    • Millwall
    • Bristol City
    • 90+4' The final whistle goes, and it's a third win for Derek McInnes in his fifth match in charge at Bristol City
    • 90+2' Bristol City substitution: Yannick Bolasie replaces Adomah.
    • 90' Four minutes of added time announced.
    • 89' Pitman almost makes an instant impact, flashing a shot across the face of goal. He came off the bench to score in City's last match.
    • 87' Bristol City substitution: Brett Pitman replaces Maynard.
    • 85' Great run by Woolofrd downt he left as he skips past two challenges, but there is no one in the box for him to aim his cross at.
    • 84' Bristol City substitution: Martyn Woolford replaces Kalifa Cisse. Woolford scored against Millwall in the League One play-off final for Scunthorpe a couple of seasons back.
    • 82' Adomah takes a clattering as he is tackled while on the break.
    • 81' N'Guessan tries to make something happen on the left wing, but his cross is blocked and cleared.
    • 79' City could certainly do with taking home all three points here. Their next game is against leaders Southampton.
    • 77' Adomah is fouled as he makes his way down the right wing. Advantage played but the striker is eventaully caught offside.
    • 76' James collects a Millwall cross with real authority. The home side are turning on the pressure now.
    • 74' Millwall substitution: Dany N'Guessan replaces Henderson.
    • 73' Kilkenny was caught late by Henderson, and the City playmaker is now down receiving treatment.
    • 72' City may have the lead, but it feels as though this game could go either way at the moment. Still plenty of time for Millwall to score two more.
    • 70' Feeney's corner lands right at the feet of Henderson, but the striker's touch deserts him at the vital moment.
    • 69' Millwall have a corner. James tips it away at the far post and it's another corner from the other side.
    • 68' Mildenhall comes way off his line to close down the angles for Maynard. The striker goes wide and tries to lob a shot over the keeper, but it's a poor effort.
    • 66' So close to a third for Bristol City! Maynard sent free on the left of the box and his shot is saved by Mildenhall and the rebound is guided on target, only to be hacked clear off the line!
    • 64' Howard does not look happy about being taken off! Jackett may want to have words with his midfielder about his tantrum.
    • 63' Millwall substitution: James Henry replaces Howard.
    • 62' GOAL!! MILLWALL 1-2 BRISTOL CITY!! Ryan McGivern works the ball to Adomah near the byline. The forward twists and turns before sending a low ball into the six-yard box that Maynard smashes home from close range!
    • 60' Adomah hares down the left channel now and fires a decent left-footed effort across the face of goal and just the wrong side of the far post!
    • 58' Simpson's goal is his fourth of the season, and his third in his last four games.
    • 57' GOAL!! MILLWALL 1-1 BRISTOL CITY!! Great work from Henderson as he motors to the byline and gets his cross back into the box. Trotter helps the ball along to Simpson who finishes from close range to level for the Lions!
    • 55' Millwall playing the ball around patiently among their defenders and midfielders, but again they are struggling to hit Simpson and Henderson up top.
    • 53' It's been very even since the start of the second half. Both sides have had good opportunities, and the possession has been 50/50.
    • 51' Howard's second free-kick is better, whipped over the wall and dipping for the top corner, but James sees it all the way and tips it over the bar!
    • 50' Cisse slides in to challenge Howard but gets two studs in his chest from the Millwall midfielder! The home side have a free-kick.
    • 49' Adomah goes on a surging run from deep, fends off the challenges of two defenders only for his pass into the box to be gathered by the keeper.
    • 47' Simpson picks out Nadjim Abdou on the edge of the box, but the French midfielder's effort is a simple save for David James.
    • 46' Right from the kick-off - 14 seconds, to be exact - it could have been 2-0 as Adomah's square pass is hit first time by Maynard but it's over the bar!
    • 46' Bristol City get the second half underway!
    • 45+2' Half-time is called, and a rejuvenated Bristol City go into the break a goal to the good.
    • 45+1' Two minutes of stoppage time are signalled.
    • 45' Henderson battles his way past Fontaine but can't pick out a team-mate inside the box.
    • 43' Ward almost gifts Bristol City a second goal! The centre-back's pass back to Mildenhall is very soft, and Adomah almost pounces o. Mildenhall is quick enough to block the striker with his legs and hang on to the ball.
    • 42' The City corner is played short and worked back to Kilkenny on the edge of the box, but he blazes his strike over the bar.
    • 41' Adomah forces a corner off Paul Robinson.
    • 40' The home crowd are lifted by their team, and suddenly the noise levels have shot up. Millwall could finish the half the stronger here.
    • 39' Howard catches his dead-ball strike really well as he curls it around the wall, but it's scrambled clear and City survive!
    • 37' Better from Millwall here, patient build-up rewarded by Howard winning a free-kick in a good position after being fouled by Kalifa Cisse.
    • 36' Millwall substitution: Steve Mildenhall replaces Forde.
    • 35' Kilkenny tries to float a ball over the top for Maynard, buit it's too long. Kilkenny getting far too much time and space on the ball.
    • 34' Adomah has a pop from distance now, but it's low and right at Forde, who holds on to it.
    • 33' Kilkenny stabs a lovely weighted pass through for Adomah. The forward's first touch is poor and Forde sends him wide. Great ball from the Australian to set up that chance.
    • 32' With more than half an hour gone, Bristol City are looking the better side.
    • 31' Apparently Forde may have to come off in the next few minutes. The Irish goalkeeper had seemingly recovered from the thigh injury which ruled him out of the Ireland squad, but it looks like it's still bothering him.
