Millwall v Burnley preview

Team news for Saturday's Championship clash between Millwall and Burnley at the New Den. Darren Carter could return to Millwall's squad for the visit of Burnley. The on-loan Preston midfielder has been out for three weeks with an ankle injury but is on the mend and will be given a late fitness test. But striker Kevin Lisbie looks set to miss out with the knee injury which sidelined him for the midweek goalless draw at leaders QPR, while midfielder Liam Trotter serves the second game of a three-match ban for his red card at Cardiff last Saturday. Defender Andrew Frampton (ankle) and strikers Shaun Batt (knee) and John Marquis (wrist) are still in the treatment room. Veteran forward Neil Harris was a substitute at Loftus Road and could return to the starting line-up if boss Kenny Jackett reverts to two up front at home. Burnley boss Brian Laws has no fresh injury or suspension worries for the match at the New Den. Laws will find it difficult to change a starting XI who performed so well in the 4-0 midweek hammering of Hull, but veteran Graham Alexander will be hoping to earn a recall after he was an unused substitute against the Tigers. Striker Chris Iwelumo continues to play on despite a hamstring problem that has hampered him in recent weeks and will link up with the Scotland squad next week rather than rest the injury. Midfielder Chris McCann remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury. The Clarets are unbeaten in their last three league matches but have yet to record an away victory so far this season having racked up two draws and two defeats.
