Team news ahead of Chesterfield v Millwall

26 August 2016

Read the latest from both camps

Millwall are sweating on the fitness of forward trio Fred Onyedinma, Aiden O'Brien and Lee Gregory heading into Saturday's trip to play Chesterfield.

Young duo Onyedinma and O'Brien both limped off during Tuesday's EFL Cup tie against Nottingham Forest, while Gregory's most recent involvement was during The Lions' 2-1 win over Sheffield United last Saturday.

Neil Harris will give all three as long as possible to prove their fitness but if they fail to make it then Steve Morison could well play on his own up front in a different formation against The Spireites.

Yesterday's signing of Calum Butcher from Burton Albion has handed Millwall a boost in the midfield area and the 25-year-old looks set to be included in the matchday squad for the first time. Jimmy Abdou and Ben Thompson started Tuesday's Cup tie but Shaun Williams, who came off the bench to score a wondergoal against The Reds, may well come back into the first Xl.

Shaun Hutchinson and Shaun Cummings are both unavailable for The Lions this weekend.

Other than Dan Jones' potential absence, Chesterfield boss Danny Wilson has a fully fit squad to choose from at the Proact Stadium on Saturday.
