      Tip Reasoning

      Two of the bottom four meet in the Championship this weekend, as they look to move away from the drop zone. Millwall are just outside of danger right now, but they sit on 16 points – level with second bottom Bolton. Bottom side Ipswich are cut adrift, but ahead of them are six sides separated by just two points. That will lead to plenty of tensions around the struggling clubs, and it makes an encounter like this huge. Who will edge this relegation six-pointer on Saturday?

      Millwall are coming off back to back defeats in the league, which has left them in danger of falling into the bottom three. It’s been a very different season for the hosts, who were pushing for the top six last term after they were promoted from League One. Now they’re feeling the pinch in their second season in the Championship. It’s a tough job to guide them away from danger, given that they’ve lost over half of their league games so far this season.

      Bolton are also mired in trouble, having found themselves in a desperate run of form. This has been coming all season, as they’ve been tipped up as a side who are on their way to League One since the summer. They’ve dropped down the table rapidly after a solid start, and now they’re just one place off the bottom following a four game losing streak. It’s easy to see that run continuing when they visit the Den this weekend, given that the away side haven’t won on their travels in their last six attempts.

      While Millwall have struggled this term, they have claimed a huge 88% of their points at their own ground this season. They’re a very different side at the Den, having lost only twice in their last eight outings. However, they are the side with the worst away record in the Championship. Home comforts should help them in this encounter, having won their last three at home, they should find some joy against a Bolton side who have won once in 13 games.

      Bolton have scored just 11 goals in the Championship this season; their joint-fewest after 17 games of a league campaign alongside 2015-16 when they were relegated from the second tier. They’re heading for relegation again, and their lack of goals has to be worrying. They’ve lost to nil in six of their last seven games, including all of their last four. With that in mind, a Millwall win to nil is our tip here.
