Barnsley vs Bristol City

Oakwell, April 9, 3pm

BRISTOL City’s currently flurry looks set to mask a season that will ultimately go down as a disappointment for a club who promised so much.

With Steve Coppell at the helm, the Robins looked set to return to play-off contender status following last season’s slump.

But Coppell lasted just one game before quitting and City have toiled, yet to occupy a top half place this campaign.

But six wins in the last seven should ensure they land a top 12 finish.

MANAGER

WITH two previous caretaker manager stints at Ashton Gate under his belt, it seemed inevitable Keith Millen would get a more permanent stay at the helm at some point. And given the Robins’ recent form, the Bristol City heirarchy will be wishing they the opportunity earlier to the 44-year-old who knows the club inside out.

The former Brentford and Watford centre half finished his playing career with City in 1999 and joined the coaching set up, moving up to assistant under Brian Tinnion and then Gary Johnson with caretaker stints after each departed.
