Bristol City – Millwall Predictions and Preview

  • Bristol City’s surge towards the Championship play-off spots hit a minor speed bump last time out, after a 0-0 draw with Birmingham City ended their three match winning run. However, head coach Liam Manning will be proud of his team’s current four-match unbeaten streak, which equals the Robins’ best run during this Championship campaign, while they last went five league games without defeat back in February.
  • City will be looking to carry their momentum into 2024, but playing on January 1st hasn’t been kind to the hosts, who have won just one of their last five encounters on New Year’s Day (D1, L3). They host Millwall hoping to improve on that record, where a win would also see Bristol City register a first league double over the visitors since the 2011/12 season, after a dramatically late 1-0 triumph in the reverse fixture.
  • Millwall certainly won’t be intimidated on their arrival at Ashton Gate, where they have won on three of their last four trips (L1). Joe Edwards and his troops will also be feeling confident, having turned a corner by registering back-to-back clean-sheet victories in their last two matches – as many wins as they managed in their 16 contests prior (D7, L7).
  • Those victories have lifted the Lions to 16th in the table, and they will fancy their chances of more success here, since they have won their last three games on New Year’s Day. Their away form is perhaps the only cause for concern in the camp, having lost three of their last four on their travels (D1) after suffering a lone defeat in their first eight outings on the road this term (W3, D4).
  • Players to watch: Bristol City’s Mark Sykes tends to grow into matches, since four of his five goals this season have come after half-time. As for Millwall, they will be looking to Zian Flemming for inspiration, given 11 of his last 15 goals have come away from the Den, a sequence that started when getting the winner in the corresponding fixture last season.
  • Hot stat: Only two of Bristol City’s last 11 home league matches have seen a scoreless first half.
