Reason For Millwall vs Blackburn Rovers Predictions

  • Blackburn have conceded in their last eight games
  • Rovers have the fourth-highest number of goals scored this season
  • Millwall have conceded in 71% of their home games
  • The hosts have found the net in nine of 10 clashes here with top half sides

Pair pushing for playoffs

With just three games to go, these two are part of a seven-team playoff chase in the Championship. Blackburn come into this clash in 12th place, but they are just four points shy of the playoffs. While it will take a huge effort to lift them into the top six over the next three games, a win over one of the sides above them would be a good place to start.

Millwall are ninth going into this one, while they sit only two points shy of the playoffs. They will look to leap towards the top six with a home victory, but their return to the Den since the restart hasn’t been easy. The hosts are without a win in three games at home since returning to action, which has left them without success in seven home league games overall. Without their strong home support there have been problems for the Lions. Will they continue this week?

Lift for Rovers

The visitors were able to hold West Brom to a 1-1 draw at the weekend, which has helped them chase down the top six. They had previously won 3-2 at Cardiff a week ago, which first got them back into the fight for promotion. Now Rovers have a real chance of breaking into the playoff spots by the end of the season, but can they rally and claim another victory here?

The visitors will likely need to score a couple to take three points, given that they’ve conceded in each of their last eight Championship games. Things have been tough for them on the road of late, as they’ve conceded twice or more in their last five matches away from home. Overall this season they’ve conceded in 81% of their away matches, which has us backing them to concede in our predictions.

Mowbray’s entertainers

While Blackburn have issues at the back, they more than make up for it going forward. They’ve scored the fourth-highest number of goals in the division, so we expect them to trouble Millwall this week. The Lions have failed to keep a clean sheet in six at home, with 71% of their matches here seeing them concede. With things getting worse without their home support, we see the hosts failing to keep another clean sheet following Blackburn’s good scoring form.

Millwall have had little problem getting goals against strong sides at home, scoring in nine of 10 clashes with teams in the top half at the Den. That should continue when they face this poor Blackburn defence, so both teams to score is our first selection here. On top of that, we’re going with a 1-1 draw as our correct score prediction, given that Millwall have drawn 17 games already – including eight at home – while they’re on a seven-game winless streak. Rovers have failed to win 67% of their away trips, while the Lions have already seen four 1-1 draws here this term.
