Match preview

Two sides eyeing a swift return to winning ways are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at The Den on Saturday, February 18th.

The matchup in question will see Millwall act as hosts, in a meeting with Sheffield United.

Beginning with the former, Millwall were brought firmly back down to earth in midweek.

Fresh off seven points from an available nine, and just a solitary defeat in eight, the Lions made the trip to England’s west Midlands, hopeful of adding to the woes of a struggling Coventry City outfit.

When all was said and done, however, a lack of cutting edge in the final third cost Gary Rowett’s troops dear, en route to an eventual 1-0 defeat.

Millwall, as a result, tumbled back out of the Championship’s playoff promotion places.

Still in possession of at least one game in hand on every side above them in the standings, though, Rowett and co. will be hopeful of securing a swift return to the top-6 on Saturday afternoon.

But such a result is unlikely to prove a straightforward one to come by.

This comes with upcoming opponents Sheffield United also heading into the weekend with sights set firmly on a bounce-back result.

The Blades, in midweek, were presented with a golden opportunity to close the gap on table-topping Burnley, after Vincent Kompany’s men dropped two surprise points in a home meeting with Watford.

When all was said and done at Bramall Lane, however, United blew their chance, en route to an eventual defeat at the hands of Middlesbrough.

After Oli McBurnie opened the scoring inside the five-minute mark, Championship top scorer Chuba Akpom levelled things up with his 17th of the campaign a short time later, setting the stage for Cameron Archer’s 2nd-half double to guide visitors Boro to an impressive 3-1 victory.

Paul Heckingbottom’s United, in turn, saw not only their deficit to Burnley widened, but also the club’s advantage over 3rd-placed Middlesbrough cut to seven points.

Though the Blades will nevertheless make the trip to The Den on Saturday afternoon boasting favourite status, we at 101 therefore view an eventual sharing of the spoils between Sheffield United and a Millwall outfit who have long proven themselves a tough nut to crack at home as well worth a punt.
