Blackpool manager Ian Holloway is expected to name an unchanged side for the visit of the Lions.

Lomana LuaLua, Callum McManaman and Ludovic Sylvestre were drafted into the starting line-up as the Seasiders ran riot with a 5-0 win over Leeds at Elland Road on Wednesday.

LuaLua - who scored a brace on his full debut - and McManaman were part of an impressive front three alongside hat-trick hero Jonjo Shelvey, meaning top-scorer Kevin Phillips is set for a place on the bench once more.

Gary Taylor-Fletcher remains on the sidelines with a pelvis problem, while Elliot Grandin continues his rehabilitation from a foot injury.

Billy Clarke and Matt Phillips return from their loans at Sheffield United next week and will add yet more competition to Holloway's forward line after the international break.

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett has no new injury worries ahead of the trip.

Defender Jordan Stewart and strikers John Marquis and Shaun Batt remain the in-form Lions' only injury absentees.

Full-back Stewart has been out for three weeks with a groin problem, Marquis is still recovering from a hernia operation and Batt is building up his fitness after a cruciate injury.

Jackett has named the same starting line-up for the past three matches and seen his side pick up three wins, scoring 10 goals and conceding just once.

However, winger James Henry is pushing for a start after his introduction from the bench following a goalless first half helped spark Tuesday's 3-0 victory over Coventry.

Alexis Sanchez: Really Not THAT Good

The backlash has begun: Why are Barca letting him go if he's any good? We have mails on Alexis Sanchez, Luis Suarez, the World Cup and the wonder of F365...

Oh and honey, put the kettle on. We have more World Cup mails but it's mostly an orgasmic explosion at the signing of Alexis Sanchez. Could this be Arsenal's year?
