League One preview: Millwall vs. MK Dons

MILLWALL will again be without Jordan Archer’s for Saturday’s League One fixture against MK Dons at The Den.

Lions boss Neil Harris could have Steve Morison and Jed Wallace available. Morison has missed the last three games with a groin injury and without him Millwall have failed to score from play.

Wallace has missed four games with a calf strain.

“We’ll give them every opportunity to be fit,” Harris said. “If it means Saturday morning it’s a fitness test then so be it.

MK Dons are likely to be without Chuks Aneke after he got injured in the 2-2 draw at Bradford on Tuesday night.

Dons manager Robbie Neilson could include former Lions midfielder Ed Upson in his midfield.

Neilson has won just one of his nine games away from home since being appointed boss in early December. MK Dons have also failed to score in six of those games but under Neilson they have put five more points between themselves and the relegation zone and are now seven points ahead of 21st-placed Swindon.

Millwall are on a 16-game unbeaten run and are just six points off the automatic promotion places. They haven’t conceded in nine games – their best sequence since 1925-26 when they kept 11 successive clean sheets.
