FLW Duels

Millwall’s international star or Sheffield Wednesday’s £3.5m-rated man: Who would you rather have?



Millwall host Sheffield Wednesday tonight as both sides find themselves in the bottom half of the table but not in any immediate danger of relegation. 

The match is a battle between the sides in 14th and 16th place in the Championship respectively with Neil Harris’s side five points ahead of the Owls going into the business end of the season.

For Millwall, looking set to survive comfortably represents a huge success on their return to the second tier, especially given the smaller size of their budget compared to many of their divisional rivals.

On the other hand, Wednesday who have finished in the play-offs for the last two seasons have enjoyed a hugely underwhelming campaign and they are just looking to stabilise this season before redoubling their efforts to get promotion next season.

Two British players both playing their part in midfield for tonight’s opponents are George Saville and Adam Reach so we’ve run the number’s ahead of tonight’s game to see who is enjoying the better season.

Northern Irish international Saville leads the way in terms of goals, as well as aerial duels and tackles won which reflects the combative style Millwall have used to good effect this season.

Reach’s passing stats are much better and it might be fair to say he is technically better than Saville and much will depend on which of those styles wins out tonight – substance or style.
