Lowry banned for Lions

Millwall will be without Shane Lowry when they host leaders Blackpool.

Lowry was sent off during Saturday's 5-1 drubbing by Derby, which left the Lions rock bottom of the Championship, and starts a three-game ban.

But fellow defender Alan Dunne is back from suspension and striker Steve Morison is poised to return to the squad after a month on the sidelines following hernia surgery.

Midfielder Liam Trotter could start his first game of the season having made two substitute appearances since recovering from a summer knee operation, but forward Jermaine Easter is set to miss out again with a hamstring problem.

Blackpool boss Paul Ince will be without defender Jack Robinson for the trip.

The on-loan Liverpool left-back will serve a one-match ban after he picked up two bookings in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Bournemouth.

The league-leaders will hand a late fitness test to defender Craig Cathcart, who has missed the Tangerines' last three matches with a knee injury.

On-loan right-back Bradley Orr, who made his debut against the Cherries, is in contention to make his first start for the club.
