JERMAINE Easter is one of three players who could return to the Millwall squad for Saturday's trip to Nottingham Forest.

Easter (thigh), Lee Martin (knee) and Nicky Bailey (back) have trained this week after injuries.

Boss Ian Holloway has said that he will take a cautious approach with Bailey, who played 70 minutes for the Lions' U21s in midweek.

Scott Malone could make his first start since recovering from a hip injury having come on as a second-half substitute against Blackburn Rovers last time out.

Danny Shittu and Richard Chaplow (both Achilles) remain sidelined.

For Forest, quartet Andy Reid, Henri Lansbury, David Vaughan and Kelvin Wilson are back in training and could feature.

    A pity Holloway couldn't have been more cautious with his tactics and aquisitions. Don't worry though, the club are reviewing whats gone wrong and he'll still be here next season to put everything right.

    A pound coin was thrown on the pitch at elland rd, police are now trying to determine if it was a missile or a takeover bid.

    You cannot deny that any luck we have had this season has been “BAD LUCK” poor Reffing decisions, player injuries, tactical ineptness, a board that has no f’ing clue about football and players reaching the end of their contracts/careers stealing wages off of us. All that said we still do have a “chance” it’s ultra-slim and highly unlikely and even if pigs fly and we do stay up we are a club in no position at the moment to go forward. Much as it pains me to say this is really looking like the beginning of the end. If we go down we will stay down for at least four seasons and I really don’t think the infrastructure we have at our club is sustainable in League 1 (Division 3). We either have to make some really big decisions and totally change the way we operate or I can see us just fading and dying. That would totally kill me, as a supporter all my life (first game in 1968) and a season ticket holder for the past 30 years I don’t know what I would do without MY Millwall. Unfortunately this club has been mismanaged for as long as I can remember. We never capitalise on the good things that come along and always find a way of screwing up anything good that comes to the club. Right now we all need to unite and get behind the team. It does not matter what you think of Holloway or the current team this is OUR club. As the song say “rain or shine all the time...”. It’s absolutely p!ssing down now but this is the time we all need to be MILLWALL and let those lazy, unfit, no-good ****’s know what we expect from them. To all our players I say COME ON YOU LIONS show us what you are made of and if you can’t do it for us do it for yourselves and your own self respect! It’s a bloody long time since I felt proud of Millwall and went home thinking the players had done all they could. We don’t ask much as supporters, just your all! Fight until the last chance is gone!!!

      @PaulMcK: Did you ever write Winston Churchill speeches?

      I have also been a season ticket holder on and off over the years – just renewed mine. I thought we were really going to push for the play-offs this season but alas it’s all gone wrong. When News at Den put on here where we thought we would end up at the end of the season after Lomas was appointed, I naively said we would end up eighth from top now I wished we’d end up eighth from bottom.

      I honestly believe that the board have got an idea as to what they’re doing but got it wrong with Lomas. Loads of clubs go through this crap but we don’t care about them. I hate this happening to our Millwall even more so when it looks like the Anoraks and Palarse are staying put but we will always be there whatever the division.

      Long live JB, the supporters and Millwall

        @REAL Supporter: I wouldn't be too sure about the boards competence. Even before this season there'd been a lot of discontent about Ambler and the poor quality of loans/freebies coming into the club. The club got it wrong with Lomas, but then badly compounded it by bringing in a manager who'd just left Palace with what seemed like a nervous breakdown. After gaining just 10 points from 45, they're now backing the same manager to resurect the club next season. Meanwhile, off the pitch the fuss over the regeneration situation becomes dodgier and dodgier the more you learn.

      @MillwallLad123: like the look of that team but I can't see him starting Bailey and I reckon McDonald will start rather than Jackson.

        @Crazy4lions: I like that formation, finally some true width and we can see Moro next to a target man. If that combination doesn't work, I would bench Moro till the end of the season and put him out of his misery.

    Sorry to be gloomy but I cannot see us coming away with anything from this game, NF have a lot of their injured players back they will want to impress psycho and barring miracles who is going to score for us?
    I will not bother to listen or look at the text for this game as it makes me miserable. Anyone got a tip for the national?
