- Millwall have scored only 16 goals in 19 Championship home games this season
- West Brom are unbeaten in their last five away games
- Recommended bet:
West Brom to win

A crucial Championship encounter takes place at The Den on Good Friday, as Millwall play host to West Brom.

Millwall have made decent progress in their bid to remain in the Championship since appointing Neil Harris as manager just over a month ago, winning three of their last five games to climb to 16th in the table.

But the Lions are still only four points above the relegation zone and they are struggling to score goals, which could be their downfall against a strong visiting team in West Brom.

Team news

Millwall striker Tom Bradshaw is still out of action but may return this season. Midfielder Allan Campbell and defender Wes Harding are still out.

Matt Phillips is in line to return for West Brom but Daryl Dike, Jayson Molumby and Martin Kelly are out and this game may come too soon for Josh Maja.

The stats

Millwall are averaging less than a goal per game at home in the league, while there have been under 2.5 goals in five of their last six games.

The Lions have scored only seven goals in their last 10 Championship matches.

West Brom have conceded only 36 goals in 38 league games.

Albion have scored at least two goals in each of their last four outings and have lost only one of their last 10 league matches.

Prediction

Millwall have been putting up a good fight against relegation since Harris returned to The Den to start his second stint as manager, winning three of their last five games.

The Lions were beaten 2-0 at Leeds in their last match, though, and may again find it tough when they host another promotion contender in West Brom.

The Baggies have made fifth place their own in recent months and have a gap of seven points above them to Southampton.

While Norwich are five points behind in sixth, Albion are still fighting hard to stay in the top six and remain one of the most in-form teams in the division with only one loss in their last 10 league outings.

They have conceded only nine goals in those matches, while scoring 19, and may need only one or two goals to get the better of the shot-shy hosts.

Carlos Corberan's team are unbeaten in their last five away games and won 4-1 at Huddersfield on their last road trip.

It is not likely to be a free-flowing or high-scoring game with Millwall fighting hard for Harris but West Brom should have enough about them to pick up another valuable win.
