Millwall are two points worse off at this stage of the season compared to the same time last year after 17 matches.
The Lions are outside the bottom three on goal difference heading into the final international break of the calendar year.
With 17 matches of the campaign gone, Neil Harris will be hoping to use the next fortnight to get his players firing on all cylinders in the hope they can get close to repeating the post-Christmas form that eventually saw them finish just three points off the play-offs in eighth.
It is going to be a critical ten days or so for the London club who have struggled to kick-on this term after last season’s heroics.
The time spent on the training pitch will be to the benefit of a few of the Lions’ players who have been out of the side in recent weeks.
They will all be looking to train as well as they can ahead of potential inclusion in the matchday squad ahead of the visit of Bolton next Saturday.
With that said, here are three Millwall players who must prove their worth over the international break.
