Lions sweat on duo

Millwall will check on Andy Keogh and Chris Taylor ahead of the visit of Barnsley.

Striker Keogh has been playing recently despite a broken toe but was forced to withdraw from the warm-up at Brighton on Tuesday night.

However, the Lions are confident the extra rest means he will be able to play on Saturday.

Winger Taylor came off with a knee knock early in the second half of the 2-2 draw on the south coast and he will be assessed.

Forward Darius Henderson was on the bench at Brighton after a hamstring injury and should be involved again.

Therefore skipper Paul Robinson is the only definite absentee with the defender continuing his recovery from a pelvic problem.

Barnsley's on-loan midfielder Akos Buzsaky has been added to the injured list.

The Hungary international, on loan from Portsmouth, sustained a hamstring injury during last week's home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday and could be replaced in the starting line-up by Jim O'Brien.

Teenager Reuben Noble-Lazarus and fellow striker Emile Sinclair, on loan from Peterborough, both missed the Owls defeat due to an ankle injury and a dead-leg respectively and are not expected to be included in manager Keith Hill's squad.

Midfielder Jacob Mellis has been sidelined for the last two games with a nasty dead-leg sustained in the recent defeat at Watford and remains unavailable.

Hill, who has no other new injury or suspension problems, could be tempted to recall striker Marlon Harewood and midfielder David Perkins to the starting line-up after both impressed as second-half substitutes against Wednesday.

The Tykes are chasing their first win in 12 league games.
