Sunderland vs Millwall

Sunderland have watched their Championship play-off hopes disappear after seeing a slump in their home form and they will hope the confidence gained from a win at West Bromwich Albion last time will help them see off Millwall at the Stadium of Light on Saturday (KO, 15:00)

The Lions, who are not out of the woods yet in their fight against relegation, have lost their last three away games but they are at least boosted by recent home successes over Leicester City and Cardiff City. Read on for my Sunderland vs Millwall prediction and all the latest team news.

Sunderland vs Millwall Betting Tips

  • Millwall draw no bet @ 11/8
  • #PickYourPunt - Zain Flemming to score anytime, George Saville to be carded & both teams to score @ 17/2

Team News

Sunderland look set to field the same team that won 1-0 at West Brom in their last match, with Dennis Curkin, Niall Huggins and Nazarii Rusyn are all injured.

Millwall boss Neil Harris has no fresh injury or suspension concerns after their latest home victory over his former club Cardiff.

Match Odds

Sunderland are 5/4 to get back to winning ways at home while Millwall are 12/5 to take three valuable points back to London. The draw can be backed at 11/5.

Not many goals are expected with over 2.5 chalked up at 11/10 and under at 4/6, while both teams to score is a 5/6 chance.

Sunderland’s Jack Clarke is 11/2 to score the first goal, followed by his Portuguese teammate Luis Semedo at 13/2.

Millwall draw no bet @ 11/8

Sunderland’s poor home form has gone a long way towards explaining why they have not put up a stronger fight for a Championship play-off place this season and they could have another difficult afternoon at the Stadium of Light against Millwall.

The Black Cats have won just two of their last 12 league games and both of those successes have come away from their Wearside base, where they were humbled 5-1 by Blackburn Rovers last time.

A 1-0 win at West Brom restored some pride, but Millwall are capable of getting something here despite losing their last three away games.

They have eased their relegation worries with home wins over Leicester and Cardiff, and they are worth chancing on the draw-no-bet market with their opponents merely seeing out the season now following that blip in form.

#PickYourPunt - Zain Flemming to score anytime, George Saville to be carded & both teams to score @ 17/2

Those looking for a #PickYourPunt selection can be pointed towards Millwall’s Zain Flemming scoring at any time.

The forward is going through a short barren spell but had eight efforts in the recent loss at Rotherham and has almost double the number of shots on target than any of his fellow Lions.

Millwall midfielder George Saville has been booked 11 times this season, including in each of his last three appearances while both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings between this pair, so that can complete the treble.
