Walsh starts at the Den

Liam Walsh makes his first start of the calendar year in City’s trip to Millwall this evening (April 30th).

He joins the central midfield pack and is one of three changes overall to Lee Johnson’s side.

Max O’Leary returns to the City goal over Niki Mäenpää, while Lloyd Kelly joins the back four with a place on the bench for Jay Dasilva.

Assistant Head Coach Jamie McAllister said: "We've made three changes from Saturday, to freshen it up. It's a strong team, a strong bench and we're looking forward to the game.

"Walshy comes in to add a bit of steel, a bit of grit and Lloydy comes in to add a bit more presence with their long balls, while Max comes in for Niki who has been out for a long time and is not 100% for tonight.

"There's excitement in the camp, there's everything to play for still and with 1,300-plus fans travelling we want to recreate the performance from Saturday but be more clinical."

City v Millwall kicks off at 7.45pm.

City: O’Leary, Hunt, Webster, Kalas, Kelly, Walsh, Pack, Paterson, Weimann, Brownhill, Diédhiou. Subs: Pisano, Dasilva, Wright, Taylor, Eliasson, Palmer, Eisa.

Millwall: Martin, Meredith, Cooper, Williams, Gregory, Ferguson, Romeo, Pearce, Tunnicliffe, Morison, Leonard. Subs: Amos, Mcloughlin, Elliott, Skalak, Debrah, Mitchell, Alexander.
