Chopper looks ahead to Saturday's match at The Den

Millwall manager Neil Harris admits that he has "a lot to consider" when it comes to team selection for Saturday's visit of Chesterfield.

The Lions return to action at The Den following last weekend's hard-fought draw away to Scunthorpe United, during which Jordan Archer and Ben Thompson impressed on their full League debuts.

Fellow Academy graduates Sid Nelson and Fred Onyedinma also performed well against The Iron and Harris says that encouraging recent displays from some of his squad's younger players have given him food for thought going into Saturday's game.

"Aiden O'Brien, who is almost back to full fitness, comes into the mix as well," he said. 

"The young lads have done extremely well. We all want to see a young and vibrant side with a good mix of senior players also, so it's getting that blend right.

"It certainly worked well at Scunthorpe and there is a lot to consider before Saturday's game, which is a slightly different test against Chesterfield (with us) being at home."

After a full week of training at Calmont Road, Harris believes The Lions will be suitably refreshed come kick-off time against Dean Saunders' squad. 

"It's been nice to have a free week to work on a few things to get the boys into some sort of routine and rhythm.

"(The Scunthorpe game) took a lot out of the boys so the rest has done them the world of good as well without a midweek game.

"We're refreshed and ready to go."
