Saturday teams news

boss Nigel Clough is likely to have an unchanged squad with forward Jamie Ward (hamstring) again missing out.Derby County Meanwhile
Defender Alan Dunne returned to the squad on Tuesday night following a one-match suspension for accumulating five yellow cards but was cut from the final 18 along with Batt. Both men are included in manager Kenny Jackett's squad for tomorrow's game.
Chris Taylor could switch to the left flank with Scott Malone slotting in on the left, although Liam Feeney, Shaun Batt and Josh Wright are all pushing for a place in the starting line-up.
If Hendo is ruled out Andy Keogh is set to step in to partner Chris Wood up front whilst there are a number of options for the right side of midfield if James misses out.
Both men have been instrumental for the free-scoring Lions this season with Hendo bagging seven goals and James weighing in with a handful of assists towards Millwall's excellent goal total of 32 so far this season.
Top scorer Hendo sustained a hamstring injury in Tuesday night's 0-0 draw at former club Watford whilst midfielder James is also rated doubtful after also picking up a hamstring strain.
Millwall will hand late fitness tests to Darius Henderson and James Henry ahead of Saturday's game against Derby County as The Lions go into action looking to extend their unbeaten run to nine games against the in-form Rams.
Tomorrow's match comes too soon for goalkeeper Frank Fielding (groin) who could return to training next week.
However striker Theo Robinson is set to face his former side having scored three goals in 11 appearances during his spell with Millwall in the club's first season back in the Championsip.
