Rolando Aarons, Alex Vallejo and Ryan Schofield are all set to be side-lined whilst loanees Levi Colwill and Faustino Anjorin are both reportedly fully fit and could make a return to the starting lineup. Josh Koroma may also feature as the forward trained following his bout of illness, which forced him to miss the game at the Hawthorns.

  • Form guide

Millwall – WWWDD

The Lions are unbeaten in their last five league matches with three consecutive wins putting them in play-off contention, although two draws in their last two games against fellow promotion chasers Blackburn Rovers and Middlesbrough has seen them slip into 11th place. Albeit three points behind sixth-placed Sheffield United.

Huddersfield – WWWWD

The Terriers' recent form has them pushing for an automatic promotion spot, however, the side has played three games more than second-placed Bournemouth. A disappointing draw in their last match against the Baggies having been 2-0 up, meant the Terriers were unable to move level on points with the Cherries.

  • Ones to watch

Jed Wallace

The versatile winger has been a source of goals for the Lions this season with 15 contributions already to his name, taking his goal participation to 41%. Heavily linked with a move away last January, Wallace decided to stay and help the promotion push at Millwall.

Sorba Thomas

The Welsh winger has been a threat down the right-hand side for Huddersfield all season, causing chaos for fullbacks who come up against him. The 23-year-old has 10 league assists this season, the highest in the entire team. Thomas has been involved in 27% of the Terriers' goals this season so Millwall will have to be alert to the danger.

  • Previous meetings

In their last six meetings, Huddersfield have held the slight advantage having won three and drawing one. The Terriers won the reverse fixture 1-0 earlier on in the season, in which Jonathan Hogg scored an 82nd-minute winner. The last meeting at The Den for both sides saw the Terriers emerge as 3-0 winners on October 31, 2020.
