Millwall boss Neil Harris looks likely to have just one decision to make for his team selection at Aston Villa – with Mahlon Romeo hoping his performance against Sheffield United keeps his place in the starting line-up.

Conor McLaughlin has served his one-match suspension for five bookings and the Northern Ireland international, first-choice at right-back, is back in contention.

But Romeo scored the second goal in last weekend’s 3-1 win against the Blades.

“The dilemma with Mahlon and Conor at right-back, I made my mind up at the beginning of the week,” said Harris. “I’ll let the boys know accordingly on Friday.

“Tougher decisions to make? Yeah, definitely. But for good reasons – fine performances and player availability.

“What I do know is that whatever 11 go out there will be hungry and ready for a test against Aston Villa.”
