Manager Neil Harris expecting a 'passionate' Gillingham clash

The Millwall manager has shot a warning to his squad ahead of tonight's match with Gillingham, saying no player is safe from dropping out of the side if they fail to perform.

Neil Harris has a fully-fit squad at his disposal and expects competition for places to heat up in the New Year.

"When players come in and take their opportunities they expect to stay in the side," Harris told "but when you have a healthy squad then there is a line of players knocking on my door.

"It's about striking that balance between having a settled side but also putting people back into the squad when they are fresh.  

"I imagine there will be minimal changes to the side that beat Swindon Town tonight but I do have options. I rested a couple of players and now they are physically looking better for it," he added.

The Lions will be aiming for three wins on the spin but are wary of a 'dangerous' Gills outfit that are seeking to extend their unbeaten run to three matches.

"Gillingham always lift their game when they play us. It will be aggressive, fast and a match we are looking forward to," he added.

Gills boss Justin Edinburgh has no new injury concerns following the 1-1 draw with Peterborough on Boxing Day, where his side scored a stoppage-time equaliser through on loan Bournemouth defender Baily Cargill.
