Saturday team news

Ian Holloway aims to hit the ground running and get his Millwall career off to a winning start when he takes The Lions to Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Holloway was confirmed as Millwall's new manager on Tuesday and immediately said 'we're doing two of the worst things you can possibly do in football - conceding too many goals and not scoring enough."

Having taken charge of two full training sessions this week, Ollie knows that his first priority will be to end a six-match win-less streak in which the team have picked up just one point and also suffered a 4-1 FA Cup defeat at Southend United last weekend.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, are just five points off the Play-Off places after a good festive period that saw them lose just once in their last five games.

Holloway has already confirmed that he knows the team he is going to select for Saturday's match at the John Smith's Stadium and he will make changes from the side which started at Southend last Saturday, one of which is enforced as striker Jermaine Easter is suspended following his red card at Roots Hall.

Scott McDonald - who scored three times against Huddersfield whilst playing for Middlesbrough last season, could replace Easter whilst skipper Paul Robinson, who returned to training after a thigh problem, could return in defence.

Left-back Scott Malone (ribs) and winger Liam Feeney (hamstring) look set to miss out again, but midfielder Liam Trotter is also close to returning from a knee injury sustained in the Boxing Day defeat at Watford.

Huddersfield, boss Mark Robins has a number of injury concerns going into the match with James Vaughan (ankle) and Joel Lynch (hip) both doubts, while Peter Clarke is out as he recovers from knee injury.

Matt Crooks is nearing a return to training following ankle surgery, while Jake Carroll remains sidelined with the same injury.
