Tony Mowbray had concerns over the colour of Millwall’s kit even before the teams took to the field at Ewood Park.

As part of his scouting of the Lions, the Rovers boss watched their game at Birmingham City earlier this month in which they also wore their green and white halved away kit.

The Rovers boss said it was hard to make out the difference between the two teams, with Birmingham in their traditional blue with white home strip, but felt the issue was even more apparent against Rovers.

That was owing to both sides’ kit being half white, though referee Michael Salisbury had given the go ahead for Millwall to wear the green and white away shirt ahead of the game.

Only last month Millwall brought out a new third shirt, however white remains a prominent colour on that as well.

Lancashire Telegraph:

When asked about the clash post match, Mowbray said he was pleased to hear it wasn’t just him who had struggled, something he had raised with kitman Carl Brighty when arriving at the stadium prior to the match.

“I’ve been watching them, they played at Birmingham in the same kit and you couldn’t really tell who was who on what was a foggy night,” he said.

“I arrived pretty early and the kitman said the referee had sanctioned that it was okay to play in.

“I had tried to watch Birmingham v Millwall and struggled with the colours of the kits and I was amazed that he sanctioned the clash of the colours.

“Thankfully I wasn’t the only one who thought it.

“You have to trust the officials.”
