Millwall 1 Bristol City 2 20/11/11 Championship

20/11/11 Game 17 Millwall 1 Bristol City 2 att. 10,252 (away 324)
Goal scorers: Millwall Jay Simpson 57mins,    Bristol City Maynard 14, 63  this idiot was celebrating his first goal in front of the Cold Blow Lane Stand by giving it large, the abuse he got was probably heard down the far end of the Old Kent Road.

A bit of a foggy day for this Sky Sunday broadcast and although the Lions started brightly Bristol scored first and went on to win the game. With Bristol scoring on 13 minutes Millwall always seemed to be chasing the game and when eventually on loan Simpson pulled the Lions level Bristol yet again scored and we were once again back to chasing a equaliser. It wasn't to be our day as Millwall lacked the bite to see off this average Championship.side. Sometimes you can watch a game for 90 minutes and it's not registered within your mind of what type of game it actually was, perhaps Bristol are not a average side and perhaps the Lions done well to keep the game so tight, not sure. What I can recall is below average distribution from the Millwall back four. There was a bit of a boo at the final whistle, so I guess that a few of us weren't happy. 
ps...from where I was we should have had a penalty
