Steve Morison returns to the Millwall squad.

The Lions' 17-goal top scorer has completed the three-match ban he received for his red card against Bristol City, and the enforced break also gave him time to recover from a heel injury.

Morison is likely to partner teenager John Marquis, who hit three goals in two games over the Easter weekend, with Josh McQuoid dropping to the bench.

Veteran Neil Harris sits out the last game of his three-match suspension and fellow striker Kevin Lisbie is still sidelined with an ankle injury.

Right-back Alan Dunne (eye) and midfielder Liam Trotter (hip) could return after sitting out the 2-1 win at Scunthorpe on Easter Monday with knocks.

Swansea have been boosted by the expected availability of Fabio Borini and Mark Gower for their trip to Millwall.

On-loan Chelsea striker Borini bagged a first-half brace in Monday's 4-1 win over Ipswich before being replaced at half-time but the Italian should be okay to face the Lions.

Manager Brendan Rodgers told City's official website: "Fabio had a bit of swelling just above the ankle. He could have probably kept on playing but it was a good chance for him to have a rest."

Gower missed the game altogether due to a minor ankle problem of his own but he is also expected to be in contention at The Den.

After admitting Scott Sinclair is showing signs of tiredness, Rodgers may well again opt to once again start the 23-goal winger on the bench with Swans having already secured their play-off place.

On-loan striker Tamas Priskin has returned to parent club Ipswich after sustaining medial ligament damage which rules him out for the remainder of the season.
