Swansea’s unbeaten 2019 came to an end at a resurgent Bristol City. Bristol City got off to a strong start and had a 24th minute effort ruled out - Andi Weimann drifting offside from a corner. Oli McBurnie, Matt Grimes and Nathan Dyer all drew saves from Bristol keeper Frank Fielding, but the sides went in level at half time. It didn’t take long for the deadlock to be broken in the second half however. Jamie Paterson’s cross was finished well by Andi Weimann into the far corner, making up for his previous disallowed effort. George Byers had a long rang effort tipped onto the post of the Swans, but it was Bristol City who would score the vital second goal. Weimann turned from goalscorer to provider, setting up Callum O’Dowda in the box, before he slipped the ball under Erwin Mulder. Swansea drop down to 13th after their defeat, but still remain within touching distance of the top 6.

Last Time Out In The Championship
A basement battle at The Den ended in a 0-0 draw between Millwall and Rotherham. Ryan Leonard came close in the opening exchanges when his long range effort was tipped just over the bar. As Millwall continued to dominate, Jake Cooper and Ben Marshall both headed over from corners. Rotherham came out stronger in the second half and easily could have took the lead. Striker Michael Smith missed two chances to put his side ahead as tempers flared at The Den. Neither goalkeeper was troubled after Smith’s spurned chances, but Lee Gregory will be kicking himself after missing a late opportunity. After a fast break, Gregory was set up perfectly by Jed Wallace, but put his shot wide with the goal at his mercy. The point was a better result for Millwall, who remain 5 points out the relegation zone in 20th.

In a traditionally even fixture, Swansea City have the edge after a 2-1 win earlier this season. OIi McBurnie completed the late comeback in the 85th minute, after Swansea had played almost the full match with 10 men. Prior to that, Swansea were even better, winning 2-0 at The Den, thanks to goals from Darren Pratley and Stephen Dobbie. The last time the two sides met at the Liberty Stadium was in December 2010. An early goal for each side ended the scoring in a 1-1 draw in the Championship. We have to go back to 2006 for the last time Swansea won a league game against Millwall at home, Swans legend Leon Britton scoring in a 2-0 win when both sides were in League One.
