Skipper set for Saturday return

Danny Shittu is hoping to be back in the starting line-up for Saturday's trip to the Riverside following the injury and illness that has seen the skipper miss the last two games.
In addition, Nathan Tyson could be added to the squad after recovering from the ankle injury sustained on his Lions' debut against Burnley a month ago.
Shane Lowry will be forced to sit this one out following his sending off against Peterborough in midweek, but Kenny Jackett will be pleased to have a number of selection options as he seeks a winning formula in the League.
Bizarrely, since beating Bristol City at The Den on New Year's Day, Millwall have taken just one point from six League games but have won three FA Cup ties during the same period.
In spite of Lowry's absence, the manager has cover, with the return of Shittu allowing Mark Beevers, Karleigh Osborne or Scott Malone to slot in at left back.
Tyson's return would bolster an attack that has been short of goals in recent Championship outings, with James Henry's midweek strike only The Lions' second in their last five League encounters.
