Harris hoping for return of duo against The Saddlers

Millwall boss Neil Harris hopes to have Calum Butcher and Harry Smith available for selection for Wednesday night's Sky Bet League One clash with Walsall.

The pair missed last Sunday's Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round win over Watford through injury, but the manager is optimistic about their inclusion against The Saddlers.

Shaun Hutchinson, meanwhile, will look to be available for Saturday's visit to Coventry City.

"It will be pleasing to welcome back two of the lads who missed Watford with slight niggles in Calum Butcher and Harry Smith," Harris said.

"Shaun Hutchinson is just behind those in terms of his recovery, so we're looking more towards the weekend with him.

"Three games in six days is a tough ask for the players, but I'm sure with the form we're in, everybody wants to be playing and to not lose their place in the team.

"However, I do have to consider that these are big games and we need to keep everyone as fresh as we possible can."

With The Lions having claimed a pair of Premier League scalps in their last two home games, The Den is sure to be rocking when The Saddlers come to town.
