Millwall Vs Swindon Town, Sat 8 May 2010

Millwall are sweating on the fitness of top goalscorer Steve Morison ahead of the crunch season finale against Swindon.

Morison has undergone a scan on a niggling hamstring problem and is rated doubtful by boss Kenny Jackett.

Last season's top scorer Gary Alexander has made three substitute appearances since recovering from a serious heel injury and could be pitched in for his first start since October if Morison is ruled out.

Player of the year Alan Dunne (foot) and fellow defender Tony Craig (ankle) are still on the sidelines along with winger Danny Schofield (calf).

The Lions go into the clash knowing victory would see them promoted automatically back to the Championship if Leeds do not beat Bristol Rovers.

Vincent Pericard is again likely to miss out for Swindon.

Despite seeing a specialist in a bid to speed up his recovery, the frontman is still struggling with the sore heel that ruled him out of last weekend`s 3-2 triumph over Brentford.

That win, combined with Charlton`s victory over Leeds, has kept Danny Wilson`s side in with a shout of a top-two finish right up until the final day.

Should Leeds win at home to Bristol Rovers then they will clinch second spot, but any other result would open the door for Swindon, Millwall or Charlton to snatch automatic promotion from under their nose.

Winger Alan O`Brien (hamstring) returned to the bench last Saturday and should be included in Wilson`s matchday 18 once again, but Kurt Hammonds (knee) remains in the treatment room.

Wilson rotated his ranks against the Bees in a bid to end a four-match winless run, with Lescinel Jean-Francois, Craig Easton and Frank Nouble coming in for regulars Charlie Austin, Simon Ferry and Scott Cuthbert. And it remains to be seen how he will line up at the Den.
