Millwall V Blackburn at The Den - Match Preview.
Duo missing for Lions
Chris Taylor and Shane Lowry will be missing from the Millwall squad which hosts Blackburn on Tuesday night.
Winger Taylor looks set to miss the rest of the season with the groin injury he suffered against Watford last week, and left-back Lowry is suspended for accumulating 15 bookings this season.
Boss Kenny Jackett also expects to be without Sean St Ledger and Liam Trotter.
St Ledger suffered an ankle injury and Trotter aggravated a knee problem during the FA Cup semi-final defeat by Wigan last weekend, and although both should be back before the end of the season they are unlikely to be ready by Tuesday.
Club captain Paul Robinson remains a long-term absentee with a pelvic injury.M
Blackburn will be boosted by the return of Grant Hanley and Colin Kazim-Richards as they continue their relegation battle.
Hanley and Kazim-Richards have missed the last two games through suspension but are now both expected to earn immediate recalls to caretaker manager Gary Bowyer's starting XI.
Bowyer saw his side take a major step back in their attempts to avoid the drop with a 4-0 defeat at Watford on Saturday and will be hoping for a much improved performance at the Den.
Leon Best will miss the rest of the season, however, after he was shown a straight red card for an off-the-ball tussle with Marco Cassetti at Vicarage Road.
Gael Givet is a doubt with a hamstring injury but Jason Lowe is hoping to recover from his hamstring injury in time to feature.
David Bentley has an outside chance of making a place on the substitutes bench following a knee problem but Jake Kean (knee), Paul Robinson (back/lung), Adam Henley (hamstring), Dickson Etuhu (knee), DJ Campbell (foot) and Martin Olsson (ankle) are all ruled out.M
