Millwall manager Kenny Jackett could name an unchanged line-up.

Alan Dunne serves the second game of his two-match ban following his red card against Cardiff last month so Jack Smith is set to continue at right-back.

Centre-half Darren Purse, who has just signed a new one-year contract, remains a doubt with the calf injury which kept him out of last weekend's 1-0 win at Hull.

Midfielder Jimmy Abdou faces another couple of weeks out with a knee problem and striker Shaun Batt is a long-term absentee with a cruciate injury.

But Jackett has reported no new injury worries as his side bid to close the gap on the top six.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson is playing his cards close to his chest.

Grayson admitted he has a few injury concerns but refused to reveal which players were struggling.

Midfielder Jonny Howson made a scoring return to the side in the 4-1 victory over Nottingham Forest at Elland Road.

The skipper had been out with a hamstring injury which forced him to withdraw from the England Under-21s squad.

Long-term absentee Patrick Kisnorbo remains sidelined with the Achilles injury he picked up against the Lions 13 months ago.

Striker Billy Paynter will also miss out as he serves the second match of his three-game ban following his dismissal at Sheffield United.
