Latics came from behind twice on Friday, with Caldwell praising the efforts of his players after just two days preparation with a change in style.

Jermaine Pennant came away from Craven Cottage with tight hamstrings, but Caldwell insisted the goal scorer would be fine.  Andrew Taylor and Don Cowie have also rejoined the main group for training following short term injuries.

Millwall could welcome back on loan Southampton defender Jos Hooiveld after he missed their 2-0 defeat to Watford at the weekend, with Paris Cowan Hall also hoping to be involved.  Carlos Edwards remains sidelined.

Tickets for this fixture are available on the night at the Den, with live screening tickets also still available, for details on both please [click here].

MILLWALL IN 2015



It's been a difficult four months of the year for the Lions, winning three, drawing four and losing 10 of their Sky Bet Championship fixtures.

Victories over Nottingham Forest (1-0 away) and Birmingham City (1-0 away) came at the end of January and beginning of February, but a run of seven games without another win saw Ian Holloway's contract terminated in early March.

Millwall's goal scoring legend Neil Harris (pictured above) has taken interim charge, recording his first victory in this current stint as caretaker, a 2-1 triumph at home to Charlton Athletic on Good Friday, with Magaye Gueye and Hooiveld on target.

Latics are level points with Millwall as it stands, but Harris' side have a game in hand against Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday 21 April.

January, February and March were busy months in the transfer market at the Den, with Cowan-Hall, Stefan Maierhofer and Shaun Cummings all permanent additions, alongside the loan signings of Hooiveld, Dan Harding, Michael Tonge, Jordan Archer and Gary Taylor-Fletcher.

Outgoings were Josh Wright, Scott Malone, Jermaine Easter and Scott McDonald all on permanent transfers, with Stephen Bywater, Tom Bender, Matthew Briggs, Byron Webster, John Marquis and Richard Chaplow departing on loan.

MAN TO WATCH - LEE GREGORY



Millwall's leading goal scorer with six goals in 24 starts, Gregory joined the Lions in June 2014 after a sensational season in the Conference with Halifax Town, which saw him score 31 times in 39 games.

The 26-year-old has found the net against Birmingham City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Norwich City and in both fixtures against Brentford, as well as a winning goal away to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Latics repeated the scoreline in the reverse fixture, with goals from Nathan Ellington and Roberts once more.

Latics' team for the day was: Filan, Wright, Breckin, Jackson, Baines, Teale (Eaden 79), Bullard, Frandsen, McCulloch, Roberts, Ellington
