Millwall vs Luton Town Prediction

Given the intense difficulty of the Championship, teams with promotion ambitions have their work cut out to secure a playoff spot.

As it stands, Millwall currently sit just outside the playoff positions and they have their destiny in their hands, as a win will see them leapfrog Luton on the table.

The away victory to Wycombe will give Millwall extra motivation to get the job done on home turf, but they might have to settle for a share of the spoils against a compact Luton side.

Prediction: Millwall 1-1 Luton Town
