Overview

After last Friday’s success over Cardiff City at St. Andrew`s, Steve Cotterill takes his Blues side to Millwall as the two take each other on in the 5:30pm kick-off live on Sky Sports.

Blues should be brimming with confidence after that win over the then league leaders, but Cotterill will know that they face a tough test at The Den.

Approach

With no fresh injury concerns, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Blues boss go again with the same team as last week.

We saw a top team performance against Cardiff with each and every player willing to do their job for the team. There was also the added threat of Isaac Vassell and Che Adams in the attacking positions, both of their performances will be key for Blues later on today.

If Cotterill does indeed go with the same team, then I feel he’s got the perfect blend for an away game.

There’s a balanced defence, bite and physicality in the middle and then pace and power up top that will cause any sides a number of problems.

I’m sure we’ll look to stay solid, but also have in mind that we could quite easily go there and get the three points.

We’ve certainly got the players to do it and, let`s remember, the likes of Jota will be raring to go if he comes off the bench.

Exploit

Neil Harris and Millwall have adapted to life back in the Championship pretty well, but are on a run of two straight defeats.

They’re the sort of side where you’re not quite sure how they’re going to turn up. They could be brilliant or they could be there for the taking.

What Blues have got to do is silence their crowd and look to take control of the game early on – create a few chances and grow in confidence.

There’s the right blend through each third of the team and I don’t see any reason why we can’t go out and claim a second successive win.
