This has been an exceptionally good season for Millwall with the Lions creeping up on the play-off places and a decent cup run boosting the club’s coffers no end. Were Neil Harris’ men to win at Swindon Town on Saturday afternoon then it would certainly instil in the side a belief that they can jump into the Championship at the end of the season.
Millwall sit outside the top six in League One purely on goal-difference and whilst it is extremely unlikely that they will climb into an automatic promotion spot despite enjoying at least one game-in-hand over all of their main rivals, they are looking pretty well placed to finish the season in a play-off place.
They head into this weekend’s clash at Swindon on the back of an excellent sixteen-game unbeaten run although they have been held to a draw in exactly half of those games. Nevertheless this has been enough to propel the side up the table and we don’t envisage the Lions having too many problems at Swindon Town this weekend.
Swindon have been struggling close to the foot of the League One table for much of the season and a poor campaign has left them floundering in the bottom three as things stand. With seven points separating them from relative safety, Luke Williams’ side are in real danger of making the drop at the end of the season and one feels that their dire situation won’t be improving this weekend.
Indeed the Robins have lost all of their last four League One games and this losing run will likely be extended this weekend as Millwall look to claw their way into the play-off places.
