Millwall unlikely to make changes for Bolton clash

Millwall unlikely to make changes for Bolton clash

Millwall are expected to retain much of the team that claimed a 3-1 win at Northampton when they host Bolton in Sky Bet League One.

If manager Neil Harris makes changes to his starting XI in preparation for a second game in four days, substitute Shane Ferguson is among those likely to come into contention.

Tuesday's fixture is, however, expected to come too soon for Shaun Cummings and Shaun Hutchinson.

Both were scheduled to feature in an Under-23 fixture against Crystal Palace on Monday as they continue to build their match fitness.

Bolton are hopeful Tom Thorpe will not have to come out of their XI.

The midfielder featured in the win over Oldham on Saturday despite struggling with a virus and lasted 78 minutes before being replaced by Derik Osede, who is only just back from injury himself.

Max Clayton (knee) is back in training but is still considered some way off a first-team return while Darren Pratley is making good progress on his rehabilitation from a broken leg.

Chris Taylor may return to the squad against his old club following illness, yet Dean Moxey (groin), Lewis Buxton and Mark Davies (both knee) are still sidelined.
