EARLY TEAM NEWS

Speaking to iFollow Latics ahead of his side's trip to face Millwall in the Sky Bet Championship, Paul Cook said he has no fresh injury concerns to worry about.

"We've got the usual bumps and bruises, but nothing that will keep anybody from playing on Tuesday night.

"The long term injuries are going concerns, but we showed on Saturday exactly why we built this squad into what it is, because when you have a few players out, you need what we got against West Brom."

Latics will continue to be without midfielder Darron Gibson who is serving the second game of his three-match suspension for his red card at Preston North End, whilst Will Grigg, Michael Jacobs and Gavin Massey all continue to recover from hamstring injuries.

Should Antonee Robinson feature on Tuesday he will be making his 50th career appearance, and if Cook opts for Dan Burn, the defender will be making his 100th Latics appearance in all competitions.

Latics fell to a cruel defeat in the capital on Tuesday night as a Shaun Williams penalty and Steve Morison effort gave Millwall a 2-1 win at The Den.

Paul Cook’s side had taken the advantage on the stroke of half-time after Jed Wallace headed into his own goal but they couldn’t extend their lead early in the second-half as James Vaughan failed to convert when one-on-one with Ben Amos in the Millwall goal before he won a penalty which Josh Windass blazed over.

Cook made three changes to his side which beat West Bromwich Albion on Saturday as Kal Naismith, Callum Connolly and Vaughan all returned to the starting XI.

Latics started brightly and Lee Evans saw an early shot blocked before Ryan Leonard fired wide at the other end for the hosts.

Windass then had an opportunity for Latics in not too dissimilar fashion to that he scored from on Saturday at the DW Stadium as he latched onto Christian Walton’s long ball and fired wide from a tight angle on the left of the penalty area.

Cedric Kipre came to the rescue for Latics moments later as he cleared off the line from Wallace’s goal-bound effort before Reece James and Connolly both had chances on the stroke of half time, the former firing wide from a free-kick from the edge of the area before the latter headed narrowly over from an Evans corner.

However, Latics did get their lead with the final effort of the half as Evans’ set-piece delivery was headed into his own net by Wallace.

Four minutes after the restart Latics could have doubled their advantage as Windass left an Evans path cleverly to allow Vaughan to go through on goal against Amos, though he took a heavy touch and allowed the goalkeeper to close him down.

As the hour mark approached, the game took a decisive turn; first Latics were awarded a controversial penalty for a foul on Vaughan, though Windass couldn’t take advantage and blazed over from the spot. Moments later at the other end, James was penalised in equally controversial fashion and Williams made no mistake from the spot, firing past Walton.

Latics initially reacted well and Vaughan fired off target from 25 yards before the hosts began to create pressure on Latics penalty area, which eventually resulted in Morison tapping home from close range eight minutes from time.

In response, Chey Dunkley and Nick Powell both headed off target as Latics’ struggles on the road continue, albeit they had the chance to have wrapped the points up on this occasion.

Millwall FC: Amos; Meredith (O’Brien 45), Cooper, Wallace (Hutchinson 86), Williams, Romeo; Williams (Capt), Leonard, Ferguson; Elliott (Morison 65), Gregory.
Subs: 
Archer, Bradshaw, Tunnicliffe, Skalak.
