Leeds United vs Millwall

Ipswich Town vs Hull City

_connect relegation Prediction

Swansea and Millwall completed the FA cup quarter-final lineup on 16-17 March and the Lions will have the limited chance to put a dent in Leeds United’s automatic promotion dominance in their bid to stay in the league.

Jack Clarke won the race against his fitness but his failure to be a game-changer after coming off the bench in Sheffield United game. Although arriving strong favourites following some strong showings earlier this year, Leeds provides a major talking point with Jack Clarke in Whites’ XI. The defeat could prove only a temporary blip, however, with the next few games at home more of an indicator of the Bielsa’s true position.

Leeds United will host Millwall in one FA-cup like encounter, with the winner through to the finishing line by bagging 3 valuable points, who will meet Birmingham, Preston North End, Sheffield Wednesday, Wigan Athletic and Brentford.

The strength of the East London teams, and Millwall in particular, was demonstrated when the Harris’ side dismantled some big Premier league team(s), Everton from set-pieces in FA cup rounds. 

The Den’s side prepared for their game against Leeds United by narrowly beaten by Brighton and Hove Albion in penalty shoot-outs.

_connect has challenged Ipswich players to prove they are motivated to arrest their alarming slide in Saturday’s League game clash against Hull City.

Furious with the latest in a growing list of punch displays, Ipswich manager Paul Lambert launched a scathing attack on his Tractor boy stars after consecutive defeats in the league.

The fixture list after the international break in mid-March looks benign, with Ipswich Town facing Hull City, Bolton Wanderers and Brentford before the visit of Midlands side Birmingham. Yet with Tractor Boys still active in so many high-stakes games at this stage of the season, Paul Lambert can scarcely afford any more injury concerns. 

Table of fixtures lists for bottom-six clubs (_connect writer prediction of W-D-L and bottom three)

Rotherham, Reading, Bolton, Ipswich, Wigan and Millwall 

They might be facing Hull City at the right time, however, as their championship rivals are hampered by suspension to skipper Markus Henriksen.
