Millwall manager Kenny Jackett expects to choose from an unchanged squad for the visit of Coventry.

Defender Tony Craig and striker Shaun Batt remain the only injury absentees for the Lions.

Craig is continuing his recovery from a fractured metatarsal and Batt recently underwent knee surgery which could rule him out of the entire season.

Jackett could name the same side which started the 2-1 Carling Cup win over Middlesbrough on Tuesday night.

However, Kevin Lisbie will be pushing for a start alongside Steve Morison in attack after club stalwart Neil Harris was preferred in midweek.

Scott Barron will start in defence again after penning a new three-year deal at The Den earlier this week.

Coventry are sweating on the fitness of striker Lukas Jutkiewicz and goalkeeper Michael Quirke.

Jutkiewicz suffered a knee injury shortly after scoring the opening goal from the penalty spot in the Sky Blues' 2-1 win over Derby last week.

Coventry back-up keeper Michael Quirke, has a suspected dislocated finger and both players face a race against time to be fit.

Despite collecting two wins and a draw from their opening three fixtures, manager Aidy Boothroyd believes his side can improve, but he has targeted a win over the Lions to stand them in good stead as the international break looms.

"I thought we did OK on Saturday (against Derby). We've managed to get by on grit, determination and some organisational qualities. We know it's going to take some time before we start playing fast free-flowing football," Boothroyd told Sky Blues Player.

"We have a very difficult game coming up. It'll be our hardest one yet I believe but if we can get something from this game, it will have given us a strong solid start going into the international week."
