Millwall vs West Brom Preview

  • Tournament – Championship
  • Date – Friday, March 29, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 01:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – The Den

West Brom are making great strides this season having won four of their last six games in the Championship. They are fifth in the Championship standings, and a win on Friday will seal a Championship promotion spot for the Baggies.

They will then take on Millwall, who are a few positions above the relegation zone in the Championship table. The Lions have won just 11 of their 38 league games this season, losing 17 and drawing 10.

They are 16th in the standings and look certain to finish in the bottom half of the table. They have won only thrice in their last six games across competitions, losing two and drawing one. Their last tie was against Leeds United and the game finished in a 2-0 loss at Elland Road. They need to collect some points to distance themselves from the relegation zone.

On the other hand, the Baggies are boosted with the return of Josh Maja and Brandon Thomas-Asante who are expected to feature this weekend. Daryl Dike is also a long-term absentee after rupturing his Achilles whereas left-back Matt Phillips has been out for three months with a hamstring injury and is nearing his return.

West Brom are certainly the heavy favorites coming into this fixture. They sit fifth in the Championship standings and they have drawn in their last five away games. Their forward line has been decimated by injuries but are well-positioned to seek a return to the Premier League next campaign.

Meanwhile, Millwall have been inconsistent since the start of the campaign and therefore languishing in the bottom half of the table. The Lions possess the fourth-worst home record in the division. Since the arrival of Neil Harris in the management hot seat, Millwall have accumulated ten points from a possible 15.

Predicted Score: Millwall 1-2 West Brom
