Millwall manager has Abdou dilemma ahead of Owls clash

MILLWALL boss Ian Holloway is considering his options at right back ahead of tonight's home clash with Sheffield Wednesday.

Jimmy Abdou filled in for the injured Shaun Cummings against Fulham at the weekend and helped the Lions keep a clean sheet.

But Holloway says there are other candidates in his squad who may be better-suited to facing the Owls.

"Jimmy was right for Fulham because I thought they were going to play a diamond," he said.

"He never lets us down and he's been training at right back over the past couple of weeks just in case.

"Fulham didn't have an out-and-out winger so Jimmy could go forward and get some crosses in. I'm going to have to think again for our next game.

"I don't want to move Alan Dunne to right back again so I have to look at Justin Hoyte and Josh Siafa to see if I can utilise them. I might have to.

"It's all about balance and who else can you actually get now [on loan]? That's the problem."

    Don't you dare f***ing drop him for Hoyte! Jimmy did a great job and was one of the best players Saturday!

      @coldblowlane87: Totally agree with that comment, Jimmy may not be the best player but he always gives it his all and his heart is in the badge, not in the money unlike a lot of other players....Hoyte etc...

      @coldblowlane87: Beevers did a good job at LB at Forest and then got ruined by Scannel for Huddersfield. You play players in there right positions. Jimmy was missing from every Fulham attack out wide he kept coming inside. If a wanger goes out side he will get ruined and we will loose, you don't really want that for Jimmy do you. He's not a right back. Hoyte is Id play Hoyte and we can all lynch him if he don't put a performance in. It's about time he started repaying us.
