Team news ahead of Millwall v Coventry

9 September 2016

Read the latest from both camps

Millwall can call upon the services of recent addition Calum Butcher when Coventry City visit The Den on Saturday (3pm).

The central midfielder, who made his Lions debut as a substitute during the 3-1 win over Chesterfield late last month, had been struggling with a slight back injury but has trained this week and is fit for selection against The Sky Blues.

Jimmy Abdou, Shane Ferguson and Kris Twardek were on international duty for last Saturday's draw with Bradford City but come back into contention this weekend.

Striker Lee Gregory has been sidelined with a hip problem and is doubtful for the visit of Tony Mowbray's side. The match will come too soon for Shaun Hutchinson, who is recovering from a hamstring injury.

Long-term absentee Shaun Cummings is back in training but will feature for Millwall's U23 squad in the coming weeks before being considered for a first team return.

Reports in Coventry suggest that Mowbray will recall veteran defender Sam Ricketts to his backline as his side look for their first League win of the season. That could be at the expense of teenager Cian Harries, though Ricketts could fill any of four defensive positions.

Deadline day loan signing Andre Wright, who played against The Lions for West Brom in the Checkatrade Trophy, will be pushing for a start along with experienced striker Marcus Tudgay. Both came off the bench in Coventry's defeat to Fleetwood Town last time out. Dan Agyei and Marvin Sordell filled the two forward positions against The Cod Army but Mowbray may look to rotate as he searches for a winning formula.

Andy Rose is out with a knee injury.
