Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Millwall v Blackburn Rovers game - plus the latest betting odds.
Millwall, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 0-1 Championship victory versus Hull City.
In that match, Millwall had 58% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Millwall was Ryan Leonard (2'). Hull City got 11 attempts on goal with 5 on target.
Under three goals per match were scored during 5 of the last 6 meetings where Millwall have been participants. Breaking down the goal split during that period, opposition teams scored a total of 6 and The Lions managed a tally of 5.
Taking a look at their past results, Millwall:
- haven't beaten Blackburn Rovers in their last 8 league games.
- are without a home win in the past 7 league matches. Fans are getting restless.
In their last game, Blackburn Rovers drew 1-1 in the Championship tie with West Bromwich Albion.
In that match, Blackburn Rovers had 50% possession and 7 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The scorer for Blackburn Rovers was Joe Rothwell (63'). West Bromwich Albion had 16 attempts at goal with 9 of them on target. Filip Krovinović (41') scored for West Bromwich Albion.
The stats tell the story, and Blackburn Rovers have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 11 goals in total. Defensively, Rovers have seen their frailties exposed. Historical results aside, it remains to be seen if that pattern might be replicated in this game.
Coming into this clash, Blackburn Rovers are undefeated by Millwall when they've played them away from home in the last 5 matches in the league. A solid away record against them.

Team News: Millwall
Frank Fielding (Arm Injury) and Ben Thompson (Unknown Injury) will be missing for Millwall manager Gary Rowett.
We are thinking that The Lions will probably employ a 3-4-3 system for the game with Bartosz Bialkowski, Alex Pearce, Jake Cooper, Shaun Hutchinson, Murray Wallace, Ryan Michael Woods, Ryan Leonard, Billy Mitchell, Tom Bradshaw, Mason Bennett and Jed Wallace.
Team News: Blackburn Rovers
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group, there is only the one fitness issue for the Blackburn Rovers gaffer Tony Mowbray to be concerned about. Bradley Dack (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be playing here. Ben Brereton cannot play in this game through suspension.
It’s our belief that Rovers seem likely to play in a 4-3-3 system, settling for Christian Walton, Ryan Nyambe, Darragh Lenihan, Tosin Adarabioyo, Elliott Bennett, Lewis Holtby, Stewart Downing, Lewis Travis, Sam Gallagher, Daniel Graham and Adam Armstrong.
In this game, Blackburn Rovers will manage to put one past this Millwall lineup, but that may not quite be enough to avoid defeat.
We can see a 2-1 victory for Millwall when all is said and done. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
