TRIED and tested Millwall players could be recalled to the Lions' starting XI at Brighton on Friday, manager Ian Holloway has said.
The likes of Danny Shittu and Jimmy Abdou will be in contention for a place in Holloway's line up following a dismal defeat to Middlesbrough at the weekend.
The Lions boss says he will select players who have demonstrated in the past that they can handle the pressure of playing for the club.
"I've got so many players sitting around not playing and maybe I'll have to go back and get that right," Holloway said.
"Maybe they've already proved they can play for Millwall and they know what they're doing for Millwall. I'll have a look at that.
"All I know is that this will give someone else an opportunity. I've got to come up with the right formula to go away to Brighton.
"In my experience you have to go through some horrible things to make people realise what they have to do – if they're strong enough.
"This club is strong and we've got to sieve though the squad and find people who can play for it. Kenny Jackett did a wonderful job of that.
"I put Shittu on at half time and that wasn't a problem. Should I start him against Brighton? Probably might have to."
