Millwall v Bolton Wanderers latest odds, news and free bets

If there’s an FA Cup tie with the word S-H-O-C-K written all over it in capital letters, then it takes place at The Den on Saturday, where an in-form Millwall side will look to bring back memories of their 2004 FA Cup run which saw Dennis Wise’s team reach the final before losing to Manchester United

The Lions are back in the Championship after a brief spell in League One and they have just about done enough to steer clear of trouble despite losing Steve Morison last summer which has seen them struggle for goals all term.

Kenny Jackett’s team did manage to pull off a brilliant result at St Mary’s last week when beating Southampton 3-2 and they are a 19/10 chance (Unibet free bets) to claim victory against Bolton, with the stadium likely to be close to full for a change.

Millwall are unbeaten in three games and came within a whisker of victory at Brighton on Tuesday, with Darius Henderson having recently scored two hat-tricks. He’s a 6/1 chance (Ladbrokes) to score the first goal against a Bolton side who look set to be playing in the Championship next season.

Owen Coyle simply hasn’t been able to rouse his troops to deliver a spirited performance on too many occasions this term and Wanderers linger in the bottom three of the Premier League with just 20 points to show for their 25 games played.

Perhaps the FA Cup will act as good escapism for a team that beat Swansea in the last round and the visitors are a 6/4 poke (Paddy Power bookmaker) to claim a victory to book their place in the quarter final.
