MILLWALL will be able to call upon Andy Keogh and David Forde for their league opener against Blackpool tomorrow after the duo returned from international duty.

Striker Keogh, who played 20 minutes for the Republic of Ireland in a goalless draw with Serbia on Wednesday night, is expected to go straight into the Lions' line-up for the visit of Ian Holloway's side.

Forde was an unused substitute by Giovanni Trapattoni in Belgrade and will reclaim his spot on Kenny Jackett's bench as back-up goalkeeper to Maik Taylor.

Millwall captain Paul Robinson is expected to begin full training on Monday after a double hernia operation but he will sit-out Saturday's game, as will Tamika Mkandawire who is still struggling with a knee problem.

Jackett could hand a start to Danny Shittu after the powerful defender made a 60-minute appearance as a substitute in midweek.

Blackpool are boosted by the return of veteran striker Kevin Phillips, who has recovered from a hamstring strain.

New signings Adda Djeziri and Alberto Noguera could both be involved, while the Tangerines have signed Wigan's Nouha Dicko in time to feature.

    Henderson and Taylor struggled against Crawley in midweek. So bringing Andy K back into the side is much needed. Still think we are two or three quality players light but in Kenny we trust. COYL
