Team News: Millwall
Ben Thompson (Unknown Injury) and Frank Fielding (Arm Injury) won’t be available for Millwall manager Gary Rowett.
We think that The Lions look set to go for a 4-2-3-1 system for this one featuring Bartosz Bialkowski, Murray Wallace, Jake Cooper, Shaun Hutchinson, Mahlon Romeo, Ryan Michael Woods, Shaun Williams, Shane Ferguson, Jayson Molumby, Jed Wallace and Matt Smith.
Team News: Swansea City
Due to a fully healthy squad available to choose from, Swansea City boss Steve Cooper has zero fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game.
There’s a good chance that The Swans could decide to make use of a 4-2-3-1 system, giving starts to Freddie Woodman, Connor Roberts, Marc Guehi, Ben Wilmot, Jake Bidwell, George Byers, Matt Grimes, Aldo Kalulu, Conor Gallagher, André Ayew and Rhian Brewster.
When taking all factors into account, Swansea City have the ability to put a goal past this Millwall outfit, but that might not quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end. We’re expecting a close game with a 2-1 winning score for Millwall at the end of the match. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
