Saturday's team news

30 August 2013

Who's in, who's out

Millwall boss Steve Lomas will decide whether keeper David Forde (knee) and striker Jermaine Easter (hamstring) are ready to be recalled to the squad for Saturday's trip to the Amex Stadium to face Brighton & Hove Albion.

Forde, who had a knee operation following the opening-day defeat to Yeovil Town, has been back in full training this week and is desperate to play, but the manager has to weigh up the risks.

"We'll see how he is at the end of the week," said Steve. "With a fortnight's break before the next game we don't want to take any chances. The same goes for Jermaine."

Liam Trotter, who played for an hour and scored in last Friday's U21 Development Squad game against Swansea as he continues his own recovery from a knee operation, is unlikely to feature, while Steve Morison is back in light training but will be targeting a return in mid to late September.

The Lions made six changes for the midweek Cup clash at Nottingham Forest, and a number of those who came into the side will have staked a claim for inclusion again at the Amex.

However, the likes of Alan Dunne, Shane Lowry, Danny Shittu, James Henry and loanee Shaun Derry will all be back in contention after they were left out of Wednesday's Cup clash which The Lions lost 2-1 after extra time.
