the points in the bag, Bet365 Bookies going 3/1 on Fulham to win and both teams to score.
