Preview | Bristol City v Millwall

A look ahead to Millwall's trip west

18 August 2017

After three matches at The Den, Millwall hit the road once more as they take on Bristol City in the Sky Bet Championship (kick-off 3pm).

Following Tuesday night's 3-4 defeat to Ipswich Town, Neil Harris' side head west in search of their first League win of the new campaign.

The Robins currently sit in ninth position following a hard-fought 2-2 draw at Brentford and will seek to anchor themselves within the top ten after breaking their transfer record for the second time in two years.

The Lions have no fresh injury concerns, while midfield recruit Ryan Tunnicliffe may be in line for his first-team debut after getting 70 minutes under his belt for the U23s this week.

Bristol City could hand a debut to striker Cauley Woodrow, who joined on loan from Fulham on Thursday.

The England Under-21 international's arrival is timely, with Milan Djuric and Matty Taylor expected to again be ruled out with groin strains.

It will be the 92nd meeting between the two clubs, with Millwall (29 wins) looking to close the gap on Bristol's favourable record (34 wins).

With a healthy crowd expected, the club advise arriving early Ashton Gate early on Saturday.

Due to a cycling event in Bristol city centre on the day, there are a number of road closures in place.

Supporters travelling along the M4 are advised to take Junction 20 for the M5 and then take Junction 18 or 19 to the stadium, rather than taking the M32 towards the centre.

There will also be a minutes' applause before kick-off - click here for more details.
