DARIUS Henderson and Liam Trotter could return to the Millwall squad for tomorrow's visit of Leicester City, but boss Kenny Jackett is expected to name an unchanged line-up.

The returning duo may have to be content with a place on the substitute’s bench following the Lions recent run of good form which has seen them pick up two wins and a draw from their previous three fixtures.

The versatile Scott Barron is expected to retain his place on the left side of midfield for the visit of the Foxes after playing all 90 minutes as Millwall beat Portsmouth 1-0 in midweek.

However, both Hamer Bouazza and Liam Feeney will be looking to stake their claims in the side as the Lions go in search of three points that, depending on other results, could finally secure their Championship status for next season.

Jackett remains without long-term absentees Therry Racon (ankle), Tam Mkandawire (knee) and Steve Mildenhall (ankle).

Leicester City will be unable to call upon midfielder Neil Danns, who is due to undergo groin surgery, as they look to make a late charge into the play-offs.

Foxes manager Nigel Pearson is also sweating on the fitness of defender Lee Peltier and striker Paul Gallagher who are both struggling with knocks sustained over the Easter weekend.

Peltier (hamstring) and Gallagher (knee) will be monitored before tomorrow’s fixture. Darius Vassell (knee) and Martyn Waghorn (hamstring) remain unavailable.
