Team News: Millwall
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Millwall boss Gary Rowett to contend with from a near full-strength set of players. Maikel Kieftenbeld (Knock) will miss out.
Team News: Swansea City
Swansea manager Steve Cooper has a number of players out of action. Steven Benda (Ankle Injury), Tivonge Rushesha (Torn knee ligament), Liam Cullen (Ankle Injury) and Jordan Morris (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not ready for selection.
We feel that Millwall may well find it hard to break down this Swansea City outfit who we reckon should get the vital goal that wins it.
We’re therefore expecting a very even contest with a 0-1 winning score for Swansea City at full-time.
A close call.
