STRIKER Josh McQuoid looks set to be involved in Millwall's final game of the season after returning from his loan spell at Burnley.

McQuoid's 93-day stint at Turf Moor came to end after the Clarets' 4-0 defeat at Blackpool, who travel to The Den on Saturday as the 2011-12 season draws to a close for the Lions.

And the 22-year-old, who is expected to go straight into the squad to face Ian Holloway's side, has been praised by Burnley boss Eddie Howe following a successful three-month period in Lancashire.

Howe told the Burnley Express: "He's been a joy to work with, he's been very good for the squad, and we wish him well going back to Millwall.

"I think, personally, he's taken a great deal out of it. It's probably his longest run in the Championship in terms of games and experience, and I think it will have done his confidence the world of good.

"I've got nothing but good things to say about Josh, so wherever his career takes him we'll certainly keep an eye on him and wish him well."
