Saturday's team news

Robbo and Trotts to be assessed

Caretaker boss Neil Harris, talking to Lions Player, says it is "touch and go" whether Paul Robinson and Liam Trotter will be fit for Saturday's FA Cup with Budweiser Third Round tie at Southend United (3pm).

Skipper Robbo has a slight knee and thigh knock and has been missing since the Boxing Day defeat to Watford. The same applies to midfielder Trotter, who picked up a knee injury against The Hornets, but Chopper and Scott Fitzgerald have no fresh injury concerns following Wednesday's League defeat to Leicester.

Southend head into the game on the back of a 2-1 win over Portsmouth in League Two on New Year's Day, and ex-Millwall defender Mark Phillips will hope to retain his place against his former side. Marc Laird, another former Lion who made 92 appearances for Millwall between 2008 and 2011, hasn't featured since Boxing Day, but will hope to impress boss Phil Brown enough to hand him a starting berth at Roots Hall.
