Bristol Rovers could put Millwall to the sword in a game that looks sure to produce goals.
Millwall v Bristol Rovers - Saturday 15:00
Millwall continued their recent resurgence by starting November with cup triumphs over Southend and Luton, stretching their current sequence to six wins in seven matches. But they still haven’t kept a clean sheet in League One since the opening day and the likely absence of striker Steve Morison - stretchered off in the FA Cup win over the Shrimpers last Friday - could leave them bereft of purpose in attack.
The 33-year-old is the focal point for the Lions, so much so he has played in 76 out of 78 matches (starting 71) since returning to the New Den. He hasn’t missed a single league game and on a rare occasion when he was rested last season, he emerged from the bench late on to to spark a late comeback from 2-0 down in the 2-2 draw at Wigan.
Without him leading the line and setting the tone, Millwall might lack some of their usual aggression and struggle to penetrate a Bristol Rovers side that has picked up 19 points from the last nine league outings, coming from behind to win five of them. The Pirates have only managed one clean sheet themselves this term but when you have the third-best attack it tends not to matter.
No has had a tougher schedule than Darrell Clarke’s men up to this point. After 16 matches, they’ve now played ten of the other 11 top-half teams, including Scunthorpe, Bradford and Sheffield United away from home. Their lofty position (5th) is no fluke. Take the the 11/4 about the away win and chance the 28/1 about the Bristol Rovers 3-1 correct score.
