Millwall V Ipswich at The Den : Match Preview

14 August 2017
Ryan Tunnicliffe set to roar for Lions

Millwall midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe could make his Lions debut when they welcome Ipswich to the Den on Tuesday night.

The former Manchester United and Fulham player, who had a spell on loan with the Tractor Boys earlier in his career, is yet to turn out for Neil Harris' side since joining last month.

Jake Cooper could come back into the side having been on the bench for the 1-1 draw with Bolton last time out after recovering from an ankle injury.

Harris has no fresh injury concerns heading into the match as Millwall go in search of their first win since returning to the Sky Bet Championship.

Grant Ward is set to return to the Ipswich squad following a calf problem.

But injuries to Adam Webster (ankle) and Tommy Smith (back) mean manager Mick McCarthy is seeking to sign a defender this month.

Midfielder Flynn Downes is doubtful with a knock sustained in Saturday's 2-1 Championship win at Barnsley.

Adam McDonnell is in the squad, while fellow midfielder Luke Hyam is nearing a comeback after playing for the under-23s on Monday. Forward Kevin Bru is free to leave, McCarthy says.
