MILLWALL are handing a trial to former Coventry City winger Kyle Spence.

The 18-year-old has been named to start in the U21 Professional Development League 2 fixture against Leeds United this afternoon.

Spence, who was capped by Scotland at U16 level, was offered a professional contract by the Sky Blues last season but will now hope to impress boss Justin Skinner in the match at The Den.

Another trialist, Fejiri Okenabirhie, who scored in the 3-0 win over Ipswich at the end of August, will start on the bench.

First-team squad regulars Jack Powell, John Marquis and Paris Cowan-Hall have also been named in the starting XI.

      @John: could be a multitude of reasons, none of which affect our decision. I wouldn't judge him because he was let go. We have let go of a few good players in our past, Michael Hector being a good example.
