Southampton were toppled at home by Hull in midweek, though the Saints won nine games on the spin at St. Mary’s Stadium before that and they can muster an instant response at home to struggling Millwall.

  • HOME: 4/11 (1.36) – 73.3%
  • DRAW: 15/4 (4.75) – 21.1%
  • AWAY: 15/2 (8.50) – 11.8%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Southampton have won 11 of their 16 Championship home games this term and the Saints look well-placed to add another victory to that sequence when they take on a Millwall side in the midst of a four-game losing streak.

Adam Armstrong has been prolific this season – Photo by Icon sport

Player to watch – Adam Armstrong

Adam Armstrong never truly found his best form in the Premier League, though the attacker has been a hugely influential force in the Championship this term, scoring 16 goals and creating 11 more for Southampton so far.

Armstrong could make the difference again

Adam Armstrong’s haul of just one goal from his last five appearances is a bit of a dry spell by his own lofty standards, however, the 27-year-old should have chances to boost his tally against a vulnerable-looking Millwall outfit.
