ED Upson could face Yeovil Town tomorrow night despite Millwall agreeing not to play the midfielder against his former club when they signed him in January.
Ian Holloway has confirmed Upson could now start against the Glovers, after their manager Gary Johnson claimed the 24-year-old was not up to "Championship standard."
Holloway was angered by Johnson's comments and is considering whether to give Upson the chance to prove his ex-boss wrong in Tuesday's basement battle.
He told NewsAtDen: "After what his manager said, I am thinking about whether I should be a gentleman or not.
"I might play him because if Gary says he is not good enough to play in the Championship, I might prove that he is by playing Ed against him.
"Gary upset me the other week because he shouldn't say that about his old player.
"They wouldn't have sold him to us, with us competing against them to stay up, had he been allowed to play. Normally I'm a gentleman and would keep my word.
"I wanted Ed long term – that was the thinking. If I was going to lose Liam Trotter, and I could bring in a replacement for the future, then no problem, I haven't got an issue.
"But their manager shouldn't be saying things like that, I don't think."
