DEFENDERS Paul Robinson and Shane Lowry could feature in Millwall's pre-season friendly against Southend United on Tuesday night, manager Kenny Jackett has revealed.

Jackett was speaking after his side's 3-2 win over Exeter City on Saturday and added that he was pleased with the workout his players had been given by the League Two outfit.

The Lions boss also confirmed that Maik Taylor, absent from the squad that travelled to Devon, had been rested.

Robinson has yet to feature in a friendly this summer after undergoing a double hernia operation, while fellow centre-back Lowry picked up a groin strain during the tour of Ireland last month.

"Exeter play a style of football we will encounter regularly in the Championship this season," Jackett told the club's official site.

"Tactically they posed us the sort of problems we will have to deal with in the coming months, so it was very useful from that point of view.

"After the defeat at Crawley, a win was important for us at this stage, but there is still plenty to work on.

"Maik Taylor wasn't involved today because David Forde needed a game but he's fine and hopefully Robinson and Lowry could be involved at Southend on Tuesday night.

"Everyone else who needed it got game time at Exeter which was also important."
