The main talking points from Rowett’s Millwall press conference ahead of Bristol City clash



Saturday afternoon sees Millwall back at The Den for the second time in the space of four days as they take on Bristol City in the Sky Bet Championship.

The Lions will be keen to put an end to their recent poor run of form, which has seen just one win in their last seven league games.

That continued on Wednesday night, as Gary Rowett’s side drew 0-0 with Birmingham City, in what was an unconvincing performance from Millwall.

Ahead of this weekend’s game, Rowett spoke to News at Den, first discussing Millwall’s upcoming opponents, who come into the game on the back of three consecutive defeats.

“Bristol [City] are like a lot of teams in this division, they can perform to a very high level but perhaps their results have been a touch inconsistent at times,” he said.

The last meeting between the sides ended 2-1 to Millwall at Ashton Gate in December.

“We went there earlier in the season and made it difficult for them to play into the positions they wanted. Some teams want space to go and play, some teams are better at manipulating that space themselves,” Rowett added.

“But they’re still in a fabulous position and it’ll be a really, really tough game.”

The Millwall boss also hopes loanee Mason Bennett can find his true form with a run of games in the side.

The 23-year-old has featured in the Lions’ last two games, starting for the first time since his arrival on Wednesday night against Birmingham City.

“The challenge with Mason is how quick do we put him into the start of a game because of course as soon as you start, depending on certain variables, you might have to finish the game,” Rowett said.

“That’s the challenge and we’ll assess it as we go. We’re trying to do what’s right for Mason and what’s right for us, what’s right to win a game.”
