Millwall produced arguably their best performance of the season as they returned to winning ways following a comfortable 2-0 victory at Bristol City on Tuesday night.
Gary Rowett’s side arrived at Ashton Gate on a 10-match winless streak in the Championship, but always looked in control from the moment Tom Bradshaw diverted Ryan Leonard’s shot past Daniel Bentley after 18 minutes to put the Lions ahead in a game for the first time since 22 November.
Despite some hairy first-half moments, Mason Bennett’s sumptuous second-half finish, courtesy of another Leonard assist, put the result beyond doubt as Millwall picked up their fourth away win of the campaign.
There were several impressive performers for the Lions, although The Den faithful were full of praise for Leonard in particular, whose been one of their most consistent players this season.

To a man we were outstanding tonight. Jed looked a bit more like his old self. Bodvarsson was outstanding. Bradshaw played really well. Williams and Leonard who was also outstanding played really well together in the middle of the park and to top it off 3 points. #Millwall

Bristol City are by far the worst team we’ve played this season. Awful.
Cracking result. Leonard MOM. Still need that edge in the final 3rd. Struggled with the final ball again tonight.

Leonard, DadBod & Bradshaw played particularly well tonight. Well done boys, much better!

Ryan Leonard, is under rated for us. One of the reason we looked better was because imo we had him instead of woods on the pitch. 2 assists and 8 chances created
