Our prediction for this Championship match:
Bristol City play host to Millwall at their Ashton Gate Stadium on day 15 of the new Championship campaign. The Robins collected only one point in total from the last five league fixtures, meaning that they are low on spirits ahead of Saturday’s clash. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but all Kal Naismith, Matty James, and Tomas Kalas remain on the sidelines.
The Lions, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough, with the team climbing to 14th place in the standings. The capital club aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and they should take advantage of Bristol City’s shaky defence. You should bear in mind that the Lions defeated the Robins in two of their last three meetings at Ashton Gate. Millwall midfielder Ryan Leonard is out of contention with a hamstring problem.
