Millwall have not even reached a third of the way through the 2021-22 campaign and they are once again being labelled as draw specialists, after claiming six from their first 11 league matches; only Exeter City have drawn more at this stage across England’s top four divisions.
Shortly before the international break, however, Gary Rowett’s side managed to turn recent one-pointers into three, after winning their last two league matches by 1-0 scorelines against Bristol City and Barnsley.
The Lions are enjoying a seven-game unbeaten run in the Championship, which has seen them climb up to 11th place, three points behind the playoffs.
Another impressive run Millwall will be looking to extend is their nine-game unbeaten streak against Luton, who they last suffered defeat against back in August 2005.
Rowett will be hoping his side can continue their push for the playoffs, and a win at The Den this weekend could see them climb into the top six if other results were to go their way.
Like Millwall, Luton Town have not shied away from a draw so far this campaign, having claimed five in their last seven Championship matches.
The Hatters were unable to build on their comfortable 5-0 victory at home against high-flying Coventry, as they played out a goalless draw against Huddersfield Town in their most recent game before the international break.

Nathan Jones’s men currently sit just outside the top half of the table in 13th place, four points behind the playoffs and just one behind Saturday’s opponents Millwall.
Luton have struggled in recent years against the Lions, failing to win each of their last six visits to The Den, including a 2-0 defeat in October last year.
The Hatters will require more positive results if they are to climb up the Championship standings, and a victory this weekend could act as a springboard for a consistent run of form as the season progresses
