Millen considering bold approach

City boss Keith Millen is considering switching to a bolder formation for the visit of Leeds United on Saturday.

Millen started the match at Deepdale last weekend with a 4-4-2 only to abandon that for a three-pronged attack at half-time.

The switch yielded immediate results, as strikers David Clarkson and Brett Pitman helped themselves to goals three goals in the 4-0 rout after the break.

"I've always liked 4-3-3, but you have to have the right personnel to be able to play it," Millen told the Bristol Evening Post.

"It's a formation that means, if your first pass is good after you've turned the ball over, you can counter-attack opposition teams and cut them open.

"We broke effectively and at speed in the last game, and we looked more dangerous going forward than we have done for a long while. We scored four goals, but it could easily have been more. It's certainly a system I would consider starting with in a game rather than just a plan B if plan A is not working."
