Three missing for Ollie's Lions

Millwall boss Ian Holloway will be without goalkeeper David Forde for the visit of Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday evening (7.45pm).

The 34-year-old picked up a thigh injury in the first-half of the 1-0 win over Ipswich Town last time out, so Stephen Bywater is set to deputise between the sticks against his former club.

Jermaine Easter completes a three-match suspension following his straight red card in the FA Cup Third Round defeat against Southend, whilst Richard Chaplow is unlikely to be risked as he continues his recovery from a calf injury.

The Lions completed a deal to sign Shaun Williams from MK Dons yesterday morning, so Ollie could hand debuts both to the 27-year-old and to forward DJ Campbell, who signed on loan last week.

Stuart Gray oversees his first game in permanent charge of Wednesday, but will be without the services of striker Connor Wickham, who was yesterday recalled from his loan spell by parent club Sunderland. Wickham had been a revelation in his second loan spell with The Owls, scoring eight goals in 11 starts.

Keeper Chris Kirkland looks set to return between the sticks in place of Damian Martinez, but defender Joe Mattock will miss out following his sending off in Saturday's FA Cup win over Rochdale.
