Championship preview: Millwall vs. Derby County

TIM Cahill wasn’t signed in time to make his second Millwall debut against Derby on Tuesday night – but Monday’s other new recruit Harry Toffolo could feature.

Cahill’s move to the club was confirmed on Monday evening. Toffolo was at Millwall’s training ground on Monday morning before joining in his first training session with his new club.

Jason Shackell doesn’t have permission to play against his parent club. Byron Webster and Aiden O’Brien are out.

Millwall manager Neil Harris made nine changes for the 2-2 draw against Rochdale in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.

The majority of those players will come back into the starting XI as Millwall aim for revenge following the Rams’ 3-0 win at Pride Park in December.

Joe Ledley is back for Derby after missing five games with a back problem. Bradley Johnson is still out.

The Lions are protecting an eight-game unbeaten run at home stretching back to early November.
