Shaun Batt and Danny Schofield could be added to the Millwall squad for the second leg of their play-off semi-final against Huddersfield.

Striker Batt missed Saturday's goalless draw in the first leg due to a muscle twinge and winger Schofield sat out with a calf strain.

Both players will be handed late fitness checks but another wideman, Chris Hackett, has not recovered from a groin injury in time.

Defender and player of the year Alan Dunne is the only other injury absentee with a foot problem.

Top scorer Steve Morison started at the Galpharm Stadium despite a dead leg and came through unscathed.

The Lions are bidding for a second successive trip to Wembley having lost last season's final to Scunthorpe.

Huddersfield will be without defender Tom Clarke after he suffered a knee injury on Saturday was replaced during the closing stages by Robbie Williams.

Boss Lee Clark is expected to switch Lee Peltier to right-back and recall Williams to his starting line-up, although Dean Heffernan provides an alternative option.

Midfielder Danny Drinkwater, on loan from Manchester United, also limped off late on on Saturday but he was suffering from cramp and should start.

Nathan Clarke, Theo Robinson, Robbie Simpson and Nathan Eccleston were all unused substitutes in the first leg and will be anxious to play some part in the Terriers' bid to reach their first play-off final since 2004.