    • 29' Adomah is caught offside yet again and kicks the ball away in frustration. He gets a booking for that petulant act.
    • 27' Kenny Jackett looks very annoyed on the touchline as his team spurns their best chance of the match thus far.
    • 26' Lewin Nyatanga gives the ball away and Feeney gets down the wing. He squares the ball to Simpson inside the box but the forward's first touch kicks the ball up too high and the second is a swiped effort wide! Simpson should have takent hat on first-time.
    • 25' Jay Simpson wins a free-kick in midfield, but again the Lions are unable to get the set piece to their attacking players.
    • 23' Millwall struggling to make much headway in the opposition half now. city seem to be first to every 50/50 and loose ball.
    • 21' Kilkenny tries to feed Maynard with a pass to the byline, but there's too much on the ball and it runs out of play. City playing much better since the goal.
    • 20' Trotter almost slips a great ball to the feet of Henderson, but Cole Skuse tracks back well to intercept and deny the Lions a chance to level.
    • 18' Darren Ward gets a stern talking-to from the ref after a foul on Marvin Elliott which leaves the former Millwall man wincing.
    • 16' Great dribbling from Howard as he weaves his way to the edge of the box and stabs a pass out wide. He almost reaches the return pass but it just didn't run for him.
    • 15' That goal is Maynard's fifth of the season. He is still to score at Ashton Gate this season.
    • 14' GOAL!! MILLWALL 1-0 BRISTOL CITY!! Maynard latches on to a through ball and fires a clinical low finish inside Forde's near post! Great goal!
    • 12' Adomah powers into the box andhits a left-footed strike on goal, but it's far too close to Forde.
    • 10' The free-kick is played low and square for Henderson to strike first time... Deflected behind for a corner! The second Millwall set piece causes a scramble in the box, but ultimately ends with a goal kick.
    • 9' Great persistance from Simpson sees him win a free-kick on the left wing after being obstructed by Liam Fontaine.
    • 8' Neil Kilkenny slips a cute ball to albert Adomah down the right channel, but the attacker had strayed offside.
    • 7' Derek McInnes has won two and drawn one of his four matches in charge so far. This would be a big win today against another struggling team.
    • 6' Liam Feeney's tears down the left flank before clipping in a decent cross. The ball is laid back for Jack Smith to strike, but his strike is way off target.
    • 5' Nicky Maynard has City's first effort on goal, a well-struck effort from range that whistles past the post. Think David Forde would have had it covered though.
    • 4' Brian Howard and Trotter combine before Jay Simpson's cross is blocked. Bright start this from Millwall, who have scored seven goals in their last two home games.
    • 3' Millwall's top scorer Henderson was clearly impeded there.
    • 2' Liam Trotter checks on to his left boot and sends in a decent cross to the far post and Darius Henderson is hauled down in the box... Referee waves play on! How was that not a penalty?
    • 1' Millwall kick off and we're underway!
    • 13:13 The players are walking out on to the pitch at The Den now. You can share your thoughts on the game either by posting in the comments section below, or by getting in touch with me via Twitter - @tony_mabert.
    • 13:10 Today's referee is Anthony Bates. The Staffordshire official took charge of Millwall's opening day fixture in August, in which the Lions let a two-goal lead slip in the final five minutes at Reading. He hasn't shown a red card to any player since January.
    • 13:05 Midfielder Marvin Elliott insists Bristol City will not be intimidated by the atmosphere at Millwall: "When the supporters get behind the team and make noise, it really helps and you feel as though you can beat anyone. But they rely on the opposition being worried and we must make sure that doesn't happen. We went there last season, earned a 0-0 draw and kept them quiet, so we know it can be done."
    • 13:00 In yesterday's action in the Championship, Rickie Lambert scored a hat-trick as Southampton continued their remarkable run of home wins with a comfortable 3-0 victory against Gus Poyet's Brighton and Hove Albion at St Mary's. Round-up: Southampton win, as do West Ham
    • 12:55 The last time these two sides met was in April, when Steve Morison was sent off in the 90th minute of a 0-0 draw. That draw denied Millwall a league double over the Robins after they had won the reverse fixture 3-0 at Ashton Gate in August 2010. Darren Ward, Danny Schofield and Paul Robinson got the goals that day.
    • 12:50 These two sides have met 86 times in the league since their first encounter in 1922. There is not much in it, with Millwall claiming 28 wins to City's 30.
    • 12:45 Bristol City defenders Louis Carey (knee) and Jamie McAllister (ankle) have both failed to recover from their respective injuries in time for the trip to south-east London. They join striker Ryan Taylor (broken metatarsal) and Nicky Hunt (knee) on the sidelines. Striker Brett Pitman remains on the bench despite scoring as a substitute in the 3-1 win over Burnley last time out. Bristol City team page
    • 12:45 Josh Wright will have to wait for his Millwall debut after not making the matchday squad. The former Scunthorpe midfielder this week signed a short-term contract with the Lions after impressing on trial. Boss Kenny Jackett moved for Wright as utility man Tamika Mkandawire is facing four months out after a knee operation. Goalkeeper David Forde has been passed fit to start, while striker John Marquis is back on the bench after a hernia operation. Millwall team page

    • 12:35 These two sides are both struggling at the wrong end of the Championship. Still Millwall can leap up from 20th to 14th in the table with a home win this afternoon. Even if Bristol City win, they will still end the weekend in the relegation zone, two points clear of safety. Championship table
