Millwall assistant expecting end-to-end game at Bristol City

JOE Gallen believes the defensive woes of Millwall and Bristol City so far this season will lead to a high-scoring game when the sides meet at Ashton Gate on Tuesday evening.

The Lions have conceded 17 goals in eight Championship matches this term – a record only marginally worse than the Robins' 16.

And while Gallen says Millwall are desperately working to shore up their backline,  he is still predicting an end-to-end encounter.

"We've been doing a lot of work defensively, on blocking crosses, blocking shots and defending at set pieces," he told the club's official site.

"We are still looking for a settled back four, with so much disruption due to injuries, but we're confident we will get there.

"Going forward we look like we're always going to be a threat, and the same goes for our opponents tonight who have plenty of striking options but like ourselves have struggled at the back.

"Ashton Gate is one of the biggest pitches in the Championship and I'm expecting this to be an entertaining game with plenty of goalmouth incident."
