STRIKER Darius Henderson is expected to make his long-awaited return from injury as Millwall face Blackpool on Saturday.

Henderson has been struggling to fully recover from a calf injury but has been declared fit for tomorrow’s fixture, having trained this week.

The Lions could, however, be without midfield duo Josh Wright and Liam Trotter, who are struggling with niggles, and will be assessed before tomorrow’s fixture.

Otherwise manager Kenny Jackett is expected to name a relatively unchanged squad from last Saturday’s 3-0 victory at IpswichTown as Millwall go in search of a sixth consecutive win.

Harry Kane and Maik Taylor are both set to make the final appearances of their loan spells from Tottenham and Leeds United respectively.

Attacker Josh McQuoid could be set for his first Lions run-out since January, having returned from his successful three-month stint at Burnley.

Youngster Jake Goodman, who NewsAtDen revealed has signed a one-year professional contract with the club, could also be included in the squad.

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway could making sweeping changes to his side as he prepares for the start of the Tangerines' play-off campaign next week.

This means the likes of Kevin Phillips, Nouha Dicko, Lomana Lua-Lua, Brett Ormerod and Ludovic Sylvestre are likely to be involved at The Den.

Blackpool are, however, boosted by the return of midfielder Keith Southern, who has completed a three-match suspension.
