They lost again in their most recent match, this time 2-0 against Luton. In their last six Championship home matches, Blackburn have three wins, while they've drawn zero and lost three.

Millwall came through their last six away games in the Championship without a single win. Of those six matches, they drew two and lost four in which, they were outscored by 11 goals to four.

Millwall have their target set on sneaking inside the top six of the Championship this season, and they have the qualities to at least a finish inside the top third.

Blackburn find it tough these days to get a goal in, but Millwall are equally lacklustre in front of goal currently, and going with under 2.5 goals in the betting market is the obvious choice.
