KENNY Jackett is set to welcome back three players from injury for Millwall's trip to Bolton on Saturday, with new signing Martyn Woolford also set to feature.

Winger Woolford signed from Bristol City on Wednesday and could be in line to make his debut on the left side of midfield, with Liam Feeney (hamstring) and Chris Taylor (knee) both injured.

Captain Danny Shittu, who was rested as a precaution against Preston North End with a dead leg last weekend, will return to the heart of Jackett's defence at the Reebok Stadium.



Midfielder Liam Trotter also sat out the FA Cup tie against the Lillywhites with a back niggle, but has trained this week and is expected to start.

Andy Keogh has been given an extended rest to allow a broken toe to fully heal and is now able to return to action, although he is likely to be named amongst the substitutes.

Bolton could hand new signing Craig Davies his debut after he completed his move from Barnsley this week for a reported fee of £300,000.



The striker will compete with former Lion Kevin Davies, David N'gog and Marvin Sordell for a starting position up front.

Striker Benik Afobe is unavailable with a hamstring injury and the Trotters will also be without defenders David Wheater (knee) and Matt Mills (thigh).

Highly-rated Mark Davies is sidelined with a shoulder injury, while Stuart Holden and Joshua Vela are both recovering from long-term knee problems.

      Jackett says on OS that Taylor is probably out till the end of next month, so Malone will probably play there.

    Holden may get some action this weekend. He did 65 min in a reserve game this week. I would like to see him match up against Abdu.
