MILLWALL welcome back duo Martyn Woolford and Benik Afobe to the first-team fold for their clash against Peterborough at The Den on Tuesday night.

Woolford and Afobe were ineligible for Saturday’s FA Cup victory against Luton Town but are back in the squad as the Lions turn their attention to league matters.

However, captain Danny Shittu remains a doubt after being ruled out of the trip to Kenilworth Road with an ankle injury sustained in training last week.



The problem is not thought to be a serious one but Shittu is rated as doubtful to face the Posh and subsequently Karleigh Osborne is expected to continue in the centre of defence.

Danny N’Guessan, John Marquis and Liam Feeney will be looking for further first-team involvement after run-outs against Luton on Saturday.

Winger Chris Taylor returned to training last week after a knee ligament injury but Tuesday's match comes too soon for the former Oldham winger.



Nathan Tyson (ankle) and Paul Robinson (groin) remain sidelined.

Peterborough travel to the The Den boosted by the return of a trio of players as they look to build on last week's impressive home victory over Leicester City.

Defenders Kgosi Ntlhe (ankle) and Craig Alcock (knock) both return, while young frontman Jaanai Gordon-Hutton will be pushing for a place in the travelling squad.

The Posh are, however, without on-loan Tottenham winger Alex Pritchard, who suffered an ankle injury in the win over the Foxes ten days ago.

    If only we were as well off across the pitch as we are at Centre Back - Shittu, Beevers, Osborne, Lowry, & Robbo to come back from injury. Compare that to our full-backs and, well, Malone, Dunne and J Smith just don't seem to cut it.
    In fact when Spurs ask for A Smith back can't we send them Jack Smith with a wig on? If they complain tell they asked for a Smith back and that's what they got.
