Trio available for trip to the New Den

Wednesday will have Kieren Westwood, Barry Bannan and Dominic Iorfa available again for tomorrow’s trip to Millwall.

Westwood and Iorfa have both served their suspensions, while Bannan returned to full training today after the calf injury that ruled him out of last Saturday’s win over Barnsley, and caretaker boss Lee Bullen expects the midfielder to be ready to return, if selected.

We go into the game on top of the table after two wins out of two but Bullen could make changes to the squad to meet the demands of what he expects to be a real challenge against a physical Millwall side at the New Den.

He said: “We are under no illusions. It will be a really, really tough game both mentally and physically but the lads are in a good place at the moment and I believe they are ready for the challenge.”

Bullen could give a start to Massimo Luongo to add further strength to the midfield while one of the wingers, Jacob Murphy or Kadeem Harris, may move to the bench.

Kieran Lee, who has impressed in the first two games after his lengthy lay-off, might also drop out of the starting line-up as Bullen is aware of being careful in handling his return to competitive action.

Like Wednesday, Millwall have started the season in good form, with a league win over Preston and a draw at West Brom, followed by a midweek victory at the Hawthorns when they quickly returned there in the Carabao Cup.
