Preview: Millwall vs. Wigan Athletic

MILLWALL are sweating on the fitness of midfielder Liam Trotter ahead of Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Wigan at Wembley.

Trotter missed the 2-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in midweek after picking up a knee injury and is touch-and-go to be involved, although he was expected to train on Friday.

James Henry could be promoted to the starting XI having returned from a knee ligament injury with a 35-minute run-out against the Owls.



The Lions will be without cup-tied duo Jermaine Easter and Martyn Woolford, but Leicester loanee Sean St Ledger is eligible to play. Andy Keogh is set be recalled to the side in the absence of Easter.

Shaun Batt will be hoping to be involved at some stage after being recalled from Leyton Orient, but Josh Wright and John Marquis have been left out of the squad.

Nathan Tyson is available again after a hamstring strain but Southampton loanee Richard Chaplow has returned to his parent club with an ankle injury.



Wigan have a fully-fit squad to choose from. However, boss Roberto Martinez may opt for changes after the Latics laboured to a 1-1 draw against ten-man QPR last Sunday.

The likes of Franco Di Santo, Angelo Henriquez and Roger Espinoza are all pushing for starts.

      If he wants to leave us for bigger and better things then he couldn't choose a better game to show his worth, but alas I don't think he is that intelligent, hope he proves us wrong but don't hold your breath.
      COYL.
