Sky Sports pundit issues a facinating Millwall v Southampton score prediction…

Sky Sports pundit David Prutton has issued his weekly Championship score predictions.

The Championship throws up some intriguing fixtures this weekend, one of which includes Millwall hosting Southampton at The Den.

The two sides have had very different fortunes so far this season, with Millwall dwelling towards the bottom of the table, and Southampton close to the top.

That said, it will be all to play for on Saturday afternoon when each side’s XI crosses the white line.

Millwall, of course, come into this match without a permanent manager in charge, having mutually agreed to part ways with Gary Rowett during the previous international break.

Last time out, it was a 2-2 draw away at Watford for the interim management team of Adam Barrett assisted by Paul Robinson. Can they go one better this weekend and take all three points against the Saints?


That will certainly be a tricky task given the form that the Saints find themselves in heading into this one.


Indeed, Russell Martin’s side have now gone six matches without defeat in the second tier, on a run that has saw them claim three victories.


One of those came in a convincing showing at home to Birmingham City last weekend in which the Saints ran out 3-1 winners.

That result, and their recent form, leaves the Saints sitting fourth in the Championship standings at this early stage.

Sky Sports David Prutton’s Championship predictions.

With the two sides at almost opposite ends of the table, is this one as simple to predict as it looks?

Well, Sky Sports EFL pundit and columnist David Prutton certainly thinks so, predicting a 2-1 away victory for Southampton in this one.

Offering his thoughts on the match, and the logic behind his prediction, Prutton wrote on Sky Sports: “Millwall are without a win in four, and are still on the hunt for a new manager. You do wonder why they sacked Gary Rowett when they did, without a real plan in place, because their season is stalling.”

“Southampton will hope to capitalise.
