Preview: Millwall vs. Wigan Athletic

JOS Hooiveld is Millwall's only injury concern ahead of tonight's meeting with Wigan at The Den.

The centre back, who missed Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Watford after picking up a knock in training, is "touch-and-go" according to interim manager Neil Harris.

Mark Beevers slotted in alongside Sid Nelson at centre half against the Hornets and will keep his place in the side if Hooiveld misses out.

Paris Cowan-Hall could make the bench after returning from an ankle injury but Harris also has widemen Magaye Gueye and Lee Martin available to him.

Carlos Edwards remains the club's only long-term absentee, with the right back on course to complete his 12-month rehabilitation from a severe knee problem in September.

Wigan are without Grant Holt (knee) and midfielder Emyr Huws (ankle) while Jermaine Pennant (tight hamstring) is a slight doubt.

Andrew Taylor and Don Cowie are added to the squad after short-term injuries.

    I hope Gueye starts the game this time, rather than leaving him on the bench to come on for the last 15 min. Tough game tonight but definitely winnable.

    Harris can leave lee martin at home as far as im concerned,he is just a show pony with his leg over's,he does a lot of chasing around and that's it,he does not use his pace enough, if he play's i hope he prove's me wrong .this is a must win game so i hope bomber gets it right with the team's balance.
    some people are knocking Harding but IMO he is getting better,also beaver's had a more than reasonable game against watford considering he had not played for a long time,Even though i knock Forde i must say he had a good game against Watford,so well done Forde keep it up.
    I gave a lift to three German's after the game,i asked them to give some honest comments',they said take away the two goal's and we were the better side untill we left ourselve's open chasing the game toward the end,O'Brien need's to look up more to see what is on,and if we played the Hof with more people playing off him we could have done better,
