Millwall's promotion bid is set for a major boost with the news Gary Alexander could make the bench for the visit of Brentford.

Last season's top scorer has been sidelined since October with a heel problem which eventually required surgery.

But Alexander has resumed training this week and manager Kenny Jackett says he will include the striker if he is fit enough.

Alexander's return means that, for a change, Millwall have a clean bill of health going into the derby clash.

Fellow frontman Neil Harris has shaken off his recent back problem and should start in attack alongside 18-goal leading scorer Steve Morison.

The Lions have won 11 of their last 13 matches to move onto the shoulder of second-placed Leeds.

Brentford boss Andy Scott has no fresh injury worries.

The Bees are still without defenders Mark Phillips (knee) and Ryan Dickson (hamstring), both of whom could struggle to play again this season.

Goalkeeper Nikki Bull is the only other absentee with his long-term shoulder injury.

Skipper Kevin O'Connor has been shifted to right-back for the last two games with David Hunt recalled to the midfield, and that looks set to continue after back-to-back wins.

Striker Ben Strevens came on at half-time during Tuesday night's 3-2 victory at Oldham in place of midfielder Marcus Bean and is pushing for a start alongside Charlie MacDonald, who took his tally for the season to 14 with a brace.
