Millwall will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run to five games against Huddersfield Town, who are without a win in their last two.

The Lions 2-0 win in the week against Preston North End moved them up to fourth in the table and just one point off the automatic places. 

Huddersfield fell to a 2-1 home defeat against Birmingham on Wednesday night and will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday. 

• Team news

Millwall boss, Gary Rowett, has the same squad available to him as he did in his sides midweek win. Tottenham Hotspur loanee Troy Parrott remains sidelined, after suffering an ankle injury back in September. 

New signing, Kenneth Zahore, is likely to keep his place in the starting XI after scoring on his full debut in the week. 

Huddersfield are still without centre-half Tommy Elphick, who is still struggling with an injury, whilst Senegal International Naby Sarr, is still suspended after picking up a red card two weeks ago. 

Terriers frontman, Danny Ward, is still a doubt as he recovers from a hamstring issue picked up in September. Aside from that, Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan has a fully fit squad to chose from as his side look to improve on recent results.

• Predicted lineups

Millwall:

Bialkowski, Cooper, Hutchinson, Wallace, Romeo, Malone, Leonard, Woods, Bennett, Wallace, Zahore.

Huddersfield Town:

Hamer, Toffolo, Schindler, Stearman, Pipa, Eiting, O'Brien, Koroma, Bacuna, Mbenza, Campbell.

Milwall are likely to remain unchanged after their impressive win away at Preston, whilst Huddersfield could opt to start wide-man Isaac Mbenza, after he came off the bench to score in his sides defeat to Birmingham. 

• Ones to watch

Millwall's newest recruit, Zahore, made the starting 11 for the first time since joining from West Bromwich Albion against Preston and he topped off his debut with a well-taken goal.

Since the start of the season, Milwall have kept four clean sheets out of a possible eight. Englishman, Jake Cooper, has played an important part in the Lions resolute defence and is a danger in both boxes, scoring once this season already.

Lion's dangerman Jed Wallace  has also started the season in very good form, scoring four and assisting one in eight games. 

As for Corberan's Huddersfield side - forward Fraizer Campbell has two goals to his name so far this season and full-back, Harry Toffolo, has notched two assists. 

Since Corberan's arrival, the Terriers have based their game on dominating large spells of possession and they currently sit third in the average possession table with 57%, so keep an eye out for their slick build-up and movement. 

• Previous meetings

Out of these two side's last eight meetings, Huddersfield have won five, Millwall have won two and there has been one draw. 

Milwall have however had more joy in recent times, picking up four points from Huddersfield last season, their latest result being a 4-1 win to the East Londoners. 

Milwall took an early lead last time out, with a goal from Connor Mohoney in the fourth minute but that was cancelled out before half time with an equaliser from ex Terrier, Karlan Grant.

The Lions then went on to boss the second half, with goals from Jake Cooper, Jiri Skalak and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson securing a comfortable 4-1 win.
