Injury ruled out Alan Browne, the skipper's place in midfield taken by Jayson Molumby who had been on the bench for the last two matches.

Molumby will feel at home at The Den having spent last season with the Lions on loan from Brighton.

Millwall saw a £1.5m bid for Molumby rejected by Brighton in January, with him instead joining North End on loan until the end of the season.
