Jimmy Abdou will be missing from the Millwall side for the trip to Bristol City.
The midfielder picked up an ankle knock during the recent pre-season friendly against Hearts so Darren Carter, who joined this week on loan from Preston, goes straight into the starting line-up.
Striker Shaun Batt, who signed permanently from Peterborough over the summer, is the only other injury absentee.
Batt required an operation on the knee injury he suffered in a friendly against AFC Wimbledon and could be ruled out for the entire season.
Summer signings Tamika Mkandawire, James Henry and Kevin Lisbie are all pushing to make their debuts while new goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall is set to start on the bench with David Forde keeping the number one jersey.
