KENNY Jackett has hinted he is ready to give Millwall's fringe players a chance to impress against Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Alan Dunne, Liam Trotter, Shaun Batt and Liam Feeney started on the bench during the Lions' 1-0 win at Coventry in midweek and would be the likely candidates to come into the side at Portman Road should Jackett make changes.

Captain Paul Robinson and top-scorer Darius Henderson could also be involved again, having overcome their respective injuries.

"I'll assess training on Friday and see what the energy levels are like," Jackett told the club's official site.

"What the players are telling me, through their opinions and also their body language, is they want to keep playing and keep going. But I have to temper that with fresh energy and perhaps finding out one or two things for next year as well.

"We've had a good run of late. I felt the Coventry performance was probably our flattest of recent weeks, but we found a way and found a formula to get a great win. We want to continue that up at Ipswich.

"It will be their final home game of the season and every club wants to sign-off well, so we will have to match that.

"Our aim now is to finish as high up the league as we possibly can and take some kind of form and momentum into the start of next season."
