Millwall boss Gary Rowett has admitted that Luton’s 7-0 thrashing by Fulham yesterday has put a “different complexion” on things heading into the final day of the season.
As a result of the heavy Fulham defeat though, Millwall now hold a slightly superior goal difference compared to the Hatters.
“You have to feel for anyone getting beaten 7-0 at this stage of the season.” Rowett said on the Luton defeat, via South London Press.
“But Fulham can do that to any team.
“The interesting thing is that all the talk before the weekend was about Sheffield United and goal difference and now there is a completely different complexion on the possibilities at the weekend.”
Luton Town face Reading on Saturday afternoon, with a victory securing a top six spot for the Hatters.
Meanwhile, Millwall travel away to AFC Bournemouth where taking all three points may still not be enough for them to climb into the top six.

Rowett seems relaxed on this issue, though.
“It’s still out of our hands, we know that, but a 10-goal swing certainly changes one or two things.” he continued via South London Press.
“The last day is going to be exactly the same as any other last day. There’s lots of different permutations.
“It’s going to be about who can go and hold their nerve under pressure when it really matters. We’re not going to probably know that until about 2.30 on Saturday afternoon.
“It is very, very exciting.”
It certainly looks set to be an exciting end to the Championship season this coming weekend.
Despite the relegation battle already having been decided, there is still plenty to play for at the opposite end of the table.
Millwall and Middlesbrough are waiting for any slip up’s from the teams above them in the play-off places, and depending on tonight’s result between AFC Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest, automatic promotion could also be on the line at the weekend.
Bring it on.
