Preview: Millwall vs. Huddersfield Town

MILLWALL will make an eleventh-hour decision on the fitness of Lee Martin ahead of tomorrow's clash with Huddersfield Town at The Den.

Martin, who was forced off after 15 minutes against Nottingham Forest with heavily bruised ribs, was able to resume light training on Thursday.

But the Lions will continue to monitor the winger's condition right up until kick-off.

Even if the 27-year-old is passed fit, he may only get a spot on Ian Holloway's bench following the impressive performance of the side at the City Ground.

Ed Upson replaced Martin after his injury and he slotted into a three-man midfield alongside Jimmy Abdou and Shaun Williams to good effect.

Star man Diego Fabbrini, who had begun proceedings in the no.10 role, flourished after being moved out to a wider position.

Lee Gregory made an impact as second-half susbtitute against Forest and could be rewarded with a place in the starting XI – as could match-winner Ricardo Fuller.

Dan Harding, who was not allowed to face his parent club, is available for selection but Holloway could keep faith with Mark Beevers after he helped to keep a clean sheet.

New signings Michael Tonge and Jordan Archer will be hoping to make the match-day squad of 18.

But Paris Cowan-Hall (knee), Nicky Bailey (calf), Carlos Edwards (knee) and Sid Nelson (suspended) are definitely ruled out.

Huddersfield could be without Joel Lynch, Tommy Smith and Jonathan Hogg.

However, Town boss Chris Powell has received a boost with the news that top-scorer Nahki Wells (foot) and goalkeeper Alex Smithies (illness) are able to feature.

Deadline-day arrival Ishmael Miller could make his debut.

    Leave Martin at home, we are genuinely better without him! I think we will win tomorrow and by a few goals which is the first time in who knows how long!

    Don't know why we're worrying about Martin being fit, Upson is far more effective.

    The reason we have been so filth this season is because we continuously change our back line. I went forest and Beevers played class considering he was up against probably one of the standout wingers in our league in Antonio but people on here are still saying Harding should start when lets get it straight the geezer has been bang average. How can you change that winning team with the exception of maierhofer. Some people ain't got a scooby.

    I don't see the games, only the highlights each week so I'm a s*** judge but I'm still a believer in the big hoff, just got this feelin he,l create sum havoc with some good blokes around him, fabrinni looks like he,l also get on the regular highlights reel and I hope the team can become more n more settled each week.. Just hope the boys have the right attitude to get the 3 points and start to get us back on track. Sounds like it,l be a cold 1. More whiskey!! Cheers all.

      @grassgrower: I was at forest and the hof in my opinion was dog s***. He rarely jumped and when he did win a header it was such a shock to our players that no one was on the end of it, cue the hof flapping his arms about and moaning to the bench. He has a lot to do to win me over

    It's all well and good plugging up the defence but we need to be sharper up top or else this solid defence won't save them all and well leak in goals and gradually loose confidence and b back to square one or worse. Hopefully we can get something out of this game and get to the loan window unscathed and let's see if Kane's words help us get the firepower we critically need to survive. Not being negative but it's one problem down one to go.

    Holloway has as much said that he wants a settled team, performance at Forest says no change to that line up

    Just watching Dundee v Celtic, the No 5 for Dundee looks and plays like Dunney so he won't play today.
