Match odds via William Hill:
> Millwall’s early season form has hit a purple patch in recent weeks with only one win out of a possible five.
> The Lions were left heartbroken last time these two sides faced each other. After Nakhi Wells fired home a 90th minute winner for The Terriers.
> Huddersfield haven’t started the season well at all and have the second worst defensive record in the league. Conceding eighteen from eight games
Huddersfield come into this game on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Yorkshire rivals, Leeds United. The Terriers have only won one game so far this season and haven’t won at home since March. They currently sit in 22nd place in the Championship table.
Millwall head into this game on the back of a 0-0 home draw to Nottingham Forest, in which The Lions played well. But, the lack of goals from Ian Holloway’s Millwall side is beginning to worry fans. Especially considering the shot to goal ratio. They sit 13th in the Championship table.
Millwall are without veteran right back Carlos Edwards after he sustained a ligament injury that will keep him out for up to a year. Lee Gregory re-joins the Millwall side after a minor hip injury. Lee Martin also remains sidelined. Huddersfield are set to recall Tommy Smith, Jon Stead and Nahki Well into the starting line up.
Match Prediction: Will the Huddersfield back line continue to leak goals? Maybe, but not so much against a Millwall side who have recently been struggling to score goals. I think The Lions could just edge to a 1-0 win against The Terriers.
