KENNY Jackett is confident striker Rob Hulse will be passed fit to face Leeds United on Saturday after missing the win over Middlesbrough with a stomach injury.
Hulse was left out of the Lions squad that travelled to Teesside last weekend after suffering a minor muscle tear in training, although it is understood the QPR loanee was keen to play regardless.
Jackett, however, was not prepared to take the risk and decided Hulse should be left back in London with a view to him being fully fit to play at Elland Road.
Speaking after Millwall's 2-1 win at the Riverside Stadium, Jackett confirmed the 32-year-old's injury was nothing serious, adding: "We expect him to be fit by Saturday, that's how it looks."
Hulse has made four appearances for the Lions since signing on loan in January and scored his first goal for the club in the FA Cup fifth round win over Luton Town earlier this month.
