Scunthorpe showed plenty of resilience to draw at Millwall in the first leg of their League One play-offs clash and we’re backing the Iron to finish the job off at Glanford Park.
Only champions Sheffield United won more home games than them in this division during the regular season and Scunthorpe’s 14 victories at this venue included a 3-0 hammering of the Lions.
We’re happy to take 3/2 they bag another home win in our Scunthorpe vs Millwall betting tips.
A Look At Scunthorpe United’s Betting Odds
Scunthorpe had to soak up a fair amount of pressure in the opening encounter, with Millwall leading the corners chart 8-0, but they rarely looked in danger of conceding.
“We had to dig deep and really stay focused – and to a man they did that,” said manager Graham Alexander. “We’d have liked to have offered more as an attacking threat but had to work extremely hard to get the clean sheet.”
The return fixture could well be tight and a little bit niggly again, but Scunthorpe should have more confidence when in possession this time and are fancied to do just enough to book a trip to Wembley.
Looking at the Scunthorpe vs Millwall odds, 7/1 for United to prevail 1-0 appeals.
A Look At Millwall’s Betting Odds
Millwall will look back on one big opportunity missed at The Den, when Jed Wallace sent Lee Gregory through one-on-one with Joe Anyon, only for the goalkeeper to save well.
Lions boss Neil Harris felt his was the better side and will seek to draw inspiration from a fine FA Cup run which saw the Lions beat Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester.
He commented: “We’d love to have a lead going into the second leg, but as a team and a club, this year and last year certainly, when we’ve been the slight underdog, we’re at our best.”
Scunthorpe have won their last five at home, though, and they get the nod at 83/100 to qualify for the final.
