Match Preview

Lions missing Carter Millwall will be without Darren Carter when they host Reading. The midfielder, who is on loan from Preston, suffered an ankle injury during Saturday's draw at Nottingham Forest. Boss Kenny Jackett will therefore be hoping Liam Trotter, who missed out against Forest with a groin problem, passes a late fitness test to take his place in the centre. Striker Theo Robinson was an unused substitute at the City Ground after joining from Huddersfield and will hope to make his debut. Defender Tony Craig was also on the bench after recovering from the metatarsal injury he suffered in last season's play-off final. Strikers Shaun Batt (knee) and John Marquis (wrist) are still on the sidelines. Reading boss Brian McDermott has an unchanged squad available to him for the trip. The Royals picked up their first home win of the season against Crystal Palace on Saturday and will line up in similar shape at the New Den. Striker Shane Long was in superb form against the Eagles, winning two penalties with his running and converting one. Ian Harte scored on his debut from the second spot-kick and will continue at left-back, leaving summer signing Marcus Williams on the bench. Midfielder Brynjar Gunnarsson may find two games in four days too much so Michail Antonio could come in. Right-back Andy Griffin remains out with a hamstring injury and midfielder Jay Tabb (ankle) and Julian Kelly (hamstring) are out. Club captain Ivar Ingimarsson and Chris Armstrong played for the reserves last week after lengthy absences but are not ready for consideration.

Match Report

Morison off the mark Steve Morison was uncharacteristically wasteful as Millwall were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Reading. The in-form striker, who went into the game having scored five goals in his last six games, could have had a hat-trick had it not been for a combination of good goalkeeping and poor finishing. The home side were nearly made to pay as Jem Karacan saw a fierce drive pushed onto the post by David Forde late on, but the game remained goalless. Millwall made two changes from the side held to a 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest on Saturday, with Tamika Mkandawire starting in the centre of midfield and Kevin Lisbie preferred to Neil Harris in attack. Forward Simon Church came in for Brynjar Gunnarsson as Reading boss Brian McDermott made just one change to his line-up. A torrential downpour just before kick-off continued during the early stages and made the playing conditions tricky. Reading winger Jobi McAnuff had the first chance of the game but his long-range effort cleared the crossbar. At the other end, Jimmy Abdou headed wide from six yards but it would not have counted as the midfielder was adjudged to be in an offside position. Adam Federici was called into action for the first time in the 16th minute when Morison burst into the box down the left and got his shot away, but the Australian goalkeeper was equal to his effort. Wales international Morison saw a cross-shot fly inches wide off the boot of team-mate Paul Robinson shortly afterwards as the Lions continued to make the early running. Reading responded, though, and were denied the opening goal by the linesman's flag in what was a very close call. McAnuff played a raking cross-field pass to Jimmy Kebe on the opposite flank and he fired home superbly on the volley. Unfortunately the winger`s celebrations were cut short. Federici came to the rescue again for the visitors after the Royals had been caught on the break, tipping a curling shot from Morison around the post after the striker had found himself one-on-one with the shot-stopper. Shane Long, Church and Brian Howard were all involved in an almighty goalmouth scramble for Reading, while Morison was again denied by Federici on the stroke of half-time after being sent clear. A quiet second half burst into life in the 62nd minute when McAnuff`s ball to the far post was met by Long but his close-range header was well blocked by Forde. Kebe had a word with the referee after claiming he had been hit by a missile from the crowd as Reading pushed for an opening goal. Howard forced a comfortable save from Forde with a 20-yard drive, before Karacan unleashed a piledriver from distance which was somehow tipped onto the post by Forde. Kebe had the last opportunity of the game, but the keeper easily gathered.
