Such is the intensity of the Championship play-off race, Millwall cannot afford another slip-up against Luton on Good Friday (April 7).

Luton are fierce rivals for a place in the play-offs, but have recently extended the gap between themselves in fourth and the Lions in fifth to six points. On the other hand, Millwall are level on points with Blackburn in sixth.

While the Huddersfield loss was a blip and the draw with West Brom away from home would have been a good point last season, this season is a great opportunity for a concerted effort to reach the Premier League for Millwall.


Millwall may well be without England U21 defender Charlie Cresswell, who suffered a fractured eye socket against West Brom.

The last time these two teams played each other, the game ended 2-2 with Millwall relinquishing a 2-0 lead away from home. This time a point may suit Luton but would be a chance missed for Millwall, who are strong at the Den.

Predicted line up (4-2-3-1):


Goalkeeper: Long

Defenders: Wallace, Cooper, Hutchinson, McNamara

Midfielders: Saville, Leonard

Forwards: Honeyman, Flemming, Watmore

Striker: Bradshaw
