Millwall host Bristol City at The Den in the EFL Championship on Wednesday, with both sides having contrasting starts to their seasons so far.
Millwall are currently 19th in the league and are winless in their last five games across all competitions. Gary Rowett’s side will be heading into the game off the back of a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest last time out and will look to improve on the result when they take on Bristol City on Wednesday.
Bristol City, on the other hand, are currently ninth in the league and are unbeaten in their last five games. Nigel Pearson’s side will know that a win could potentially take them into the top six and will hope to do so against a poor Millwall side on Wednesday.
Both teams are looking to climb up the table and that should make Wednesday’s fixture a well-contested matchup.
