Preview: Millwall vs. Sheffield Wednesday

JAMES Henry is set to make his return from a knee injury when Millwall face Sheffield Wednesday at The Den on Tuesday night.

Henry, who had been expected to miss the rest of the season with ligament damage, resumed full training last week and will be included in the squad to face the Owls.

But Southampton loanee Richard Chaplow will play no part after hobbling off against Birmingham City on Saturday with suspected ankle ligament damage.



Chaplow's absence could see Crystal Palace loanee Jermaine Easter return to the side with manager Jackett expected to name two strikers in his starting XI.

The Lions are bolstered by the return of defender Karleigh Osborne from a hamstring injury, while Chelsea midfielder George Saville has been tipped to feature.

Forward Shaun Batt may also return to the reckoning having been recalled from his loan spell with Leyton Orient, for whom he scored three goals in 13 appearances.



Sheffield Wednesday are sweating on the fitness of a trio of first-team players ahead of their visit to The Den – their first since 2006.

Jermaine Johnson (hamstring), Seyi Olofinjana and Stuart Holden (both knee) have been carrying knocks and manager Dave Jones may be forced to shuffle his pack.

Loanees Steve Howard and Danny Pugh are both pushing for recalls to the side, while forward Gary Madine (hamstring) is unlikely to be available.

    According to the FA web site. Forde and Shittu are on 4 Yellow cards and Henry is on 9, so maybe Shittu will be rested and Henry if you play, behave. Marquis and Tyson played last night for the U 21's. So, If KJ is playing two up front, Hulse and Easter to start maybe Keogh at some stage. Back 4 Lowry, St ledger, Beevers, Dunne. To start maybe Feeney, Trotter Abdou and J Smith (Or A Smith) with Taylor and Henry at some stage. I agree with levy, I think Chaplow would have been a star at Wembley.

    589 extra tickets in the £60 lower tier from the FA after they said there would be no more, that's a p*** take as I have friends who got s*** seats just yesterday.

    Half time and what s*** ref Easter has been pulled all over the place and got f*** all off him. Hulse is one lazy good for nothing waste of space who offers f*** all. Savile is not a wide player and would not be surprised if he don't start second half with Henry coming on if then give ten mins. Jimmy quality again and really good play for his goal won header on half way and had the decency to continue his run. Come on wall need to play much better this half as we won't be getting sod all from this ref

      Listened in on BBC Radio London and the commentary team saying we didn't deserve to lose and that the officials were shocking. Heard that before......
