Preview: Dover Athletic vs. Millwall

MILLWALL boss Neil Harris is taking a relatively strong squad to Dover, but it will be another opportunity for younger players to push for a place in the first-team squad.

Right-back James Brown, whom Harris has praised for the impact he has made in pre-season, should start at right-back.

Trialist striker Harry Smith is also likely to feature after he set up Millwall XI’s winner in their 2-1 win at Dulwich on Saturday.

Irish centre-back Paul Rooney will get another chance to impress after his summer move from Bohemians.

Elsewhere, Sid Nelson could replace Byron Wenster at centre-back, while Shane Ferguson is in line to start his first pre-season friendly fixture after his two assists in the 3-2 win at Crawley last weekend.
