Saturday team news

31 January 2014

Who's in, who's out, who's a doubt

Millwall boss Ian Holloway will make at least two changes to his starting XI when free-scoring Reading visit The Den on Saturday (3pm).

Defender Shane Lowry starts a four-game ban after he was sent off in the dying minutes of Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday, receiving an additional one match suspension because it was the second time he had been dismissed this season.

Mark Beevers, who has been on the bench for the last three Championship games, is set to step in alongside skipper Danny Shittu, although Paul Robinson and new signing Shaun Williams are also options to fill the vacant berth.

Andy Keogh's transfer deadline day loan move to Blackpool frees up a slot on the right side up front. There are a number of alternatives available for boss Ollie including Martyn Woolford, Liam Feeney, Scott McDonald and Jermaine Easter, who has now completed his three-match ban.

Stephen Bywater will continue to deputise for keeper David Forde (thigh) whilst Richard Chaplow remains sidelined with a calf injury.

A trio of youngsters - Denzil Gerrar (goalkeeper) and midfielders Jack Powell and Fred Onyedinma - are also included in the squad.

Reading boss Nigel Adkins looks set to name an unchanged team for the fifth game in succession, although Danny Guthrie is in contention for a return to the squad after recovering from a calf injury.
