Preview: Leeds United vs. Millwall

MILLWALL are boosted by the return of left-back Shane Lowry and winger Chris Taylor ahead of Saturday's lunchtime clash with Leeds United.

Left-back Lowry returns to the first-team picture having completed his one-match ban following his red card against Peterborough a week ago.

Manager Kenny Jackett must decide whether to recall Lowry to the fold immediately or to stick with the same defensive back-line that helped the Lions to victory over Middlesbrough last weekend.



Winger Taylor is another welcome addition to the squad after a knee injury and he completed 70 minutes for the U21s against QPR last Friday to build up his fitness.

Midfielder George Saville could make his debut after sealing a loan move from Chelsea earlier this week and is expected to be named amongst the substitutes.

Midfielder Josh Wright should retain his place in the starting eleven after a composed performance at the Riverside Stadium, while Andy Keogh and Adam Smith will both be pushing for recalls.



The Lions are without striker Rob Hulse, who continues to struggle with a stomach injury, and his absence should mean that Benik Afobe and John Marquis continue their partnership up front.

Leeds look set to name an unchanged starting XI for the third consecutive game as they prepare to welcome the Lions to Yorkshire.

Manager Neil Warnock is boosted by the return of midfielder Rudolph Austin (knock), who should return to the match-day squad having missed the Whites' last two fixtures.

Otherwise Leeds have no fresh injury problems, with defenders Leigh Bromby and Adam Drury the only notable absentees.

Former Lions forward Steve Morison is expected to make his first appearance against Millwall since leaving the club for Norwich City in 2011.

    I'm going with Lowry back in for osbourne with beevers back at cb the only changes, I want smith back in but think its the wrong game to do it, if it was a home game then it's a no brainer. Taylor and trotts to come off the bench,
    Afobe to score in a 1-0 win, or Moro to score with beevers to equalise in a 1-1 draw.
    I'd be happy with either.
