Millwall, who are amid a three-match winning run and are one of the form
teams of 2018, entertain a Sunderland side in freefall down the league.
Nearly fourteen years have passed since these sides last met at the Den,
with Millwall running out 2-0 winners in November 2004. Victory over
Sunderland in this one would take Millwall to within one victory of
levelling the all-time H2H. Their record against the Wearsiders is
currently: W13, D9, L15.
Millwall sit at the very top of the five-game form table, while
Sunderland are anchored to the bottom. The Lions are also one of only
seven teams to have lost just one of their last ten home games –
although they have scored the fewest in that illustrious group, which
contains several promotion candidates.
The Lions are also unbeaten in ten home league matches. This is the
first time that Millwall have achieved such a feat in the Championship
era (2004-present) and club manager Neil Harris said: “We have no fear
of the division anymore. Four in a row away from home and anyone who has
seen us this season will know we could easily have double that on the
For Sunderland, recent stats make for some dark reading material. The
Black Cats have conceded first and/or lost after conceding in the first
half in five of their last six games.
Key players: Millwall legend Tim Cahill is set to make his fourth
appearance, but a man once known for his killer touch from midfield has
yet to score since rejoining the club.
Aiden McGeady is Sunderland’s top scorer with six goals, but he will
need to improve on his current shot accuracy rate of 45% to really make
an impact for his crisis-stricken team.
Stat attack: Millwall like to ‘win ugly’ – six out of the last seven
games involving the Lions have produced under 2.5 goals.
Sunderland have kept only one clean sheet in the last seven away games.
Millwall will be looking to extend their winning run in the Championship
to four games when they host Sunderland at the Den on Saturday
afternoon. The Lions do not want to give up on their play-offs dream,
but the capital club need to keep on improving their game if they are to
secure a top-six finish. Millwall are brimming with confidence ahead of
Saturdays football match against Sunderland, which is yet another reason
why home win should be considered. The Black Cats, on the other hand,
are having a season to forget and we do not believe that the rock-bottom
side is capable of spoiling Millwalls party at the Den. Sunderland have
been struggling at the back of late and given their poor away record, we
predict that the Lions are going to give fans yet another reason for
celebration this weekend. You should know that Neil Harris men are
undefeated in previous nine home games in the Championship.
