24 questions about some of Millwall’s best ever strikers – Can you get 100% correct?
The Lions, who have played three of the top four already this season, secured a 1-1 draw with West Brom last time out and will take confidence from that.
EFL pundit David Prutton believes that Swansea’s difficult start to the season will prolong, predicting a 2-1 victory for the visitors.
Swansea are in a transitional period, and whilst there is less pressure on pushing for the play-offs because of the new style Russell Martin is trying to implement, they are flying dangerously close to the relegation zone.
Millwall have endured a very tough start this season and it will be no surprise to see them kick on from here and enjoy another season of challenging for a top-six spot.
The lack of goals for Swansea, combined with the confidence that Millwall will have after the draw with The Baggies, it is hard to argue with Prutton’s 2-1 prediction.
I expect Martin to get things right at Swansea soon, especially when he fully integrates his summer signings into the squad, but for now, a Millwall win does seem like the best call.
