Lewis Grabban has been added to the Millwall squad ahead of the visit of London rivals Leyton Orient.

The winger was recalled early from his loan spell with Brentford by the Lions due to a number of injury worries which could derail their promotion bid.

Midfielder Liam Trotter and striker Shaun Batt are struggling with hamstring problems and will be checked over.

Left-back Tony Craig is out for a fortnight with an ankle injury but fellow defenders Alan Dunne (groin) and Andy Frampton (calf) have made timely recoveries to boost the backline.

Striker Gary Alexander played an hour for the reserves this week as he continues to build up his fitness after a long-term heel injury and is in contention to face his former club.

Leyton Orient are expected to be unchanged.

Boss Russell Slade stuck with the side which stunned leaders Norwich 2-1 a fortnight ago for last weekend's clash with Stockport and was rewarded with a 2-0 win.

Experienced striker James Scowcroft missed both games with a hamstring injury and is only likely to be among the substitutes if he is passed fit.

Eric Lichaj will keep his spot at right-back after extending his loan spell from Aston Villa, meaning regular skipper Stephen Purches will be on the bench again.

Midfielder John Spicer's initial loan spell from Doncaster ends after the game but his is also expected to extend his stay until the end of the season.

French forward Jonathan Tehoue (hamstring) is still out.
