Preview: Millwall vs. Sheffield Wednesday

MILLWALL will be without injured winger Lee Martin again when they take on Sheffield Wednesday tonight.

Martin missed Saturday's draw against Fulham with a foot problem and remains sidelined.

Ian Holloway says he is considering his options at right back, with Shaun Cummings (groin) ruled out, but Jimmy Abdou is expected to keep his place in the side.

Strikers Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Stefan Maierhofer and Ricardo Fuller are all vying for a starting berth after the Lions fired a flank against the Cottagers.

Paris Cowan-Hall and Carlos Edwards remain in the treatment room but Nicky Bailey is edging closer to a first-team return after playing 90 minutes for the U21s on Monday.

Wednesday are waiting to hear the outcome of goalkeeper Keiren Westwood's red card appeal after he was sent off against Derby.

Westwood will be suspended unless the decision is overturned, with Chris Kirkland poised to replace him.

Jose Semedo is expected to feature after overcoming a toe injury but Glen Loovens (ankle) and Sergiu Bus (groin) are unavailable.

    The Hof or Gregory upfront with GTF just behind. Fab on the right and Woolford on the left... Let's score some bloody goals please people!

      @Bexley_Lion: I thought Woolford was woeful on Saturday lost ball on countless occasion and walked around ball watching way too often, he should be dropped as didn't look interested. Think GTF should play instead and think Hof has to start as we had no one to hold up the ball on Saturday, and if he does would like to see O'Brien given another chance as he looked lively..

      @Bexley_Lion: Did you see the size of GTF he ain't going to last 30 mins never mind 60.He had some lovely touches and is obviously quality but bet Gueye is thinking WTF if GTF in the team. GTF after about 10 mins had developed the Nicky Bailey point and shout stance ie can you run over there as I am to fat and unfit.

        @Kinet: Ha agree he does look a bit of a tubs but in fairness if you look at photos throughout his career he has always seemed to look that way...? Gueye must be double confused, think it was a strange call by Holloway as he had been playing well but seems the main theme of his rein the starting 11 rarely stays the same?!

    Lets get the Hoff back and get Gregory out he couldn't hit a barn door. Plus we need the Hoff defending set plays especially with that lump Nuhiu , with Dunne at CB we are pretty short as a team.

      @Kinet: what planet are you on, not this one, have you been to the Den since Hoff signed in January, his crap, can't jump, hold the ball or keep up with play. Think you been watching Stoke City in disguise, Hoff is no Peter Crouch.

    Holloway without Martin you loose pace play the the H off up front from the start and create loose ball for players to run on to.

    Expect another shake-up tonight. Martinez will start. Gregory on the bench. Fuller and GTF to come on for the last 30 seconds..

    Like ive said on previous posts, Gregory doesnt deserve to start!! What does he bring ? no pace, No strength and no height. Cant score goals and possesses no real threat to opposition defence.

      @Pattyberry:

      Can't agree with that. Gregory looks like the best finisher we have (not too hard I'll admit), it's just that we don't get him any chances. He had one on Saturday from Jimmy's cross, which was pretty difficult.

      He needs someone else up front with him, and 2 wingers who can cross a ball. Woolford was terrible on Saturday, lost the ball too often, drifted in wide for no reason leaving Harding all by himself on the left.

      I'd like to see Gregory with Fuller up front (has experience and can win the ball when he tries), Fab on the left, O'Brien on the right, Williams and Tonge in the middle.

    I have not got a scooby doo what holloway team selection will be tonight. Sometime I think he doesn't know himself . I just want to say a big thank you to a loyal servant Jimmy Abdou. Yes I know he make mistakes. Runs around like a school boy. But he is what makes a millwall fan applaud ,,,,,he's PASSION . Good luck to the boys tonight.

    Even if Kieren Westwood dosn't get his red overturned it won't make the slightest bit of difference who they put in his place. The only chance we have of scoring is if they don't play a keeper at all, and even then we would struggle
