CENTRE back Shane Lowry returns after a four-match suspension for Millwall's match with Barnsley at Oakwell on Saturday.

Lowry is expected to be reinstated to the heart of the Lions' back four after serving a lengthy ban triggered by his red card against Sheffield Wednesday last month.

Mark Beevers is available again after a calf injury, while new signing Fede Bessone has also been included in Ian Holloway's 22-man squad for the trip to Yorkshire.



Richard Chaplow and Nicky Bailey remain sidelined.

Midfielder Jacob Mellis returns for Barnsley following suspension.

Tykes boss Danny Wilson waiting to see whether Chris O'Grady, Paddy McCourt, Jack Hunt and Ryan McLaughlin overcome minor niggles in time to feature.

    Great, this looks like a strong Millwall team that we will be up at Barnsley Supporting. So, hopefully plenty of fans will join us at Oakwell. A Win For The Lions.

      @BUSHWACKER14: Heard the standard 400ish tickets sold for this type of away game. I don't think you will see any improvement on that.

        @Windy: 400 is the Hard - Core that go to most matches away, but the Attraction of a Stronger Team, could put another 300 on the travels to Beat the Tykes. We always make plenty of NOISE even with less then 400 fans there.

    Not confident at all for tomorrow. IH says they have a 'large pitch' and all our players are supposedly unfit so that be a disadvantage. Barnsley's home form hasn't been too bad recently and we all know how we struggle away. They're scoring freely at home as well (6 in last 3) and we can't defend for s*** (150 in last 12). Always the pessimist, I see a 2-1 loss. Don't berate me for these comments, just my opinion!

      @harryfabian: Reckon we'll win tomorrow.
      Lowry will be well up for it and so will Shittu. If they can re-kindle there performances against Ipswich and Sheff Wed, I don't see to much getting past them tomorrow.
      Obviously it's a must win for both sides, however it's more of a must win for Barnsley, plus they'll be at home which put's the added pressure on them.
      Let take our chances tomorrow 'wall, if we do, reckon we'll win by 2 - 0.
      Miiiillllll.......

    Bit of a shocker that both Chaplow and Bailey are out injuried, but at least the other 22 lads that Ollie is taking will have a good day out in south yorkshire, why 22 he cant even get them all on the bench, the Club must be better off than they are letting on.

        @Peckhamlad: I dreamt that score last night but then again I also dreamt I won the lottery. At least by buying a ticket that one's in my own hands.

            @wellerandpossee:
            So many horrid ghosts. O now, who will behold Barnsley?
            The royal manager of this ruin'd band
            Walking from watch to watch, from player to player,
            Let him cry 'Praise and glory on his head!'
            For forth he goes and visits all his host.
            Bids them good morrow with a modest smile
            And calls them Wall, friends and countrymen.
            Upon his bald head there is no note
            How dread an army hath enrounded him;
            Nor doth he dedicate one jot of colour
            Unto the weary and all-watched day
            But freshly looks and over-bears attaint
            With cheerful semblance and sweet majesty;
            That every wretch, pining and pale before,
            Beholding him, plucks comfort from his looks:
            A largess universal like the sun
            His liberal eye doth give to every one,
            Thawing cold fear, that mean and gentle all,
            Behold, as may unworthiness define,
            A little touch of Ollie at Barnsley.

            With sincerest apologies to Shakespeare!

    It's Holloway time now. He has had 5 weeks to look at our team. With Lowry back we will only conceed 1 goal at most. So up to the front men to man up and score 2. Going to bed now in hope that 3 points are ours. COYL

    IH shoulders the blame again - and again - and again..................................
    I see on an earlier post that he now thinks Morrison is good on the RH side - well there is a surprise - as if we didnt know that!!
    BUT we PAY him as a centre forward - at which he is absolutel;y CRAP - ask Norwich and Leeds.
    We need a forward - a proper one - a real one - one that scares people - Morrison is a joke - how people who contribut to this web site think differently is beyond me.
    IH and his signings have put us in no stronger position than we were when he first joined.
