MILLWALL travel to Ipswich Town for their penultimate game of the season expected to be boosted by the return of captain Paul Robinson.

Robinson missed Tuesday's 1-0 victory at Coventry City with a knock sustained in the previous game against Leicester City, but is expected to partner Shane Lowry in defence for the visit to Portman Road.

Frontman Darius Henderson is making slow progress on his return from a calf injury, but could make the substitutes' bench.

With manager Kenny Jackett hinting that he could make changes to his side, the likes of Liam Trotter, Shaun Batt, Liam Feeney and Alan Dunne will all be pushing for recalls to the starting line-up.

Ipswich Town host the Lions set to be boosted by the return of midfielder Jimmy Bullard, who is expected to overcome an illness.

Goalkeeper Richard Wright is unavailable with knee cartilage damage, so Arran Lee-Barrett will continue to deputise having come in for Tuesday's 1-1 draw against Birmingham City.

Manager Paul Jewell has hinted that he may use the fixture against Millwall to give some of the younger players in his squad an opportunity to impress.

Liam Hyam, Josh Carson, Joe Whight, Cody Cropper and Byron Lawrence could all be involved in some capacity.

Forward Jay Emmanuel-Thomas could return to the side having scored in the draw at St. Andrew's after coming on as substitute.
