Who's in, who's out

Lions manager Kenny Jackett will make minimal changes to his starting line up as The Lions aim to book their place in the FA Cup Quarter Finals with a Fifth Round win at Luton Town on Saturday.
Although there were no fresh injury concerns from last weekend's game at Blackpool, striker Benik Afobe is Cup-tied having played in the competition for Bolton Wanderers already this season. Likewise midfielder Martyn Woolford is unavailable having featured for Bristol City.
Jackett has a number of options to fill the vacant striking berth alongside Rob Hulse, with Andy Keogh, Dany N'Guessan and John Marquis - goalscoring hero of the Fourth Round victory over Aston Villa - all vying for a place in the starting XI.
The left wing slot is likely to see Liam Feeney brought back in, although Scott Malone is another option. 
On-loan Derby forward Nathan Tyson remains sidelined with ankle ligament damage, while injured midfielder Chris Taylor is back in training, but unlikely to be called into action just yet.
Meanwhile Luton boss Paul Buckle will be forced into making alterations with Steve McNulty, Simon Ainge, Scott Neilson and former Lions winger Dave Martin all Cup-tied, while Lathaniel Rowe-Turner is suspended.
Alex Lawless, who scored the winner against Wolves is available following a one-match ban, while Buckle could also bring in Scott Rendell after his goalscoring heroics at Carrow Road in the Fourth Round.
