LOAN signing Nathan Tyson is set to make his debut for Millwall against Burnley on Saturday – providing the game passes a pitch inspection at 9am.

Snowfall is forecast in London overnight on Friday and, while undersoil heating should prevent the Den surface from freezing, safety and transport concerns could lead to a postponement.

If the match goes ahead, Tyson is expected to go straight into Kenny Jackett's starting line-up for the visit of the Clarets. Winger Martyn Woolford will make his home debut.



Defender Shane Lowry collected his tenth yellow card of the season against Bolton last weekend, meaning the Australian now serves a two-match generic lexapro complaints ban.

Jack Smith is expected to deputise at left-back with Alan Dunne set to return to the bench. Liam Feeney (hamstring), Chris Taylor (knee) and Scott Malone (back) are all sidelined.

Burnley look set to be without the services of leading marksman Charlie Austin ahead of their trip to South London, with the Championship’s top scorer struggling with a hamstring injury.



Young defender Kevin Long also misses out with an injury sustained in training last week although the Clarets are boosted by the return of midfielders Brian Stock and Chris McCann.

Striker Martin Paterson is available after overcoming a hamstring injury, while defender Ben Mee (knee) is sidelined.

    I hope Tyson starts well, as I can't see Hendo finding any goalscoring form soon.

    Fancy a sneaky one nil to the Lions, Tyson with the winner?
