Latest from The Lions camp

Chris Taylor and Shane Lowry both remain sidelined Millwall go into tonight's home clash with Blackburn Rovers knowing that a win will secure the club's Championship status for another year.
Winger Taylor was missing from the side beaten at Huddersfield on Saturday with a groin injury whilst left-back Lowry serves the second of a three-match ban this evening.
Midfielders Liam Trotter (knee) and Sean St Ledger (ankle) both remain doubtful with their respective injuries.
Whilst The Lions didn't sustain any fresh injuries at the weekend, manager Jackett could be tempted to make a defensive switch, moving Mark Beevers back to his preferred central position alongside Danny Shittu in the heart of the back four with Adam Smith switching to left-back and Alan Dunne returning to fill the right-back berth.
Blackburn caretaker boss Gary Bowyer is expected to welcome back both Grant Hanley and Colin Kazim-Richards.
The duo have missed the last two games through suspension but are now likely to earn immediate recalls as Rovers battle against successive relegations.
Jackett's men need three points from their last four games - three of which are at The Den - to secure a fourth successive campaign in the Championship whilst tonight's visitors will be determined to end a run of six consecutive defeats away from Ewood Park.
