Team News

Alfa Semedo, Carl Jenkinson and Yohan Benalouane have all returned from injury in the last week or so. Sabri Lamouchi may decide to include all three in the travelling party which will make the trip to London.

Semedo is the most likely to start. He has impressed off-the-bench against both Queens Park Rangers and Cardiff City. Ryan Yates remains suspended after picking up a three-match ban against QPR.

As for Millwall, Gary Rowett’s squad has been hit by a crippling injury crisis recently.

Shaun Hutchinson, Shane Ferguson, Ryan Leonard, Shaun Williams and Jed Wallace have all had setbacks of varying extents recently and could be doubts.

Match Preview

Millwall will go head-to-head with the Reds knowing that a win could close the gap between themselves and the play-off places.

The Lions are unbeaten in four and have been in good form under the management of Rowett. Only six teams have picked up more points at home than the Lions.

Forest will be hoping to return to winning ways and maintain their position inside the top six of the Championship in the process.

Despite Saturday’s defeat to Cardiff City, the Reds remain fourth in the table. Lamouchi’s men mustered up over 30 shots against the Bluebirds, but weren’t able to find the back of the net.

Lamouchi will be hoping that his side can continue their good away record so far this season. They have already picked up five away wins, and have only lost once away at Wigan Athletic.

With several games on the horizon, Lamouchi might be tempted to make a few changes to his side.

 

Middlesbrough visit the City Ground on Tuesday and that’s likely to be just as an important game.

Likely Line-Ups

Millwall (4-4-1-1): Białkowski; Romeo, Pearce, Cooper, Wallace; Skalak, Molumby, Williams, Wallace; Thompson; Smith.

Forest (4-2-3-1): Samba; Cash, Figueiredo, Worrall, Robinson; Watson, Semedo; Lolley, Silva, Ameobi; Grabban.

One to watch

With seven goals and four assists already this season it’s hard to look beyond Jed Wallace as the one to watch.

The former Portsmouth and Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder has been in the form of his life in recent weeks. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Lions struggled to keep hold of him in January.

The 25-year-old is usually utilised on the right-hand side, but can be deployed further forward. According to a report in the Express via Birmingham Live, Wallace is a £10 million target for Aston Villa.

Some tickets do remain for away supporters. They can be purchased from the ticket office online and in person.
