Huddersfield Town are set to play host to Millwall at the John Smith's Stadium on Wednesday in their next EFL Championship fixture.

Huddersfield Town come into this game on the back of a 2-0 loss to Xisco Munoz's Watford on Saturday at Vicarage Road.

Second-half goals from former Manchester United and Everton midfielder Tom Cleverley and young Brazilian forward Joao Pedro ensured victory for the Hornets.

Millwall, on the other hand, lost 3-1 to Chris Hughton's Nottingham Forest on Saturday at the City Ground.

A brace from winger Sammy Ameobi and a goal from midfielder Ryan Yates sealed the deal for Nottingham Forest. Midfielder Ben Thompson scored a late consolation goal for Gary Rowett's Millwall.

Huddersfield Town vs Millwall Prediction

Huddersfield Town have a host of injury issues to deal with, and manager Carlos Corberan has a tough job to do under the current circumstances. The Terriers have signed Rolando Aarons and Danny Grant this month to reinforce the squad.

Millwall, on the other hand, are 16th in the league table. Attacker Jed Wallace has been crucial to their attacking hopes, while the likes of Troy Parrott and Kenneth Zohore will have to step up.

Millwall are five points behind Huddersfield Town, but have a game in hand. We expect the two Championship sides to play out a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Huddersfield Town 1-1 Millwall
