MANAGER REACTION: Bristol City 1-2 Millwall
Millwall recorded an impressive victory on the road on Tuesday night, beating promotion chasing Bristol City 2-1 at Ashton Gate.
Goals from Jed Wallace and Jake Cooper gave Millwall a two goal advantage, and despite a late Callum O’Dowda goal for the hosts, Millwall returned to London with all three points.
The result leaves Bristol City in fourth place in the Sky Bet Championship table, while Millwall, who are now unbeaten in their last six games, have moved up to 13th.
Speaking about the defeat, it was clear to see that Bristol City boss Lee Johnson was disappointed.
As quoted by BBC Sport, he said:”It was a poor start. The goal we conceded was an accumulation of four or five errors on the spin. With the way Millwall set up it was the worst thing that could happen, in terms of conceding a sloppy goal early. It gave them strength.”
“The crowd became more anxious, that led to the players being anxious and it wasn’t until the last 15 minutes we had enough box entries.”
It was quite the opposite for Millwall manager Gary Rowett, who has understandably thrilled with the result.
He said: “I thought it was an outstanding performance for 80 minutes. We concede the goal and then we have a little habit of panicking a bit and holding on for dear life, and I’d like us to be a bit braver and have more composure.”
“First half, I know I am biased but that is as good a performance away from home as you are going to see and we opened them up at will.”
