Millwall host Bristol City at The Den in the 10th round of EFL Championship on Wednesday. Both teams come unbeaten in their last five league fixtures.
Millwall are currently 19th in the league and are winless in their last five games across all competitions following a run of four low-scoring draws in the last four Championship fixtures. Millwall come on the back of a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest in the weekend fixture marking the sixth stalemate in nine games.
Millwall have failed to score more than twice in a match and keeping just one clean sheet all season and it will be difficult to make an over turn. Matt Smith netted the opener for Millwall at the City Ground and has not yet scored again.
Bristol City, on the other hand, are currently ninth in the league and remain unbeaten in their last five games. Bristol extended the wait for a victory at Ashton Gate to 15 matches in the Saturday 1-1 draw result at home against Fulham.
Nigel Pearson had uninspiring six months in charge but the latest performance of his squad has kept him back to the campaign. Bristol have collected nine points from five matches and Nigel come to this match confident to extend to the sixth unbeaten game in a row.
It’s important to mention that Bristol City are currently the form team on the road in the Championship with away victories being recorded at Reading, Cardiff City and Queens Park Rangers. Nigel Pearson’s side will know that a win could potentially take them into the top six and will hope to do so against the poor Millwall side on Wednesday.
