Millwall are just one point outside the play-offs and have played at least one game (in some cases two) lower than the teams above them. Their three game unbeaten run came to an end with a 1-0 loss to Coventry last time out but it is still two defeats in nine.
The Lions tend to be involved in low scoring matches with just two of their last nine going over 2.5 goals and only two of their last eight seeing both teams score. Zian Flemming is the main man for the London outfit with nine goals while Tom Bradshaw has chipped in with seven.
Sheffield United sit in second spot eight behind leaders Burnley and seven above Middlesbrough in third spot with a game in hand. They did lose to Boro in midweek which put a ten game unbeaten run to an end and was only their second defeat in their last 16 league games.
Six of the last eight games the Yorkshire side have played on the road have gone under 2.5 goals with the other two producing three goals. The Blades are strong at the back on their travels and have conceded just three in their last seven road trips.
Millwall vs Sheffield United match stats
The hosts are battling to keep themselves close to the top three while the visitors will be starting to look over their shoulder with Middlesbrough chasing them. Both teams are strong in defence and both teams would rather not lose here. This points the way towards both teams not to score which has collected in five of their last eight Championship games at the Den.
Both teams suffered defeats in midweek and it might be a case of building from a solid platform again for two safety first managers in Gary Rowett and Paul Heckingbottom. Both sides will be aware of the threat caused by the opposition attacking talent. Backing the game to be goalless at half-time looks the way to play this.
