Plymouth vs Millwall predictions: Pilgrims to pounce on home soil
Two teams sat in mid-table in the Championship meet at Home Park on Tuesday evening as Plymouth Argyle entertain Millwall.
The two sides are two places apart in the table, but both teams have collected 11 points from their opening nine league matches.
Argyle will hope to extend their unbeaten run to three matches, while the Lions will be eager to improve on their last result, having lost 3-0 to Swansea City at home.
Plymouth boss Steven Schumacher will need to check on Lewis Gibson after he missed the 1-1 draw against Hull City.
Macaulay Gillesphey replaced Gibson and will do so again should he fail to prove his fitness.
Brendan Galloway is also absent, as are Michael Cooper and Saxon Earley, with all three players hoping to return in the coming weeks from injury.
Millwall's George Honeyman returned to the matchday squad after an injury lay-off last time out, and he may be given minutes on Tuesday due to the short turnaround.
Kevin Nisbet also returned after a knock, but Gary Rowett will be without Shaun Hutchinson and Matija Sarkic due to calf and muscle injuries, respectively.
Plymouth's form at Home Park has been formidable under Schumacher, and they used it to their advantage to get promoted from League One.
Only Lincoln City and Southampton have beaten them in league matches since the start of the year, while Crystal Palace eliminated them from the Carabao Cup in August at Home Park.
Schumacher's men have recorded back-to-back league wins in front of their own fans, proving too much for Blackburn Rovers in a 3-0 success while they thrashed Norwich City 6-2 in their previous home match.
Millwall have struggled for consistency of late, with their 3-0 win over Rotherham United their only success in September.
They have also started to struggle in front of goal, failing to trouble the scoresheet in three of their previous four.
Neither Plymouth nor Millwall are in fantastic form, but the former have certainly got more momentum behind them.
With Tuesday's match taking place at Home Park, it makes perfect sense to back a home win, especially considering Plymouth's results there in 2023.
Millwall's struggles in front of goal certainly help Plymouth's cause, and the home side should be able to extend their unbeaten run to three matches.
