Leeds need win against Millwall

Although Leeds United sit in 2nd place and occupy one of the automatic promotion spots in the Championship, things are starting to get mighty tight at the top of the second tier as the race for promotion to the Premier League hots up, with the hosts holding just a 3-point lead over 3rd placed Fulham.

The atmosphere around Elland Road is getting tense as well as Leeds have suffered recent back-to-back defeats in the Championship to Sheffield Wednesday and QPR, while just 1 win out of their last 7 matches overall makes this upcoming clash against Millwall a ‘must-win’ match for the hosts.

The dip in form for Leeds comes at just about the worst time and this is in stark contrast to their previous stretch of results earlier in the season which saw Leeds put together an impressive 7-match winning streak between early November and mid-December.

Leeds have lost just 1 of their last 10 matches at Elland Road though, and the hosts will be keen to return to winning ways on home turf which represents their best chance of promotion.

Onto Millwall, and the visitors will make their way up to Yorkshire having registered three wins out of their last four matches in the Championship, thanks to victories over Brentford, Luton Town and Reading while overall, The Lions are unbeaten in their last 5 matches.

Indeed, Millwall have lost just 1 of their last 13 matches in the second tier which came in the shape of an inexplicable 2-1 defeat at home to relegation strugglers, Barnsley, but overall, Gary Rowett’s side have become a very hard team to beat over the last two months or so.

However, whilst the overall results continue in an upwards direction, it should be noted that each of Millwall’s recent three wins were all recorded on home turf at The Den where the London clib have won 8 of their 11 wins in the Championship so far this season.

Millwall’s away record is a more modest one which stands at  3-7-4  13/18 but they bring a 6-match unbeaten run into this clash at Elland Road, so they’ll be hard to shift on Tuesday night.

Millwall are just two points adrift of the play-off pack and will have ambitions of a top six finish but Leeds know they can’t afford to slip up here as they look to ensure automatic promotion this time around.
