Our Prediction:

Blackburn will win

Blackburn – Millwall Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

Millwall will be aiming to extend their winning run in all competitions to five games when they host Blackburn Rovers at the Den. James Park in the FA Cup at the weekend, we are positive that the visitors are going to grab something from the Den clash. Blackburn Rovers proved their worth in a 2-1 win over promotion-chasing WBA in their last league match and seeing that they produced a fine display in a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United at St. In their last meeting in the Championship the two teams played out a goalless draw. The capital club showed character in a come-from-behind FA Cup win over Hull City, but beating the Riversiders is easier said than done. The Lions are obviously determined to escape the danger zone and a win over Blackburn could see them move a little closer to the middle of the Championship table.

Millwall have only failed to score once in eight games this season. The visitors have shown themselves to be a danger in attack, having troubled West Brom twice on the road this term. Rovers have found consistency going forward under Mowbray, but they remain too open at the back. Of course, Blackburn pulled off the same, which saw them score yet again on their travels.

Blackburn Rovers will be looking to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to WBA at the Hawthorns when they face Millwall at their Ewood Park on Matchday 7. Blackburn Rovers, though, produce much better showings at home than on the travels and that is the main reason why we predict that they are going to grab something from the Ewood Park clash. The Riversiders aim to climb to the top half of the standings, but Saturdays football match against Millwall will be anything but a walk in the park for them.

Highlighted Player (Shaun Hutchinson):

The Rovers boss has been accused of neglecting defensive improvements, which seems clear given their struggles to keep a clean sheet of late. Those two defeats came in high scoring games, which doesnt exactly ease the pressure on Tony Mowbray. The home side lost out to Sheffield United in the Carabao Cup before a 3-2 defeat at West Brom last time out.

Bradley Dack began his youth career at Charlton Athletic back in 2005 and five years later he moved to Corinthian. 20 days later he scored his first senior goal as he found the net in Football League trophy clash against Crawley Town. However, the English footballer started his senior career at Gillingham, making his league debut against Bradford City on August 18, 2012. Born in Greenwich, England on December 31, 1993, Bradley Dack is a midfielder who plays for Blackburn Rovers in the Championship.

Apart from that, Rovers have more wins from their meetings and are confident from their past two home games in the league. In addition, the visiting side last tasted victory six years before in an away game with the home team. Millwall is winless on the trips on road in the league while Rovers faced only one loss in their three home matches in this season.

Millwall are more than capable of getting forward and causing problems here, with the away side seeing both teams score in five of their last seven games. The Lions have scored five times across their last four away trips, while Blackburn have seen both teams score in back to back games. That has us backing BTTS when these two meet on Saturday.

The Millwall defender has a contract with the club which expires on June 30, 2018 and it has to be noted that his preferred foot is left. He made his debut for the Lions against Peterborough United on August 16, 2016 and he has been playing for the club ever since. Shaun Hutchinsons main position is centre-back, but he is capable of playing as a defensive midfielder as well.
