Millwall v Blackburn, Tuesday, 7.45pm
MILLWALL culd secure their Championship survival with victory in this game in hand, despite falling to a disappointing 3-0 loss at fellow strugglers Huddersfield last Saturday afternoon.
It was a second defeat in three for the Lions, who have now tasted victory only once in their last five league outings, but a decent run earlier in the season means they still have a four-point gap to the bottom three as it stands.
Shane Lowry serves the middle match of his three-game ban on Tuesday night while winger Chris Taylor will miss the rest of the campaign through a groin problem and both Sean St Ledger and Liam Trotter are doubtful to line-up for this one.
Blackburn were hammered by four goals at Watford on Saturday afternoon with Leon Best's late sending-off compounding the defeat and leaving them just two points above the relegation spots with two weeks to go.
Rovers won two matches at Ewood Park prior to that weekend defeat but that pair of victories remain their only three-point returns from their last 13 league attempts, with seven defeats now included in that run.
Striker Best will now miss the rest of the campaign through a three-match suspension after the weekend's dismissal but Colin Kazim-Richards and Grant Hanley return from their own bans and can feature in midweek.
This will be the fourth meeting between the sides this term, with Millwall winning the Championship encounter at Ewood Park 2-0, while an initial FA Cup tie ended 0-0 and the replay resulting in a 1-0 Lions victory at Blackburn.
Millwall have held the upper hand on their opponents this season and should secure their place in the Championship on Tuesday evening with a narrow win, leaving Rovers with a nervy fortnight ahead.
