Tonight's team news

Latest from the Lions camp

Millwall head to sixth-placed Leicester City for this evening's televised game at the King Power Stadium determined to pick up some valuable league points.
Whilst Kenny Jackett's side have excelled in the FA Cup this season, the Championship form has dipped since the turn of the year with only three wins in the last 11 starts.
However Millwall's record against Leicester has been pretty reasonable in recent meetings and The Lions go into action aiming to record a fourth successive victory against the Foxes.
"We usually put on good performances and do very well in televised games," said Kenny.
"It is a very tight division this year; we are five points off third from bottom on 47 points with 10 games left and have still got a lot to do.
We've got four games coming up between now and the FA Cup Semi Final and two of those are in the next four days against Leicester and then Ipswich on Monday.
This Easter weekend is an opportunity to pick up points. We want to be moving away from the foot of the table and not get dragged in to a relegation battle so it is better to pick up those points sooner rather than later."
The Lions boss will again be without the services of centre half Mark Beevers, who is unavailable through suspension, whilst Karleigh Osborne, who deputised at Charlton, remains sidelined with the hamstring injury that restricted his appearance at The Valley to just 17 minutes.
Shane Lowry is expected to start alongside Danny Shittu in the heart of defence with Adam Smith continuing at left-back, just as he finished the game at Charlton.
Up front Jermaine Easter did well scoring with his first touch after coming on as a sub for his second Millwall 'debut' at Charlton, and will be hoping to earn a place in the starting line-up.
Scott Malone and Liam Feeney have also been included in the travelling squad for tonight's game.
