    • Bristol City
    • Millwall
    • FT The whistle is blown for the end of the match and Bristol City win to move three points clear of the relegation zone. A dramatic end to the match, and Millwall are now fourth from bottom. It's finished Bristol City 1 Millwall 0.
    • 90+3 ANOTHER chance for Millwall. They've come to life now, but it's too late!
    • 90+3 Well, well. Darius Henderson is through on goal one-on-one with David James. It's saved and there's a corner for the Lions.
    • 90+3 GOAL!!! What a dramatic winner this will be! Nicky Maynard gets the goal for the Robins! Bristol City 1 Millwall 0.
    • 90+2 Bolasie twists and turns and tries a little backheel. It's a little out of sync with this game, and the final result is more like it...it comes to nothing.
    • 90+1 Kilkenny loops a ball over the top but Maynard doesn't time his run correctly and he's offside.
    • 90' We'll have three minutes of added time.
    • 89' Tony Craig tries to start an attack by launching a long ball into the City half. It's to no-one, and the ball is back with David James.
    • 88' City seem to be suffering from a slight lack of creativity. For Millwall, it looks like they've settled for a point.
    • 86' McGivern shoots from distance. The effort is a little disappointing.
    • 85' Just five minutes left...
    • 84' Well here we go, Darius Henderson, who we were all told was injured, has come on for Millwall in place of Harry Kane.
    • 84' It's an attacking move from the Robins, bringing on Clarkson.
    • 83' Final change of the game for Bristol City. David Clarkson replaces Kalifa Cisse, who himself only came on in the first half.
    • 81' Mildenhall has looked solid in goal for Millwall today. This will be his sixth clean sheet of the season if he doesn't concede.
    • 80' Ten minutes left, can either side get the result that takes them a little clearer of the Championship relegation zone?
    • 79' Well, since Bolasie has come on he's looked bright. He bursts into the box but the shot is straight at Mildenhall.
    • 78' Bolasie lays it off to McGivern who delivers the ball into the box. It hits Cole Skuse and the ball goes out of play for a goal kick to Millwall.
    • 77' Looks like a formation change for the Robins. They're likely to play with Maynard up front on his own with two wingers supporting.
    • 75' Second change of the game for Bristol City. Brett Pitman comes off and Yannick Bolasie replaces him.
    • 74' If City are going to score, it looks like it'll come through Pearson. Very involved.
    • 73' Pearson gets a dangerous ball into the box, and Lions defender Tony Craig tries to clear it. But it all goes wrong, he scuffs the clearance and the ball hits his own post! Closest the Robins have come, and Craig gets away with it.
    • 72' McGivern crosses into the Lions box and Tony Craig clears. The City fans appeal for handball, but the players don't seem too bothered. Crucially, neither is the referee.
    • 70' City's Pearson shoots towards goal but Alan Dunne gets in front of the ball to make a fantastic block. The ball goes out for a corner but nothing comes of it.
    • 69' Getting a little scrappy again, with neither side managing to get control of the ball and plenty of little mistakes being made.
    • 67' First change of the game for Millwall. Nadjim Abdou replaces Josh Wright.
    • 66' Kilkenny gets caught in possession and gives the ball straight to Josh Wright. He takes too long to release the ball and Millwall are caught offside.
    • 65' Both sides are failing to find the final ball to finish off what look like promising moves.
    • 63' Bristol City are really on top at the moment, but haven't created many clear cut chances. Pitman has looked most likely.
    • 62' Another shot by Brett Pitman from 12 yards out, again, it's a tame effort and the ball is with Mildenhall.
    • 60' Brett Pitman shoots direct at goal from the resulting freekick, it takes a deflection and is safely gathered with Steve Mildenhall.
    • 59' Jack Smith goes in rather clumsily on Kalifa Cisse. He collects the first yellow card of the game for the Lions.
    • 58' There have been a lot of corners for both sides, and the ball into the box has been poor on almost every occasion. They'll be hoping to make more of these.
    • 57' Remember those David James 'moments' in the past? We've had another. He takes too long to decide what to do and volleys it straight to the opposition and the Lions get a corner.
    • 55' Millwall have a free-kick in a dangerous area, just left of centre outside the box. It's taken by Bouazza but the shot is wild. Bit of a disappointment that one!
    • 54' Pearson crosses into the box, Nyatanga takes a shot but the ball bobbles all around the penalty box. The Lions clear the ball and Kilkenny takes a shot from outside the area but it's blocked. Better from the Robins.
    • 53' The crowd is coming to life now, and it's another corner for Bristol City.
    • 52' A nice symmetry with the first half here, with City dominating the opening stages of this second half. No clear cut chances though
    • 50' Nicky Maynard chases on to a ball over the top, and instead of taking the more obvious option of shooting on goal, he tries to square it and the ball is intercepted by the Lions.
    • 49' A bit of a nothing cross from McGivern, who floats the ball straight into the arms of Mildenhall.
    • 48' First corner of the second comes goes to Millwall but they can't make anything of it. The ball is cleared.
    • 47' Can either side break the deadlock in this second half. Although Millwall have had the better chances, they have only won one match away from home in the Championship this season.
