Preview: Blackpool vs. Millwall

ANDY Wilkinson has travelled with Millwall's squad to Blackpool having briefly returned to parent club Stoke City for treatment on a back injury.

The right-sided defender could return to the starting XI at Bloomfield Road in a move that would likely see Alan Dunne revert to centre half.

Lee Gregory (back) and Mark Beevers (ankle) face late fitness tests but Shaun Williams is suspended. New signing Paris Cowan-Hall is out with a calf strain.

Left back Dan Harding is set to make his debut after joining from Nottingham Forest, while Stefan Maierhofer could be involved if he receives international clearance.

Blackpool duo Jamie O'Hara and Darren O'Dea will start for the hosts after they signed contract extensions.

New signings Saer Sene and Grant Hall are both available.

    Was expecting quite a few new faces for this very important six pointer, but I think we are actually weaker than the last game with the loss of Malone( lots will disagree).
    Surely the scouts had done there work before January and these players should be with us now, what have we got so far a left back who is no better than Malone, an already injured winger and the man who is score all our goals the HOFF, very frustrating time been a lions fan at the moment!!

      to be fair i think that with Malone gone it will give Briggs the chance to step up and be counted, when i saw him against Bradford i thought that he had a very good game.

          @dpendet: Harding is a better defender than Malone no question..... probably doesn't offer as much going forward though

            @TheBermondseyBomber: Harding should be better for 2 reasons... 1. Experience.. and 2. It sounds like he actually 'wants' to play for us!
            I thought he was more of a traditional, defensive minded player like Wilkinson - but in his interview on lions player he said he considers himself to be an 'attacking full back' so we shall see..... COYL.
