Millwall return to Championship action tonight as Gary Rowett’s struggling Lions travel to Huddersfield Town for their fourth away game on the bounce.

The Lions were beaten at Nottingham Forest on Saturday, and will be looking to improve on their recent league run of one win in 15 matches against one of the second tier’s strongest home teams.

Rowett’s men currently sit 16th in the Championship standings, and following positive results for Derby County and Rotherham on Tuesday, Millwall are only six points above the relegation-zone.

Here, we’ve been looking at all of the Lions’ team news and how they might start the game at the John Smith’s Stadium this evening….

Quiz: The top 16 Millwall record player departures – Which club did they join though?

Scott Dobie?

Rowett has just one absentee after he recently told the South London Press that defender Murray Wallace has fractured his foot and is facing the around a month on the sidelines.

Millwall usually opt for five defenders away from home, which means Alex Pearce, Jake Cooper and Shaun Hutchinson should be the three centre-backs in Yorkshire, whilst Scott Malone could keep his place at left wing-back.

Meanwhile, youngster Danny McNamara, whose started his previous three matches following his return from his loan spell at St Johnstone, will be battling it out with Mahlon Romeo for the right-sided spot.

Ben Thompson will be hoping to be rewarded for his late strike at Nottingham Forest with a rare start, although he’ll be competing with the likes of Ryan Woods and Ryan Leonard for the two central midfield roles.

Moving forward, Jed Wallace should start on the right, whilst Kenneth Zohore is likely to keep his place up front after having his loan deal extended until the end of the season, although both Tom Bradshaw and Matt Smith will be waiting in the wings.

Mason Bennett will be hoping to be recalled on the left, but the likes of Shane Ferguson, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Tottenham loanee Troy Parrott are all pushing to start there.