    • 46' The second half is underway at Ashton Gate. Neither manager have made a change at the break.
    • 45+1 It's half time at Ashton Gate. Both sides have had their chances, Millwall possibly the better ones.
    • 45+1' Millwall pushing in the dying stages of the half.
    • 45' We'll have one minute of injury time in this first half.
    • 44' Nicky Maynard takes a shot 30-yards from goal but hits it over the crossbar. We've seen him score some stunners in the past, but that was never looking likely.
    • 43' Maynard looks to be through on goal but Lions defender Paul Robinson recovers well and Millwall are back in possession.
    • 41' Feeney has enough time to pick his spot with a shot from 6 yards but he hits it straight at David James. The Lions fans will be wondering how they haven't scored in this first half.
    • 39' Adomah takes a shot from outside the box and Pitman connects with it, despite knowing very little about it. He tries to divert the ball towards goal but it ends up going over the bar.
    • 38' Bristol City have had more of the ball in this first half, without doing too much with it. Millwall have had the better chances and really should have scored from at least one of them.
    • 37' Smith crosses in for Millwall but it's cleared by City.
    • 36' Shot from Pearson 30-yards out, but it's a weak effort and the attack breaks down for the Robins.
    • 35' Free header for Harry Kane inside the City box, but he can't get any power into it and it's straight at David James.
    • 34' Millwall probably just have the edge at the moment. They've certainly had the better chances.
    • 32' Oh what a chance for Liam Trotter. The Lions man misses from just a few yards out. All he needed was to get a good touch on it, but he scuffs it past the post.
    • 31' Tricky play from Pearson, but he loses control of the ball close to the penalty box and the chance goes.
    • 30' City fans are getting a little frustrated with their side now, who can't link together a meaningful passage of play for a prolonged period.
    • 29' Chance for Maynard from a tight angle. The striker gets his shot on target but it's a good hight for Mildenhall to make the save. Half chance that one.
    • 28' Neither side can get hold of this game. Very scrappy indeed.
    • 27' So over halfway through the first period, both sides are playing like sides who know there is a lot at stake in this game.
    • 25' Neat interplay between Pearson and Pitman. The former Bournemouth man takes a first time shot but it's straight at Mildenhall.
    • 25' Millwall's Paul Robinson takes a shot but the ball hits the Robins defence and it's cleared away.
    • 23' Corner for Bristol City, optimistic by Brett Pitman who looks for a player outside the box (there was no-one there). The attack dies down and an opportunity goes begging.
    • 22' Things have gone a little quiet in Bristol...
    • 21' Is this the last chance Robins fans see Nicky Maynard in home colours at Ashton Gate? Several sides have been linked with a move for the prolific Championship scorer.
    • 19' Huge chance for Millwall. Hamer Bouazza misses a sitter for the Lions. It seemed easier to score than to scoop the shot over the bar.
    • 18' Nicky Maynard tries his luck again, but it's an easy save for Steve Mildenhall.
    • 18' Slightly surprising Darius Henderson is on the bench for the Lions tonight. Word was he was out for a fortnight with a hamstring injury.
    • 16' Millwall have come back into the match, and have created more chances than the home side in the last five minutes.
    • 15' David James is forced into a save from Millwall's Jack Smith. The ball is cleared.
    • 14' First corner for Millwall after Harry Kane causes trouble in the Robins box.
    • 14' Millwall's first attack, cross into the box but it's cleared by Kilkenny.
    • 13' Kalifa Cisse replaces the injured Marvin Elliott.
    • 12' Marvin Elliott has to go off injured, he seemed to pull up after his chance in the opening minute. Kalifa Cissé is his replacement.
    • 11' Millwall finally get a little spell on the ball, but they fail to create anything from it.
    • 10' Ball over the top by Louis Carey, but no-one reads the pass.
    • 8' Well, that was quite a start by Derek McInnes' side. Lightning quick out the blocks, but the pace has slowed a little now.
    • 7' If either side wins tonight, they'll create a bit of light between themselves and the sides in the relegation zone.
    • 6' It's all Bristol City in the early stages. Brett Pitman tries a shot on the turn but the ball clears the crossbar.
    • 4' Adomah takes a shot from just outside the area, Mildenhall makes the save and the ball goes out for a corner.
    • 2' Very bright start for the Robins. Maynard looks sharp, and is causing plenty of problems for the Lions defence.
    • 1' Marvin Elliott should do better for Bristol City with the first chance of the game. The former Millwall man can't connect properly, the ball goes out for a corner. Nothing comes of it.
    • 1' We're underway at Ashton Gate.
    • 19.44 Bristol City are moving away from their usual one up front, bringing in Brett Pitman to play alongside Nicky Maynard. The latter has been linked with a move away from the club in this transfer window.
    • 19.40 Lions fans, are you excited about seeing Spurs loanee Harry Kane tonight? The young striker has played in the Europa League this season.
    • 19.40 Millwall have only won one of their last five matches in the Championship. They lie one place above Bristol City, fifth from bottom, but with a two point advantage over their opponents tonight.
    • 1935 Bristol City recorded a surprise win over leaders Southampton in the last Championship match. They're one spot above the relegation zone, level on points with third from bottom Nottingham Forest.
