Twenty-man squad named by The Lions

Liam Trotter has been included in a 20-man Millwall squad ahead of Saturday's FA Cup Semi-Final with Wigan Athletic.
Midfielder Trotts was sidelined for Tuesday night's home game against Sheffield Wednesday with a knee problem, but is in manager Kenny Jackett's squad and could be in contention for a place in the starting line-up.
The former Ipswich Town man has proved to be something of a lucky omen when it comes to Wembley appearances, having been on the winning Scunthorpe United side against Millwall in the 2009 Play-Off Final and then a key figure in The Lions side that beat Swindon Town just 12 months later to book the club's return to the second tier of English football.
Millwall's travelling party also includes winger James Henry, who looked sharp when he came on as a sub in midweek after five weeks out with knee ligament damage.
However fellow winger Martyn Woolford is Cup-tied along with on-loan Crystal Palace striker Jermaine Easter.
It's been a dream return to the ranks at The Den for striker Shaun Batt, who on Monday was recalled from a long spell at Leyton Orient, on Tuesday made only his second appearance of 2013 for the team as a sub on Saturday could be involved in an FA Cup Semi Final!
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has no injury concerns ahead of Saturday's Wembley showdown with his only real selection dilemma whether to partner James McArthur or Jordi Gomez with James McCarthy in central midfield and if Callum McManaman will be selected ahead of Franco di Santo.
Millwall squad: Forde, M.Taylor, Dunne, A.Smith, J.Smith, Lowry, Beevers, Shittu, Osborne, Abdou, Trotter, St Ledger, Saville, C.Taylor, Feeney, Hulse, Keogh, Tyson, Henry, Batt.

Wigan squad: Al Habsi, Boyce, Stam, Scharner, Caldwell, Golobart, Alcaraz, Figueroa, Beausejour, McArthur, McCarthy, Gomez, Espinoza, Maloney, McManaman, Kone, Di Santo, Henriquez.
