Millwall manager Neil Harris has made one change for today’s home game against Brentford – James Meredith coming in at left-back.

The Lions chief has switched back to a four-man defence for the derby against the Bees with Conor McLaughlin the player to miss out, the Northern Ireland international dropping to the bench.

Shaun Hutchinson, who had spent time in hospital due to illness, is once again not in the hosts’ matchday 18.

Brentford are without Said Benrahma, who will miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury.

Millwall have won just one of their last seven fixtures against the Bees, who are looking to record their first league double over the South London outfit since the 1981-82 season.

But the Lions have won their last four Good Friday games, although it was the same opposition when they last failed to take maximum points in 2010.

Without Benrahma, the visitors will be looking for more inspiration from Neal Maupay – he has scored 23 goals and produced seven assists.

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

Brentford: Daniels, Odubajo, Canos, Maupay, Watkins, Nokotjo, Da Silva, Marcondes, Dalsgaard, Konsa, Sorensen. Subs: Balcombe, Sawyers, Ognene, Field, Racic, Forss, Oksanen.
