Yann Kermorgant: Should be fit to face Millwall

The French striker, who has scored three goals this season, missed Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield with an ankle injury.

"He should be okay," said Powell.

"It would have been a risk to play him on Tuesday, because of the knock he took on Saturday at Watford.

"I hope his powers of recovery are very good because he will be a big plus for us if he's fit.

"It's a local derby and a lot happens in games like that.

"We have got to be ready for playing against a side that are three miles down the road. There's a lot of local pride at stake and all the players will have to be recovered and ready to really put in a big effort against them on Saturday."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
