Shuffling the pack

19 April 2013

Saturday team news

Kenny Jackett will have to reshuffle his defensive pack as Millwall head to Huddersfield Town looking for a win that could secure Championship status for The Lions for another season.
A win for Jackett's men coupled with anything but a victory for Barnsley at Nottingham Forest would make The Lions safe.
However with left-back Shane Lowry ruled out for three games, Jackett is going to be forced to make changes to the team that beat Watford on Tuesday night.
Lowry picked up his 15th yellow card of the campaign in the second half of that game for handball and now misses the Huddersfield, Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forest matches.
Adam Smith could switch from his right-back berth to fill the gap on the left with Alan Dunne returning to the starting XI.
Other options include Mark Beevers moving from centre half to left back with Karleigh Osborne partnering Danny Shittu in the heart of defence.
Midfielders Sean St Ledger (ankle) and Liam Trotter (knee) both remain sidelined having sat out the Watford game whilst Chris Taylor, who hobbled off with a groin injury in the first half of that match, is ruled out.
Martyn Woolford is likely to deputise on the left flank at the John Smith's Stadium tomorrow.
Millwall's travelling squad is as follows: Forde, M.Taylor, Dunne, A. Smith, Shittu, Beevers, Osborne, J. Smith, Abdou, Saville, Woolford, Wright, Batt, Easter, Tyson, Hulse, Keogh, Feeney, Henry.
