MILLWALL manager Neil Harris will look to give his players a full 90 minutes in the final pre-season friendly.

The Lions boss will be stepping up preparations for the club’s League One opener against Shrewsbury on August 8.

Millwall will be without striker Aiden O’Brien (ankle) and midfielder Kris Twardek (toe) for the visit of the Portuguese top flight new-boys.

Lee Gregory, Lee Martin and Paris Cowan-Hall are expected to once again be involved after making their comeback from injury in last week’s win at Stevenage.

Academy graduates Jamie Philpot, Jack Powell, Sid Nelson and Ben Thompson will once again look to play some part on Saturday afternoon.

C.D Tondela could have new signing Luis Alberto available. The 31-year-old signed from Japanese outfit Kashima Antlers for a nominal fee last week.

Tondela could have former Port Vale youth Matt Jones in the squad for the friendly at The Den.

The 29-year-old signed on loan earlier this month fromTondela's Primeira Liga rivals Belenenses.

    I wish people would stop going on about getting a striker,cause it probably will not happen,yes it is frustrating when you see other clubs doing business but what do you expect. I dont have a clue about our finances but it seems clear we can not pay the sort of doe that people think we should for the type of players available,if this is due to bad management at boardroom level then that needs to be addressed,if its down to us as a club not turning over sufficient revenue then what can we do, apart from being taken over by a rich oil baron which is not going to happen. So lets just get on with supporting what we have and stop dreaming about players who are on 18 grand a week. Lets all just get behind what is in my opinion the last true, real,proper working class football club in London.

    Why do people want the chairman to go? who would replace him that actually cares for the club? maybe an oil magnet, Mr Alfyed or a euro lottery winner could buy him out but would they be any more committed than Mr B?
    Personally I think we're lucky to have him.

    if you don't think we're lucky to have Mr B as chairman and I presume the 3 dislikers are amongst those that don't, to them I put these questions, any ideas on a replacement? What should he be doing that he isn't or hasn't been doing? Do you think he should take his eye off of his business's and focus 100% on Millwall? Don't just dislike, post your thoughts and ideas so I can get an understanding as to why because I don't presume I am right it's just my opinion and what you have to say may well change my mind.
    kind regards. I.K.I.A,I.S.I.A. I'm Millwall til I die.
