Millwall Vs Charlton Athletic, Sat 13 Mar 2010

Millwall striker Neil Harris is hoping to be fit for the eagerly-awaited south London derby visit of Charlton.

The Lions' record goalscorer suffered a knee injury against Walsall last weekend which forced him to miss Tuesday night's win at Carlisle.

However, the problem is only an impact injury and Harris has a good chance of being ready to face the Addicks.

The only other player in the treatment room is Harris' fellow striker Gary Alexander, who is continuing his recovery from a heel operation.

Alexander, who has been on the sidelines in October, has begun light jogging as he attempts to make a comeback before the end of the season.

Charlton's last competitive visit to The Den was back in 1995 while the two sides fought out a thrilling 4-4 draw at The Valley earlier this term.

The Addicks have a headache at left-back ahead of the short trip across the capital.

On-loan Notts County midfielder Johnnie Jackson was filling in at the back in the absence of injured duo Kelly Youga (knee) and Grant Basey (ankle).

But he is now crocked as well after suffering a hamstring injury which has cut short his spell at the club.

Youga is back in training after more than three months out but is unlikely to be risked so young right-back Chris Solly, centre-half Miguel Llera or midfielder Jose Semedo will have to step in.

Sam Sodje will return at centre-back if Llera is shifted across.

Striker Deon Burton has recovered from a groin injury but Akpo Sodje should keep his place in attack after his goal against Stockport last weekend.
