Aston Villa v Millwall: Ben Marshall starts at Villa Park with Ben Thompson sidelined

Neil Harris has made one change to his Millwall team for their game against Aston Villa this afternoon.

The Lions can move six points clear of the relegation-zone with a victory, but they’ll have to do it without Ben Thompson, who hasn’t been able to shake off the hamstring injury that saw him withdrawn against Brentford on Good Friday.
