*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

The Swansea vs Millwall odds are weighted slightly in favour of the home side which is fair enough when you consider their recent form. The Swans have been stuck in midtable all season but did flirt with relegation a couple of months ago. However, before any sense of danger truly kicked in, they embarked on an unbeaten stretch that has seen them move back up the league.

They have saved their best football of the season until the death and even managed to take a point from Norwich City (one of the best home teams in the division) last time out. They won't be taking Millwall lightly, though, and rightly so. The Lions have also enjoyed a good stretch of form and have taken 12 points from the last 12 available.

Neil Harris' return to the club had the desired effect and the club can now look forward to another season in the Championship. Their away form does leave a lot to be desired, though, with just one win on the road in their last five attempts so it's difficult to see their winning streak continuing on Saturday.

Millwall preview: The Harris effect shouldn't be downplayed

Neil Harris returned to Millwall in February 2024 with the club in the thick of a relegation battle and he has done remarkably to put the Lions in a position where there is no danger heading into the final weekend. Harris has been relatively lucky with injuries and he is only missing Murray Wallace on Saturday.

Predicted lineup: Sarkic (GK), Leonard, Tanganga, Cooper, McNamara, Watmore, De Norre, Saville, Longman, Flemming, Bradshaw

Player to watch: Jamie Paterson

Experienced forward Jamie Paterson has shone in recent weeks for Swansea, showing that he isn't on the decline despite now being 32-years-old. He has one goal and one assist in his last two appearances for the Swans and will want to end the season strongly.

Paterson playing for his future

For any footballer over the age of 30, there is always a feeling that the club could be looking to replace you with fresh blood. Can his performances in recent weeks earn him a stay of execution?
