Team News: Millwall
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Millwall gaffer Joe Edwards to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy set of players. Matija Sarkic (Muscle injury) won’t play.
In our view, The Lions may well line up in a 4-4-2 formation for the game with Bartosz Bialkowski, Brooke Norton-Cuffy, Wes Harding, Jake Cooper, Murray Wallace, George Honeyman, Casper De Norre, George Saville, Ryan Longman, Zian Flemming and Tom Bradshaw.
Team News: Coventry City
Thanks to a fully injury-free group available to choose from, the Coventry City manager Mark Robins does not have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this match.
There’s a good chance that The Sky Blues seem most likely to elect for a 4-2-3-1 lineup by sending out Brad Collins, Joel Latibeaudiere, Bobby Thomas, Liam Kitching, Jake Bidwell, Josh Eccles, Ben Sheaf, Ellis Simms, Jamie Allen, Haji Wright and Matt Godden.
When taking all factors into account, Coventry City and Millwall could both end up scoring in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating these two teams.
It appears that a draw might be on the cards. That is why we are leaning toward a close game with a 1-1 score at the end of this game.
