Bristol City’s next four games are West Brom, Reading, Swansea City and Sheffield United.

Bristol City were unable to build on last week’s win over Preston North End as they suffered their fifth defeat in seven matches at the weekend. The Robins were beaten 2-1 by Millwall at Ashton Gate.

Despite equalising with an own goal in the second half, the Lions clawed back a winner only five minutes later to claim all three points. Nigel Pearson’s side now sit 17th in the Championship, though are only four points off the top six.
