All you need to know about Saturday's game
"They have some real quality with the football and a desire about them to win games. They will be a much different team to the one we faced at The Den earlier in the season.
"We will have to match the work rate we showed on Monday and need every bit of confidence that we've shown in the last few months to get a positive result."
"I came off on the winning side a couple of times (in derby matches playing for West Ham) and scored a winner at Upton Park once. There was always a fantastic atmosphere and they were always proper games, when you were playing against people like Terry Hurlock.
A trio of Millwall players return from international duty this week to bolster Neil Harris' squad for Saturday's match.
Jimmy Abdou (Comoros), Shane Ferguson (Northern Ireland) and David Forde (Republic of Ireland) all re-joined the group in the latter stages of this week having missed The Lions' two matches at Bradford City and Monday's home win over Burton Albion.
Manager Neil Harris has not reported any fresh injury concerns following the Burton game, and instead faces a selection headache of the nicest order.
Skipper Tony Craig enjoyed his first taste of match action since last October with a solid 45 minutes against Bristol City in an U21s Professional Development League game on Monday.
TC continues his steady return to full match fitness with the U21s at Cardiff City on Friday afternoon with a return to the senior squad not yet pencilled in.
Shaun Cummings (knee) remains a long-term injury.
Colchester United boss Kevin Keen is sweating on the fitness of full-backs Joe Edwards and Nicky Shorey, both of whom took knocks in U's surprise 1-0 win at Coventry City in midweek. The duo are rated 'doubtful' but are expected to be available for selection.
Former Lions midfielder Owen Garvan is likely to feature for U's, who also have former Millwall players Matthew Briggs and Sam Walker in their ranks.
