Match preview | Millwall v Coventry City

9 September 2016

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's game

Millwall will be looking to stretch their impressive unbeaten League One run on home soil to 12 games when Coventry City become the latest team to try and claim maximum points from The Den on Saturday (3pm).

Since slipping to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Scunthorpe United back in February, Neil Harris' Lions have gone on an incredible run that has reaped 29 points out of a possible 33 from the resulting 11 games in SE16.

On paper, the bookies make Millwall clear favourites to beat Tony Mowbray's Sky Blues, who have won twice on their travels in nine games and have yet to taste victory in the League this season with three draws and three defeats to their name.

Coventry have, however, secured two wins since August - both in Cup competitions - with a 3-2 EFL Cup success over Portsmouth followed by a 4-2 Checkatrade Trophy victory at home to West Ham. The Sky Blues bowed out of the EFL Cup at the Second Round stage with a 6-1 thumping at Norwich City.

Sky Bet make Millwall the odds-on favourites at 8/13 to pick up three points on Saturday afternoon.
 
Coventry are on offer at 9/2 to leave The Den with three points and the draw is available at 29/10 with Sky Bet.

Steve Morison is currently top of the scoring charts at Millwall with six goals this season so far and the in-form frontman is 7/2 to be first or last goalscorer, and 5/4 to score at any time against Coventry.

Defender Joe Martin, who lashed home his first goal of the season last time out against Bradford City, is priced at 7/2 to score anytime against Coventry whilst skipper Tony Craig, who scored his first ever senior goal against Saturday's opponents 13 years ago, is priced at 33/1 to score first or last and 11/1 any time.
 
Exactly two goals have been scored in both of Millwall's last two matches and Sky Bet go 5/2 that there's two goals again in The Lions' latest outing.

If you are unable to get to the game this weekend, don't forget that all the action from The Den will be covered with full match commentary on Lions PlayerHD from 2.50pm. Updates are also available on the club's official Twitter account @MillwallFC
