After an inconsistent start to the new year saw Millwall drop into the bottom half of the Championship table, the Lions have seemingly rediscovered their form recently, climbing back up to 12th as a result.
Gary Rowett‘s men firstly followed up a 3-0 defeat to Fulham with a hard-fought 2-1 home victory over Cardiff City, with Murray Wallace and Mason Bennett on the scoresheet, before Bennett again found the net alongside Tyler Burey in a 2-0 defeat of high-flying Queens Park Rangers at The Den.
The London outfit were able to make it three wins on the bounce on Wednesday, despite facing the tough task of a trip to a hard-working Derby County side, as Jed Wallace and Burey had them two goals ahead before they eventually saw out a 2-1 win.
After a slow start to the season under Slavisa Jokanovic, Sheffield United look a new side with Paul Heckingbottom at the helm, with the Blades now finding themselves in a strong position in the playoff race.
In his 13 Championship games in charge, the South Yorkshire outfit have earned 30 points, and they have rebounded from a solitary defeat to Derby County and a disappointing draw with Preston North End in impressive fashion, having stretched an unbeaten run to seven games heading into Saturday, with four victories coming from their last six games.
After consecutive goalless draws in Yorkshire derbies with Huddersfield Town and Hull City, the Blades now come into the weekend’s trip on the back of two straight wins, having firstly thrashed Swansea City 4-0 at home last Saturday thanks to a Morgan Gibbs-White brace, a Billy Sharp goal and an eye-catching strike from George Baldock.
Having now risen back into a tight top half, Rowett’s men have the chance to move up a further two spots and close the gap between themselves and their sixth-placed opponents to six points if they can secure a fourth straight three-point haul at the weekend.
Millwall continue to be without several players through injury, as Sheyi Ojo, Tom Bradshaw and Ryan Leonard are sidelined alongside Sheffield United loanees Luke Freeman and Oliver Burke, who would be ineligible to feature anyway.
After an impressive performance in midweek, Rowett may opt to field an unchanged lineup, with the introduction of midfielder George Saville being one of the only alterations for the Derby clash.
Alongside Mason Bennett and talisman Jed Wallace, 21-year-old Tyler Burey should continue to operate in the front line, having found the net in each of their last two outings.
The Blades have also been dealt several injury blows recently, as strikers Rhian Brewster and David McGoldrick, wing-back Jayden Bogle and key centre-back Chris Basham have all been ruled out for the remainder of the season, while Jack O’Connell and Enda Stevens continue to be out indefinitely.
In the absence of Basham, Brentford loanee Charlie Goode made his first start last time out, but, after his red card, he will be suspended for Saturday’s trip, leaving Ben Davies and Jack Robinson to flank John Egan in the back three.
