SCOTT Malone is back in training after a knee injury and comes into contention for Millwall's crunch-clash against Barnsley on Saturday.
The left back has returned from bone bruising ahead of schedule and the Lions will make a late decision on whether he is fit to play.
But Steve Lomas' preparations have been disrupted by a groin injury to midfielder Liam Trotter, who looks set to miss out.
And striker Scott McDonald remains a doubt with a hamstring strain.
Jermaine Easter will be hoping to continue up front after marking both of his last two appearances with a goal, but Steve Morison has been tipped to start.
Loan signing Guy Moussi and fit-again Richard Chaplow are the obvious candidates to replace Trotter, although Lomas could switch to a 4-4-2 formation and play an extra striker.
Mark Beevers is over a knee injury and expected to play for the first time since the 1-0 win over Charlton in September.
Barnsley midfielder Jacob Mellis is fit again after an ankle problem, but Peter Ramage is likely to miss out with a thigh strain.
First-choice goalkeeper Luke Steele (back) remains sidelined, so Stoke loanee Jack Butland will retain his place between the sticks.
