Therry Racon has been ruled out of Millwall's first home game of the season against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder, a summer signing from Charlton, suffered an ankle injury on his Lions debut against Plymouth in midweek and is facing at least a month on the sidelines.

Strikers Josh McQuoid and Shaun Batt are boss Kenny Jackett's only other injury absentees.

McQuoid misses out with groin trouble while Batt, who is finally on the mend after a year on the sidelines, has suffered a calf strain which will stop him training for 10 days.

On-loan Leicester forward Dany N'Guessan could keep his place after his debut goal sank Plymouth.

Goalkeeper David Forde returns after international duty with the Republic of Ireland.

Lee Camp will return in goal for Nottingham Forest at Millwall.

The highly-rated goalkeeper missed the Carling Cup clash with city rivals Notts County in midweek as he was away on international duty with Northern Ireland. He will replace Paul Smith between the posts at The Den.

Chris Gunter also missed the cup tie as he was away with Wales and manager Steve McClaren must decide whether to restore him to the starting line-up or stick with Brendan Moloney.

Midfielder George Boateng is likely to come back into the team while new signing Matt Derbyshire will challenge fellow forwards David McGoldrick, Robbie Findley, Marcus Tudgay and Joe Garner for a starting place.
