Carlisle will be without Darryl Duffy for the visit of Millwall.

The on-loan striker sustained a groin injury during the first half of Saturday's goalless draw with Wycombe and is due to have a scan to determine the extent of the problem.

Tom Taiwo was also forced off at the weekend and it remains to be seen whether or not he will be fit enough to feature. If he does fail to make it Paul Thirlwell, who replaced him against Wycombe, could deputise once again.

Marc Bridge-Wilkinson was an unused substitute at Adams Park following his return from a bruised toe and he will be hoping to retain his place in the squad.

But Joe Anyinsah is still recovering from hernia surgery, while Lenny Pidgeley (broken hand), Andy Cook (foot), Gavin Rothery (hernia) and David Raven (hip) also miss out.

Millwall will check on top scorer Neil Harris.

The 17-goal striker, who was named February's League One player of the month, was forced off with a knock during Saturday's 2-2 draw at Walsall.

Loanees Shaun Batt and Jon Obika will vie to replace Harris if he misses out.

Defender Jack Smith (hamstring) and midfielder Marc Laird (rib) returned on the bench on Saturday meaning striker Gary Alexander is the only definite absentee.

Alexander has begun light training following his heel operation and hopes to return to action before the end of the season.

The Lions have won seven of their last nine games and moved back into the play-off places following their point at the weekend.
