Highlights - Bristol City 0-3 Millwall

Bristol City 0-3 Millwall

Bristol City   0 - 3   Millwall

Promoted Millwall made a perfect start to life back in the Championship with a comprehensive victory to spoil David James's debut for Bristol City.

Goals from Darren Ward just before half-time and second half strikes from Danny Schofield and Paul Robinson secured victory for the Lions.

Darren Carter marred the visitors' day by earning a second yellow and subsequent red card in the 64th minute.

City also ended with 10 men when Damion Stewart saw a second yellow late on.

Stewart was one of three debutants - along with Nicky Hunt and England keeper James - in Steve Coppell's City side, but it was the injured absentees that arguably proved costly for the home side.

Coppell demands improvement

Last season's top scorer Nicky Maynard was one of seven first-team players missing and the Robins offered little to hurt a Millwall side on a high after last season's promotion via the play-offs.

The closest City came to a goal was when Cole Skuse's 12-yard shot struck a post after 56 minutes.

By that point Millwall were already two goals ahead through Ward's simple finish, after Lisbie had hit a post, and Schofield's curling right-foot effort.

Robinson put the game beyond the home side on the hour, when he was on hand to apply the finish after Lisbie had again hit the woodwork - this time the bar with a header.

Jackett warns Millwall to keep grounded

Four minutes later Carter was shown his second yellow card and then red for a foul on Albert Adomah.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, the visitors tested James further, but the keeper - who signed from relegated Portsmouth - was able to keep out James Henry's close-range header.

Carter was joined on the sidelines by City's Stewart in injury time, when his foul on Lisbie was deemed to be worthy of his second booking of the game.
