Dunne doubtful for Lions

Millwall will check on Alan Dunne ahead of the visit of Middlesbrough.

Right-back Dunne suffered a badly-gashed knee during last weekend's 3-2 defeat at Blackburn and was replaced by Justin Hoyte.

But Hoyte cannot play as he is on loan from Boro while boss Steve Lomas admitted he was considering changes at the back anyway following the Ewood Park display, so Danny Shittu and Shane Lowry are in contention for recalls.

Boro old-boy Nicky Bailey (knee) and fellow midfielders Richard Chaplow (groin) and Lee Martin (hamstring) are still out so Lomas has recalled Josh Wright from his loan at Leyton Orient.

Middlesbrough defender Jonathan Woodgate is battling against injury to be ready for Saturday evening's trip.

The 33-year-old limped off at half-time in the 1-0 home defeat by Brighton with a thigh problem and his condition is being assessed ahead of the game at the Den.

Striker Marvin Emnes missed the defeat by the Seagulls with a slight hamstring injury, but he has a chance of returning after nursing the strain this week.

However, goalkeeper Jason Steele (ankle), striker Kei Kamara (knee) and full-back Andy Halliday (hernia) will not be involved.
