Ipswich manager Roy Keane will have midfielders Jake Livermore and Jack Colback available again for game after the cup-tied duo missed the midweek win over Northampton.

Colback is expected to come into the starting line-up in place of either Carlos Edwards or Andros Townsend while Grant Leadbitter is struggling with a knee injury.

Teenage striker Connor Wickham will be out for around two weeks after he picked up an ankle injury in training last Sunday, so Jason Scotland will continue to partner Tamas Priskin in attack.

Goalkeeper Marton Fulop should also return in place of Brian Murphy as Town look for a first league win in four games.

Defenders Mark Kennedy (hamstring) and Darren O'Dea (knee) remain sidelined, with the latter out for around six weeks.

Millwall will have to do without Kevin Lisbie due to the terms of his loan deal from the Tractor Boys.

But fellow forward Neil Harris is in line to return to the squad after missing last weekend's 2-0 win over Derby.

Harris suffered an ankle injury in the warm-up prior to the midweek defeat by Portsmouth but has returned to training and should be on the bench.

Danny Shittu's impressive debut against Derby came to a premature end due to cramp but he will be fine to take his place in the back four.

Fellow defender Andy Frampton has joined Swindon on loan to build up his fitness after an ankle injury
