Defensive duo back for crucial clash

Millwall boss Ian Holloway can welcome Shane Lowry and Mark Beevers back into the fold for Saturday's crunch Championship match with relegation rivals Barnsley (3pm).

Lowry completed a four-match suspension against Bolton last weekend following his straight red card in the January draw with Sheffield Wednesday, whilst Beevers has returned to training this week after recovering from a calf problem.

New signing Federico Bessone has also travelled with the squad to Oakwell, and will compete with Scott Malone for the left-back position against The Tykes after receiving international clearance to complete his move to the club.

Nicky Bailey (back) and Richard Chaplow (achilles) are both still missing, however, with physio Bobby Bacic this week confirming that the former is set to remain on the sidelines throughout March.

Barnsley sit five points behind The Lions in 23rd, and boss Danny Wilson will hand late fitness tests to Chris O'Grady, Paddy McCourt, Jack Hunt and Ryan McLaughlin, whilst Jacob Mellis returns to the squad after serving a three-game ban.
