Millwall v Wigan

Millwall's managerial change has seemingly brought about the desired effect, with Gary Rowett's men seeing three wins in their last four outings.

They also picked up their first away victory of the campaign at Swansea as Jed Wallace's second-half strike secured all three points on offer.

Wallace has enjoyed a terrific start to the campaign and there is real value in the best price of 10/3 available on him scoring again here.

That goal against Swansea was his seventh of the campaign from the right midfield position. Wallace has demonstrated an ability to strike from open play, alongside composure from the penalty spot and a threat on free-kicks.

This should be another home win for Millwall and it's surprising to see them floating around the even money mark as a general price - with 21/20 available with a couple of bookmakers at the time of writing.

As outlined in the weekend preview, Wigan's away form continues to be a significant negative in their season so far and the wait for a win continues after they were beaten at Stoke.

It's a game that should not only see victory for the hosts but one with a few goals in it too - making the 10/3 available on Wallace netting anytime a bet worth backing.

Best bet: Jed Wallace to score anytime at 10/3

Opta facts

  • Millwall have lost just one of their 13 home league matches against Wigan (W9 D3 L1).
  • Wigan are looking to win consecutive league games against Millwall for the first time since March 2005.
  • Since Gary Rowett’s first game in charge on October 26, only West Brom and Leeds (10) have picked up more Championship points than Millwall (9).
  • Only Luton Town (0) have picked up fewer points in their last five Championship games than Wigan (1), who have drawn one and lost four of their last five.
  • Millwall’s Jed Wallace has scored five goals in his last seven Championship games. He now has seven league goals for the season, his best league tally since netting 14 for Portsmouth in League Two in 2014-15.
  • Cheyenne Dunkley is Wigan’s top scorer in the Championship this season with five goals – no other player has scored more than once for the Latics.

Reading v Leeds

Leeds continued to keep the pressure on West Brom at the top while also moving three points clear of third after victory over Luton last time out.

Patrick Bamford's first goal, combined with an own goal that Bamford will look to claim as his own, was enough to extend their unbeaten run to six games.

They're on the road again and a visit to Reading should prove a tougher task than it was last season; a game which they won in convincing fashion.

The Royals saw their four game unbeaten run come to an end at the hands of Brentford - although they can take confidence from the fact that their last three at home have all been victories.

They'll be wary of the threat Leeds pose in attack though and the four goals Fulham scored at the Madejski Stadium serve as a reminder that they can suffer problems at the back.

The big blow for Reading is Andy Yiadom's absence given his yellow card in that defeat to Brentford. The right-back role is likely to be filled by Chris Gunter, who has been brought in from the cold since Mark Bowen was appointed as the manager.

He made the matchday squad for the first time this season on Saturday and will likely be required to fill in for the visit of Leeds. Teddy Howe has featured in the Carabao Cup but the general feeling is that Gunter, who is a right-back option for Wales and was in their recent squad, will be the preferred option.

Gunter has played no senior football this season and it's likely to show against a Leeds team who can break forward quickly as they look to exploit space behind both full-backs.

Jack Harrison continues to improve on the left-wing while one of Gjanni Alioski, Barry Douglas, Gaetano Berardi or Stuart Dallas will also be overlapping. It'll be a busy night for Gunter, and that rustiness will likely show making the 4/1 price available on a card appealing value.

Best bet: Chris Gunter to be shown a card at 4/1

Opta facts

  • Reading lost both league matches against Leeds last season, losing 1-0 under Paul Clement in November 2018 and 3-0 in March 2019 under Jose Manuel Gomes.
  • Leeds are looking to win consecutive away league visits to Reading for the first time.
  • Reading haven’t won four consecutive home league games since April 2017 under Jaap Stam.
  • Leeds United are looking to win four consecutive league matches for the first time since a run of seven in a row in November and December 2018.
  • Reading’s top scorers in the Championship this season are Ovie Ejaria and George Puscas (three each), making them the lowest top-scorers at all Championship clubs this season.
  • Patrick Bamford has scored in seven away league matches for Leeds and ended on the winning side in all seven, including their 2-1 win at Luton last time out.
