Preview: Millwall vs. Burnley

MILLWALL could be forced to make up to three changes to their starting line up for the visit of Burnley to The Den on Saturday.

Alan Dunne and Jack Smith are vying for the right-back berth, which has been vacated by Paul Connolly, who is facing at least two weeks out with a groin injury.

Jimmy Abdou serves a one-match ban after his dismissal against Reading, with Shaun Derry the likely replacement. Richard Chaplow has resumed training after injury and could also come into Steve Lomas' thinking.



The Lions will give a late fitness test to Martyn Waghorn, who twisted his ankle in training at the start of the week. If the striker fails to make it, Liam Feeney could start in his place.

Lee Martin is almost certainly ruled out with an ongoing hip problem, while Mark Beevers is nearing a return to action but this weekend's match comes too soon for him.

For Burnley, David Jones is available again after suspension but midfielders Scott Arfield and Dean Marney missed the midweek defeat to West Ham through injury and are doubts, while Keith Treacy is banned.

      @NICKOLA: prefer Easter to Morison otherwise team looks as strong as it can be under the circumstances

    I think Millwall will win tomorrow 1-0 or 2-1. What does everyone else think?

      Draw. Which on paper would be a very good result especially given the record that Dyche has against us. Possibly a win. I can't see us losing.

    Big test tomorrow but if the spammers can beat them then no reason we can't, however a a clean sheet is unlikely so a draw is probably more realistic... Wish I was a relaxed as some of the players; seen Morrison, Feeney and Lowery enjoying a Starbucks with their feet up in Bromely today!!

    We should keep to 4-2-3-1, that formation works wonders and keeps the midfield packed which is where most games are won and lost.
