Millwall manager Neil Harris has made three changes for today’s match at Leeds United.

Ben Marshall and Ben Thompson – both FA Cup-tied for the penalty shootout defeat to Brighton before the international break – both return to the starting line-up.

It was Thompson’s first senior brace which saw Millwall halt a run of four straight Championship defeats when they won 2-0 at Birmingham City.

Shaun Williams and Aiden O’Brien both drop to the bench.

Shane Ferguson starts a three-match ban and his place at left-back is filled by James Meredith.

The Lions won 4-3 in the corresponding fixture last season – Tom Elliott levelling just before the end of full-time and then Jed Wallace producing a winner in stoppage time.

But Millwall have lost five of their last six visits to Elland Road.

The Lions have at least a game in hand on all the other sides in the bottom 10. They are a point above 22nd-placed Rotherham United, who are at Derby County today.

Leeds have won 12 league matches at home, only leaders Norwich City and Sheffield United have won more (both 13).

Millwall: Martin, Romeo, Cooper, Pearce, Meredith, Leonard, Thompson, Tunnicliffe, J Wallace, Marshall, Gregory. Subs: Archer, McLaughlin, Hutchinson, Williams, Elliott, Morison, O’Brien.

Leeds: Peacock-Farrell, Ayling, Cooper, Bamford, Alioski, Roberts, Jansson, Hernandez, Harrison, Philips, Klich. Subs: Miazek, Douglas, Forshaw, Dallas, Berardi, Shackleton, Clarke.
