Chopper ponders a change of shape against Steven Pressley's men

Millwall boss Neil Harris has hinted at tactical alterations to combat the threat of Fleetwood Town in Tuesday night's game at Highbury Stadium (7.45pm).

The Lions are looking to stretch their unbeaten run in all competitions to 10 games but face a tough test against Steven Pressley's side, who will go into the match on a high following an emphatic 5-1 win over Swindon Town on Saturday.

And Harris, who has no fresh injury concerns, admits that he is thinking about tweaking his formation against The Cod Army.

"You have to be respectful to a team that scored five at the weekend and that will certainly be the case," he said.

"They play a different style of football to us so I have to consider that when thinking about team selection and certainly a change of shape comes into my mind up against their formation."

Saturday's 4-1 win over Colchester United was a third straight victory for Millwall and Harris says that his players are relishing every game that comes their way at the moment.

"If you're winning games then you always look forward to the next fixture," he added.

"Straight away after Colchester the boys were asking about the Fleetwood team, who has played for them, how they play and what they do.

"We had a recovery day on Sunday and we will finish our preparations off on Tuesday in time for the game.

"Fleetwood are coming off the back of a good victory so they will have their tails up and will be looking forward to the game. But so are we - we're nine unbeaten and we are looking to extend that run."
