Saturday team news

Latest from the camp

Millwall Ian Holloway insists that he will pick a team 'up for the cause' as The Lions go in search of vital Championship points in Saturday's crunch Den clash with promotion-chasing Brighton & HA (3pm).

Ollie held a lengthy post-match inquest last Saturday following a 1-0 defeat at fellow basement boys Barnsley - a loss that leaves The Lions perilously close to the drop zone with Charlton, Barnsley and Yeovil now breathing down.

However, with 14 games and 42 points to play for, there is still ample opportunity for the team to work their way up the table and boss Ollie expects his starting XI on Saturday to kick on and record only a second home win in seven starts.

Goalkeeper David Forde* expects to be available for selection after dislocating his finger in the game at Oakwell last weekend, although Richard Chaplow and Nicky Bailey remain sidelined with their respective calf and back injuries.

Brighton boss Oscar Garcia could hand new signing Jesse Lingard his debut, having signed the Manchester United frontman on loan yesterday. Lingard has already faced Millwall this season scoring the final goal during his loan spell at Birmingham City in the Blues 4-0 win at St Andrews.
