MILLWALL welcome back winger James Henry to their squad for Saturday's eagerly-awaited South London derby against Charlton.

Henry was suspended for Tuesday night’s impressive 1-0 victory over Wolves after collecting his fifth yellow card of the season but is back in the fold for the visit of the Addicks to The Den.

However, striker Darius Henderson (hamstring) and midfielder Liam Trotter (adductor) will miss out again, but Kenny Jackett is optimistic they will be available to travel to Ipswich Town on December 8.

Midfielder Therry Racon will be hoping to make his second appearance of the season against his former club, having been a regular on the Lions' bench this term.

Forward Danny N’Guessan, who was heavily linked with a move to Charlton last summer, will be keen to impress following his cameo appearances in recent weeks.

Captain Paul Robinson (pelvis) and John Marquis (thigh) remain the only other absentees.

Charlton will be without the services of suspended centre-half Michael Morrison and are sweating on the fitness of frontman Ricardo Fuller.

Defender Morrison collected his fifth yellow card of the season in a midweek win over Peterborough and subsequently serves a one-match ban.

Striker Ricardo Fuller, who netted the opening goal against Posh, was forced off with a suspected hamstring injury and will be assessed prior to kick-off.

Former Lions loanee Danny Haynes is also doubtful but the versatile Laurie Wilson could be set for a return after a month out with a thigh injury.
