Millwall will check on Steve Morison ahead of the visit of Gillingham.

The in-form striker, who has hit eight goals in his last seven matches, is expected to shake off a slight knock in time to lead the line.

Boss Kenny Jackett has received a further attacking boost with the news Gary Alexander could be on the bench.

Alexander, last season's top scorer, has been sidelined since October with a heel injury which eventually required surgery but he has trained all week and will declare himself fit.

Jackett has an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from and could name the same starting line-up for the fourth straight game.

The Lions are unbeaten in nine games and lie a point behind second-placed Swindon.

Gillingham manager Mark Stimson could be without Denis Oli.

The striker was substituted during the 3-0 win over Southend and is now rated 50/50 to play at The Den due to a hip flexor injury.

Top scorer Simeon Jackson will again start, though, after returning from a hamstring injury in Monday`s game with the Shrimpers but Simon King is not likely to play again this season after damaging ankle ligaments.

The Gills are just outside the relegation zone and Stimson is hoping to move further away from the pack with a win.

"It is a big difference to playing Southend because they are fighting for an automatic promotion place but it is a game we will look forward too," he told Press Association Sport.

"We would love to get a win because our away form has been poor this season. We are looking to turn it around in every game and this one will be no different."
