Huddersfield Town are back in Sky Bet Championship action at the John Smith’s Stadium on Wednesday 20 January 2021, hosting Millwall in a 7pm kick-off.
The Terriers will be looking to respond from their defeat against Watford at the weekend and look for their first win of 2021.
Carlos Corberan’s side go into the game at the John Smith’s Stadium having taken nine points from a possible 12 in the last four home fixtures.
The Lions currently sit in 16th position in the Sky Bet Championship as they go into the second half of the season.
Away from home this season, Millwall have won five out of their 12 games while drawing a further four; that means they have only lost three fixtures away from home this season!
The Lions haven’t won a game at home since October 2020. They have drawn two out of their last four home games with the other two ending in defeats.
Millwall come into this match after their defeat at Nottingham Forest at the weekend in the Sky Bet Championship. This is the fourth consecutive away game for the Lions, prior to the Forest defeat, they drew 1-1 with AFC Bournemouth.
Similarly to Town, Millwall are yet to find their first league win of 2021, although they did beat Boreham Wood in the Emirates FA Cup. The Terrier were beaten by Watford at the weekend but have won seven out of their 12 home games this season.
