Preview: Millwall vs. Brighton

OWEN Garvan is set to make his Millwall debut against Brighton tomorrow with his loan move from Crystal Palace due to be confirmed this afternoon.

The midfielder trained with the Lions squad on Friday morning and the paperwork for the deal should be completed in advance of the Seagulls' visit to The Den.

Boss Ian Holloway has hinted he could make changes to the side beaten 1-0 at Barnsley, with Jermaine Easter and Simeon Jackson among those pushing for starting berths.

David Forde is available despite dislocating a finger last weekend, but Richard Chaplow and Nicky Bailey remain sidelined by injury.

Brighton will add Jesse Lingard to their squad after signing the young attacker on loan from Manchester United.

Andrea Orlandi (ankle), Rohan Ince (ankle) and Will Buckley (hamstring) are doubtful.

    Well Done Ollie, let's have a strong team that can win matches. Starting with Brighton. Captain Shittu can lead the way!

    Rather than worrying about getting wingers in I would play 3-5-2. Our defence is struggling especially with Malone and Fredericks pushing up, so why not play them as wing backs... they can push up and throw balls in the box all day long, with beevers, shittu and lowry at the back defending to cover them. Then in midfield, garvan and williams sitting back allowing upson to get forward and be the attacking midfielder he is supposed to be. And finally what we all want... TWO strikers... thats right two, playing off each other. Easy this management lark.

    You see,this is what some ( quite a lot now ) find strange,apart from the talk,talk, he is saying now that there may be several changes ?? How can you get a settled squad that knows each others style,what crosses to put over for certain type of player ,what type of ball a player is looking for etc etc.Then how can this gel a team with these changes ? All players have strengths and weakness and they have to learn these. I find his way of thinking strange and for some to say it takes time and we are playing better etc ,yea nice but if we play as hoofers whatever doesn't matter a monkeys just get some d*** on the pitch to bloody score a goal or two ffs......never known a Millwall forward line as bad that can't score a f....ng goal. Can have best defence in the league no good if we need a white stick to find the net up front is it.....sorry gone on just don't need another saturday downer,wifes getting fed up with it

    2 , is he better than our current squad given the type of player he is ?

    This is the team I'd have:
    Forde
    Dunne, Shittu, Lowry, Malone
    Williams, Garvan
    McDonald, Upson, Woolford
    Morison
    Subs: Bywater, Fredericks, Beevers, Feeney, Martin, Jackson, Campbell.
    Doesn't really matter however. Steve Kember told me earlier this week that all Brighton do is pass it and you need to be aggressive, sharp and on your game for 90 minutes as they'll pick you off with a 5-pass-move ending in a goal. I can't see us getting anything but at least Charlton, Barnsley, Yeovil and Doncaster are all away.

      @harryfabian: And while we got Garvan they got Lingard who has scored more in one game than McD, Campbell and Jackson have managed between them.

        @Sealion: That Lingard got those 4 goals and then faded away. Knowing our luck he'll do the same tomorrow! Hopefully Williams can keep him quiet. What I'm worried about is Ulloa - he's in great form and we're susceptible at set pieces.
