Millwall host Middlesbrough at The Den in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides having similar seasons so far.

Millwall are currently 9th in the table, two points behind their opponents. Gary Rowett's side have been in incredible form recently and are unbeaten in their last six games. They will look to continue their momentum with a win against Boro on Saturday.

Middlesbrough are 8th in the league, two points off the top six. Chris Wilder's side were demolished 4-1 against Sheffield United last time out. They will hope to bounce back with a win against Millwall on Saturday.

Both sides are looking to climb up the table with a win and that should make for an exciting matchup.

Millwall vs Middlesbrough Head-to-Head

Middlesbrough have slightly edged the recent head-to-head record between the two sides, having won two of their last five meetings, with Millwall winning only one.

The two sides played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture earlier this season. Souleymane Bamba's own-goal cancelled out Matt Crooks' opener to ensure that the spoils were shared on the night.
