Sky Sports EFL pundit David Prutton has predicted that Sheffield Wednesday will make it two wins in two when they take on Millwall tomorrow afternoon.
Garry Monk’s side ended Bournemouth’s unbeaten start to the season on Tuesday night and had their points deduction halved later in the week.
In his predictions for Sky Sports, Prutton has suggested there will be more joy for the Owls when they welcome Millwall to Hillsborough on Saturday and indicated they’ll claim a 1-0 win.
He said: “What a great week for Sheffield Wednesday. A big win against Bournemouth and then to see their points deduction halved. They could be out of the bottom three by Saturday night if things go their way.
“Are Millwall dark horses for the top six this season? They are going about their business well enough and will be glad to have Gary Rowett back in the dugout. That being said, I think the positivity shrouding Wednesday will fire them to victory.”
That result could see Wednesday move off the bottom of the table and out of the relegation zone for the first time this season, should results elsewhere go their way.
It would also likely mean that the gap between Millwall and the top six would widen further, with Gary Rowett’s side having slipped back after failing to win their last two games.
Huddersfield Town put three past them at the Den last weekend and then they picked up a point from a goalless draw against Norwich City in midweek.
The Owls haven’t beaten their visitors since 2018, a run that Monk’s men would no doubt love to put an end to tomorrow.

Confidence is likely to be high among Wednesday after the events of the last week and that should give them a boost for tomorrow’s game.
That said, scoring goals has been a real issue for the Owls this term – with only struggling Derby County scoring less in the Championship – so if Millwall’s defensive line are at the races it that may be enough to swing the momentum in their favour.
Rowett will be looking for a response after their recent winless run and I feel he might get one tomorrow.
