Bristol City will be at The Den on Saturday for the Championship clash with home side Millwall.
Our tips, poll and stats for Millwall v Bristol City can all be found here (plus the best game odds).
Millwall will be wanting a better result here after the 1-0 Championship loss in their previous game against Watford.
In that match, Millwall managed 45% possession and 13 shots on goal with 2 on target. Watford got 10 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Ismaïla Sarr (11') scored for Watford.
Millwall haven’t exactly had impressive attacking statistics of late. Their goals record equals just 4 versus opponents over the course of their last 6 fixtures. In those games, The Lions have also seen the number of goals scored against them come to 9. That kind of pattern might not follow through into this match, however.
Analysis of their past results shows that Millwall:
- haven't lost in the league to Bristol City in their last 3 matches.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 league matches.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Luton Town in Championship action, Bristol City and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that match, Bristol City had 49% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 5 on target. For Bristol City, goals were scored by Nahki Wells (31') and Ádám Nagy (38'). For their opponents, Luton Town had 14 shots on goal with 5 on target. James Collins (59'), Elijah Adebayo (68') and Harry Cornick (74') scored for Luton Town.
The stats tell the story, and Bristol City have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 11 goals in all. At the back, The Robins have clearly had some problems.
Their past results show that Bristol City:
- haven't been defeated by Millwall in games played away from home for the previous 2 matches in the league.
- are without a win away from home in their last 4 league matches.

Team News: Millwall
Regarding absentees, there’s just one fitness concern for the Millwall gaffer Gary Rowett to be concerned about due to a largely intact group of players. Maikel Kieftenbeld (Knock) is sidelined.
Team News: Bristol City
In an otherwise available squad, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the Bristol City manager Nigel Pearson to be concerned with. Andreas Weimann (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action. Rene Gilmartin cannot play in this game through suspension.
Bristol City will need to push hard to hit the back of the net against this Millwall lineup who we think should be able to grind out a win.
We’re going for a hard-fought 1-0 victory for Millwall at the end of the 90.
Hoping for a good game.
