Millwall manager Kenny Jackett believes whoever steps in for missing trio Paul Robinson, Lewis Grabban and Marc Laird at Leeds on Monday night will be "good enough to compensate".

Robinson broke a bone in his foot against Scunthorpe and Grabban strained a hamstring in the same match, while Laird sits out a one-game ban under the totting-up procedure.

Jackett said: "I've been very pleased by the form of all three players, who have contributed massively to where we are in the table at the moment.

He added: "But I am confident that we have players good enough to compensate while they are out."

New signing Richard Duffy, Ali Fuseini, Jimmy Abdou, Ashley Grimes, Chris Hackett and Izale McLeod are all vying for a place in the starting line-up.
