Early team news emerges ahead of Millwall’s League Cup clash with Fulham

Published

Millwall will be looking to put their Championship struggles behind them as they look to progress in the League Cup this evening.

Neil Harris’ men host Premier League side Fulham tonight at The Den in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic is set to make wholesale changes to his side for the short trip across London with midfielders Tom Cairney, and Neeskens Kebano both set to miss the game through injury.

Millwall, meanwhile, will be shuffling their pack with a clutch of players unavailable for this evening’s cup tie.

New signings Ryan Leonard and Tom Bradshaw are both cup-tied having played in previous rounds for their both their former sides, respectively.

Ryan Tunnicliffe has been listed as doubtful as he continues his recovery from a broken toe.

That could mean a start for another new signing in Jem Karacan who could make his latest appearance for the club after signing last month on a free transfer.

Tom Elliott is also in contention to start having played in the previous two rounds of the club with Lee Gregory even in line for a return to the starting XI after starting the West Brom defeat on the bench.

Jordan Archer and David Martin will be vying for a starting place to start in goal with Ben Amos expected to be rested this evening.

Possible Millwall XI to face Fulham this evening: Martin; Romeo, M. Wallace, Cooper, Ferguson; J. Wallace, Williams, Karacan, Skalak;  Elliott, Gregory.

The Verdict 

It could be a make-shift Millwall team this evening with a handful of players out for various reasons.

Neil Harris’ men could pull off a shock with Fulham too set to make several changes from their weekend draw away at Watford.

It will still be a difficult task for Harris and his side to progress in the cup but tonight will provide a welcome distraction to their recent poor run of form in the League.

You would expect the Premier League side to triumph but with any cup tie – form and status go out of the window.
