Henry back for capital clash

Millwall welcome back James Henry for the local derby with Charlton.

The winger sat out through suspension as the Lions extended their unbeaten run to 12 games with a 1-0 win at Wolves in midweek.

Henry is expected to return to the side in the place of Liam Feeney, who deputised at Molineux but boss Kenny Jackett will not be tempted into further changes.

He is still without midfielder Liam Trotter and striker Darius Henderson (both hamstring) but fellow forward Shaun Batt is available after a calf problem and could make the bench.

Millwall have won their last four matches and sit just six points off the top of the table. They could move up to third if they repeat the result the last time they welcomed Charlton - a 4-0 victory in 2010.

Charlton are sweating on the fitness of Ricardo Fuller.

The striker suffered a hamstring injury during the club's 2-0 win over Peterborough in midweek and will be assessed ahead of the trip.

Fuller scored the opener against the Championship strugglers as Chris Powell's side recorded their fourth win in five.

Fellow forward Rob Hulse was dropped to the bench in midweek, as Charlton faced their second game in four days, and could return in the place of Fuller if the Jamaican striker is ruled out.

If Fuller is available, Powell has the welcome headache of choosing between the duo and Yann Kermorgant, who have all scored in their last starts.

Defender Michael Morrison misses the game through suspension after picking up his fifth booking of the season against Peterborough, but Danny Haynes (hamstring) and midfielder Lawrie Wilson (thigh) are back in contention.
