Preview: Wigan Athletic vs. Millwall

©
©

MILLWALL could be unchanged for the first time since Ian Holloway's arrival.

The Lions came through Saturday's win over Nottingham Forest unscathed and only Owen Garvan is a minor doubt for the trip to Wigan with some ongoing discomfort in his knee.

The likes of Stefan Maierhofer, Lee Martin and Nicky Bailey, who all started at the weekend after spells on the bench or in the treatment room, will be assessed but should play.

Jermaine Easter has travelled with the squad and could be added to the matchday 18 after a thigh strain, but Danny Shittu and Richard Chaplow (both Achilles) are out.

Wigan manager Uwe Rosler is expected to tinker with his line up with his side's forthcoming FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal in mind.

Goalkeeper Scott Carson is set to make a rare start, while Shaun Maloney could come into the side after sitting out Saturday's 1-0 win over Leeds.

Former Lions loanee Martyn Waghorn will continue in attack for the Latics.

    Garvan must be the most uninfluential player in our squad - and we've got Josh Wright!

      @Alan.F: Fully agree, cant run, hardly ever passes to his own players and at 50-50 tackles bottles it, really dont understand his selection. But if they get 3 points then Holloway is right I suppose, but I do agree Alan.

      @steveomfc5: It's a shame we follow up the win at Forest with a tough trip to Wigan. But we've shown we haven't got the character to beat the bottom clubs, so maybe we''re better off playing the better ones. A lot depends on the Charlton result, but a win would be brilliant and even a draw would leave a glimmer of hope.

    I really do not think the Arsenal game will have any affect on the game or their players.
    Wigan`s priority is to STAY in the play-offs and get back into the Premier League.

    Odds on Waghorn scoring????? Couldn't hit a cows a*** with a banjo when he played for us, no doubt he will bang one in, although I did say that about fat boy Reid on Saturday. Very nervous about todays game but hopefully 3pts. COYL

    Not too worried about waghorn scoring. I think he's as overrated as Jackson.

      @benzo: Waghorn has scored about 4 and assisted on at least the same if not more since arriving at Wigan, so definitely not in the same league as Jackson.

    Massive game today boys! Let's get 3 points!
    A dire 0-0 for the boring neighbours and Yeovil would be nice too.

    Well the 1300 will sound like 30,000 and don't forget it is one of the smallest grounds in the championship
