MILLWALL look set to name an unchanged side for the visit of Middlesbrough to The Den tomorrow.

Boss Kenny Jackett will select from the same squad as he did against Sheffield Wednesday last week, barring any last-minute transfer activity ahead of the 11pm deadline tonight.

Captain Paul Robinson will miss out again but should have recovered from his double hernia operation in time for the trip to Hull City after the international break.

Full-back Jack Smith is still sidelined with a thigh injury, while tomorrow’s fixture will also come too soon for Tam Mkandawire, who is slowly working his way back to full fitness.

Centre-half Danny Shittu could be in contention for a return to the side as the Lions look to shore up their leaky defence, with Millwall yet to keep a clean-sheet this season.

Midfielder Therry Racon could also be set for an appearance tomorrow following his second-half cameo against Wednesday.

Middlesbrough travel to South London without captain Rhys Williams, who suffered an ankle injury in their 2-0 victory over Gillingham on Tuesday.

Former England International Jonathon Woodgate is expected to deputise in William’s absence, having sat out Boro’s last two fixtures.

Midfielder Kevin Thomson is also set to miss out with a calf injury, however winger Mustapha Carayol is expected to be fit despite sustaining a knock in midweek.

Strikers Lukas Jutkiewicz and Curtis Main are not part of Boro’s match-day squad.
