Burnley boss Eddie Howe will be reluctant to make any changes when his side host the Lions.

The Clarets maintained their fine form with a 1-0 win at Hull on Tuesday night, their third straight Championship victory.

On-loan Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso marked his debut with the only goal at the KC Stadium and looks certain to spearhead the attack alongside Jay Rodriguez once again.

Delfouneso's arrival at Turf Moor has come as a timely boost for Howe as Charlie Austin has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder.

Fellow frontman Steven Thompson is sidelined for at least a month following a groin operation and Martin Paterson is also absent with a thigh injury.

Midfielder Chris McCann is edging closer to match fitness after a long-term knee injury.

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett will welcome Martin Rowlands back into his squad for the trip.

The on-loan QPR midfielder was ineligible to face his parent club QPR on Tuesday night but will return to the Lions squad.

Josh McQuoid returned to the bench as an unused substitute in the 2-0 win against the Hoops and will be hoping for some match action for the first time in over a month.

Fellow striker Kevin Lisbie is pushing for a recall after his 24-minute cameo in midweek, when he replaced Neil Harris.

Defender Darren Purse will be unavailable for the second time in a week as he completes a two-match ban for accumulating 10 bookings for the season.
