Bristol City head coach Dean Holden is paying no attention to Millwall’s 10-game winless run as the two sides meet at Ashton Gate tonight.
Three of the Lions’ four victories in the Championship this season have come on the road.
And the last time they banked three points was the 2-0 win at Preston North End on October 28.
City lost 2-0 at Rotherham United at the weekend, a result which saw them drop out of the play-off zone.
Holden said: “In fairness, I don’t think their [Millwall’s] recent run means a great deal. You look at the table and some of our recent games, we have come unstuck against Rotherham and Birmingham, so the league table doesn’t mean to say it will be an easier game.
“Millwall are a team who fight for everything and make it difficult for you, and they have got some good players in the team.
“So it will be a tough challenge and the players are well aware of that. The focus has to be on us and getting back to our performance levels after a disappointing result at the weekend.”
