It has not been often in recent games that Millwall have kept a clean sheet. In fact, The Lions have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 7 goals on the way.
A look at their previous results shows us that Millwall:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Luton Town in their previous 5 matches.
- are undefeated in their previous 4 league matches at home.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 league matches.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Stoke City in Championship action, Luton Town will be aiming to make amends here.
In that game, Luton Town had 56% possession and 17 attempts on goal with 7 on target. For their opponents, Stoke City got 8 shots at goal with 3 on target. Steven Fletcher (46') and Nick Powell (55') scored for Stoke City.
The trend of at least one team not managing to score in games involving Luton Town has been apparent of late. A glance at their last six meetings shows that this has occurred 5 times. During those clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal tally of 7 while The Hatters have scored 5. That sort of trend might not be carried forward into this next game, however.
Coming into this meeting, Luton Town have not registered a win against Millwall in away games against them for the last 5 matches in the league. They'll be keen to stop this run.

Team News: Millwall
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just a single fitness concern for the Millwall boss Gary Rowett to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group. Kenneth Zohore (Calf Injury) misses out.
Team News: Luton Town
Due to a completely injury-free squad ready to go, Luton Town boss Nathan Jones has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Luton Town are certainly able to score a goal against this Millwall team, however it possibly won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede.
Our tip is for a very close game with a 2-1 advantage for Millwall by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. It’s a very tough call.
