Millwall v West Bromwich Albion team line-ups: Lions unchanged for Den clash

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Millwall manager Neil Harris has stuck with the same side which started last weekend’s 3-2 defeat at Leeds United.

The only change for the Lions comes on the substitute bench, with Jiri Skalak replacing Shaun Hutchinson.

Millwall have Shane Ferguson unavailable as the Northern Ireland international serves the second of a three-game ban for his dismissal against Brighton in the FA Cup quarter-final.

Tom Bradshaw (knee) and Murray Wallace (ankle) are both out for the remainder of the season. Fred Onyedinma once again does not make the matchday 18.

West Brom, who have won all three matches under caretaker boss James Shan, have former Palace striker Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez up top – the pair have bagged just under 40 goals. The latter is on 19 for the current campaign and can become the first Baggies player since Kevin Phillips in the 2007-2008 season to notch 20 league goals in one season.

Millwall have not lost to Albion at The Den since 1987 – winning five and drawing two of the meetings since then.

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

West Bromwich Albion: Johnstone, Robson-Kanu, Johansen, Livermore, Brunt, Townsend, Gayle, Rodriguez, Adarabioyo, Hegazi, Holgate. Subs: Bond, Gibbs, Mears, Leko, Edwards, Harper, Murphy.
