Fulham visit Millwall in the Championship on Wednesday at The Den, with both sides hoping to boost their chances of promotion with a win.

Depending on results elsewhere, a win could send Fulham second, while Millwall can climb as high as eighth.

Scott Parker's side are one of the Championship's form sides and have kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven Championship games.

Only outside the automatic promotion places on goal difference, Fulham have won six of their last nine matches in the league and are undefeated in five.

They are also unbeaten in their last four away matches, but have taken just six wins from 15 matches on the road so far this season.

While a win could take them second, such is the congested nature of the playoffs that a defeat could see them end up fifth in the table.

Millwall have hit a rocky patch in recent weeks and have taken just one point from their last three league matches, but remain within touching distance of the playoffs.

With just three home defeats all season, Millwall have been consistently solid at the back but struggle to find the net regularly enough and fell to a 2-0 defeat in their most recent match against West Bromwich Albion.

With just 38 goals from 31 matches, only one side in the top half of the table have managed fewer goals, while Gary Rowett's side have won just twice in the league since the turn of the year.

Fulham also ran out 4-0 winners in the reverse fixture, which suggests this could be another tough afternoon for the South London outfit.
