Who's in, who's out

The Lions resume their Championship campaign after the international break, with a tricky home fixture against Derby County who currently boast a 100% away record this season.

Steve Lomas' men are still looking for their first three point haul and will take the positives from consecutive away draws at Sheffield Wednesday and Brighton into this game.

The manager has strengthened his squad with the addition of striker Martyn Waghorn on loan from Leicester City, former Rams full back Paul Connolly on a short term deal, and the extended loan of midfielder Shaun Derry from QPR. 

Steve Morison has been back in training this week following his hernia operation but a decision has yet to be taken on his readiness for a return to first team action. 

Scott McDonald (knee) and Andy Keogh (groin) have been troubled by minor niggles of late, while Jermaine Easter (hamstring) and Jack Smith (thigh) look unlikely to feature. 

Alan Dunne is forced to sit this game out through suspension following his sending off at the Amex Stadium. 

Former Lions loanee Adam Smith, is in contention for a place in the starting line-up against his former club, having joined the Pride Park outfit on a season-long loan from Spurs in the summer. 

Jeff Hendrick (ankle) will be missing from the Rams' line-up and Nigel Clough will asses the seven squad members who have been away on international duty this week before making the trip south. 

In the corresponding fixture last season goals from Liam Feeney and Andy Keogh helped Millwall to a 2-1 victory on 10th November 2012. Look out for brief interviews with Martyn Waghorn, Paul Connolly and Steve Lomas on Millwall's official YouTube channel - MillwallFCofficial

Full interviews with all three can be viewed on Lions Player.
