Millwall will check on top scorer Steve Morison ahead of the trip to Derby.

The 11-goal Wales striker missed Saturday's 3-0 win over south London rivals Crystal Palace with flu.

Full-back Alan Dunne serves the second game of a three-match ban following his red card against Leicester so Jack Smith is set to deputise again.

Skipper Paul Robinson and fellow centre-half Danny Shittu could miss out once more with hamstring problems.

Neil Harris returned to action as a late substitute against Palace following a back injury and will be on the bench again but fellow frontman Shaun Batt (knee) is still on the sidelines.

Saturday's hat-trick hero Jason Puncheon plays the last match of his loan spell from Southampton.

Dean Moxey returns to the Derby squad.

The left-sided player served a one-match suspension as the Rams halted a five-game losing streak with victory against Preston.

Boss Nigel Clough made five changes at Deepdale following the defeat by East Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest and could shuffle his pack once again.

Chris Porter made his first start of the season on New Year's Day but two games in three days could be too much for the striker after so long out with hip problems.

He could be replaced by Alberto Bueno while fellow forward Steve Davies, midfielder Tomasz Cywka and defender Dean Leacock could also be recalled.
