MILLWALL boss Kenny Jackett could hand a debut to new signing Rob Hulse against Barnsley on Tuesday night after the striker sealed his loan switch from QPR.

Hulse has travelled to Yorkshire to link up with his new teammates and goes straight into the Lions squad for the match at Oakwell, although he is likely to start on the bench.

Millwall are boosted by the return of defender Shane Lowry, who has recovered from a calf injury in addition to completing a two-match suspension, and he could replace Mark Beevers at left-back.



However, Jackett could be tempted to stick with the same back four that played against Aston Villa last week, which would mean Karleigh Osborne retains his place at the heart of defence.

Winger Martyn Woolford, who was cup-tied for Friday night’s cup victory, and Scott Malone (back) both return and are likely to be named amongst the substitutes.

Striker Nathan Tyson remains sidelined with an ankle injury while Chris Taylor (knee) is nearing a return to first-team action.



Full-back Adam Smith plays the last match of his loan spell from Tottenham, although the Lions are optimistic of keeping him for longer.

Jason Scotland is expected to make his debut for Barnsley tonight after signing a deal until the end of the season, having been released by Ipswich Town earlier this month.

Forward Chris Dagnall, who has netted three goals in his last three games, is rated as doubtful having sustained a bruised foot in the Tykes' 1-0 FA cup victory against Hull City an the weekend.

Defenders Bobby Hassell and Scott Wiseman also picked up knocks in the same fixture and are likely to be assessed prior to kick-off.

Defender Jim McNulty (hamstring) and midfielder Stephen Dawson (ankle) remain the only other two notable absentees.

    Knowing our luck a bigger team will swoop in and benefit from our hard work and time invested in a player once again. I will be very pleasantly surprised if we were to get an extension.

    We are in 9th, they are in 23rd so obviously we will win 0-3.

    Not the case at all. A cold, dark, wet Tuesday night in Barnsley is anything but a foregone conclusion, in fact it's about as tough as it gets imo.

    We are practically safe barring a total melt down. Lets forget about the play offs, Settle for anything around mid table, concentrate on the cup and making enough cash on top of what JB is already willing to spend so we can have a proper bash at it next season.

      Any idea how much is in the kitty, cause the loan signings were getting hmmmmm if we have the doe then surely thats enough to tempt a top fringe player to say ill give it a whirl at the Wall and gain some valuable experience, instead of sitting on his backside keeping a bench warm.
