Kenny Jackett: Pondering defensive changes

Millwall threw away a 3-0 lead to be held 3-3 by Birmingham at home on Tuesday night - and although they are currently on a five-match unbeaten run, four of those fixtures have ended in draws.

Loan striker Chris Wood is expected to continue up front after grabbing a brace against Lee Clark's Blues. The 20-year-old New Zealand international, who is with the Lions until Christmas, has now scored three goals in seven games for the south Londoners.

Chris Taylor is looking to keep his place after netting his first goal for the club in midweek, but Andy Keogh is pressing for a start after he made his return from concussion as a second-half substitute in that match, and James Henry could be declared fit after missing the last two matches with a tight hamstring.

Jackett could contemplate making changes defensively but is still without veteran Paul Robinson who is expected to be out for a further six weeks with a pelvic problem.

Shane Lowry is hoping for the nod at left-back after replacing Jack Smith at half-time on Tuesday.

Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson will monitor several players who are carrying knocks.

Grayson was giving no clues as to who may be struggling for fitness following the midweek defeat at Peterborough, but "one or two" may require late fitness tests.

Defender Paul Dixon and winger Adam Hammill, on loan from Wolves, are both pushing for recalls to the starting line-up after stepping off the substitutes' bench early in the second half in Tuesday night's 3-1 defeat.

Grayson confirmed he will not be making many changes following his side's third defeat in five league matches, but defender Joel Lynch is another player looking to force his way back into the starting line-up following suspension and injury.

Midfielder Oscar Gobern, yet to appear for Huddersfield in the league this season, is the only long-term absentee following ankle surgery.
