ANDY Keogh and Chris Taylor will undergo late fitness tests ahead of Millwall's match against Barnsley at The Den on Saturday.

Keogh did not feature in the 2-2 draw with Brighton on Tuesday after failing to receive a painkilling injection on his broken toe before the match but could be available for selection against the Tykes.

Winger Taylor was forced off in the second-half at the Amex Stadium with a knee injury and the former Oldham man will be assessed prior to kick-off.

But the Lions are boosted by the return of midfielder Jimmy Abdou from suspension and forward Darius Henderson is fully fit after making his first appearance since November against the Seagulls.

Barnsley will be without attacking trio Akos Buzsaky, Emile Sinclair and Reuben Noble-Lazarus for their trip to South London.

Buzsaky is unavailable after sustaining a hamstring injury in a derby defeat to Sheffield Wednesday. Noble-Lazarus (ankle) and Sinclair (dead leg) are also sidelined.

Buzsaky’s absence could pave the way for a return to the side for Jim O’Brien, while David Perkins and Marlon Harewood are pushing for starts.

However, on-loan Chelsea midfielder Jacob Mellis is in the treatment room with a dead-leg.

    I don't want to jinx it as Barnsley are quite dodgy, but I feel a thrashing coming! Looking at form we should see Barnsley off quite comfortably. Gutted I can't make the game but win, lose or draw, I'm sure the boys will put in 100% and give it their all. COYL. Let's beat that measly 13 unbeaten streak 😉
