Millwall have made one change for today’s FA Cup fifth round tie against Leicester City – with Shane Ferguson replacing Jed Wallace.

The on-loan Wolves winger does not even make the bench. But there is a boost for the Lions with Lee Gregory and Shaun Hutchinson both returning from injury as they are listed amongst the substitutes.

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri had stated he would make changes and big-hitters Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and Marc Albrighton are all on the bench.

Millwall have already knocked out two Premier League sides at The Den – a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth on January 7 followed by a 1-0 win over Watford on January 29.

The Lions have kept five clean sheets and are unbeaten in 12 matches in all competitions.

Leicester’s only win in the last seven games was an extra-time 3-1 result over Derby County.
