Bristol City Make Trip To The Den

Bristol City

The New Den

In theory, Bristol City could make a bold move up the table tonight if they overcome Millwall at the New Den.


However, the Lions will be looking for the maximum points that could take them to within a point of Leeds United who, at the time of writing, occupy the last play off place.

City and Millwall had quite contrasting results over the weekend. The Lions won a play-off chasing six-pointer against Leeds, while City were on the wrong end of some poor refereeing decisions as they went down 4-2 at Barnsley.

18,306 saw the game at Ashton Gate between these two clubs on the opening day of the season and the newly-promoted Bermondsey-based outfit handed out 3-0 spanking to give the Robins a very poor start to the campaign.

Vital Quotes:

City boss Keith Millen speaks to bcfc.co.uk:
"We'll have to deal with the atmosphere at Millwall because their supporters really are their twelfth man. It's a hostile atmosphere we'll have to deal with."


Millwall Team News:

The Lions will check on striker Kevin Lisbie, who hobbled off during the game with Leeds on Saturday.

Manager Kenny Jackett welcomes back defender Alan Dunne after a two-match ban, and he could replace Jack Smith at right-back.

Fellow defender Darren Purse (calf) and midfielder Jimmy Abdou (knee) returned from their recent lay-offs on the bench on Saturday they could both be have a part to play from the bench.

Player to watch: Steve Morison

The 27-year-old striker has found the net 17 times so far this season and has scored in his last two outings.

Bristol City Team News:

City midfielder Cole Skuse has recovered from a toe injury and could return to the starting line-up.

Striker Jon Stead may also be given a start having been left on the bench for the last two games.

Defender Damion Stewart will undergo a late test on an ankle injury pthe forced the Jamaican to miss the 4-2 defeat at Oakwell on Saturday.

Left-back Jamie McAllister, who was forced off with cramp during that game, is expected to be fit.

Player to watch: Nicky Maynard

Six goals in eight Championship games proves the City striker is in red-hot form right now.

Match Prediction:

MILLWALL 3-3 CITY
City will be hoping to get back to winning ways after Saturday's disappointing defeat in South Yorkshire. I think there will be a few goals in this one.
