Team news


Owls – Reda Johnson stored a further 60 minutes under his belt after featuring for the Under-21s in their 3-2 win over Coventry on Monday.


The all-action left back is in contention to figure on Saturday.

 


Long term absentee Kieran Lee (hip) and Joe Mattock (knee) are ruled out for Wednesday, otherwise there are no further injury concerns for the Owls.


Jermaine Johnson will serve the final game of his three-match ban.


Millwall – Midfielder Liam Trotter has recovered from a knee operation and has returned to full training.


Trotter is expected to feature for Millwall Under-21s on Friday (2.00pm) but the clash at Hillsborough could come too soon for the 24-year-old.


Former Owls goalkeeper Stephen Bywater is expected to line up between the sticks, with David Forde sidelined following a knee operation.

 


The Lions have endured a tough start to the new term with three defeats and have failed to hit the back of the net thus far in the Championship.

Last meeting

 


9 April 2013
Millwall 1-2 Owls
(Abdou 2; Llera 40, Maguire 90)


One to watch – James Henry

 


The midfielder is one of Millwall’s longest-serving players having originally joined the club on loan from Reading in February 2009.


With an eye for goal and a dead ball specialist, Henry is likely to feature at Hillsborough having held down a regular place in the Lions’ engine room this season.
