Fred Onyedinma’s lack of game time at Millwall is not down to injury or fitness issues.
The 22-year-old attacker, left, has played just eight minutes of Championship football this season. He was recalled from his loan at League One Wycombe Wanderers in early January but has managed only one late substitute appearance since.
Onyedinma, who has featured 151 times for the South London outfit, has not made the matchday 18 for the last three fixtures.
“Fred is training and available for selection,” said Lions manager Neil Harris. “However, I choose a team based on various factors.
“Those factors are form from previous games and we look at the opposition’s strengths and weaknesses – how we can affect them. But a lot is based on mentality and desire to want to play.
“Players who want to impress and knock on my door – who want to play – then you train with the hunger and mentality to want to be in that starting 11 or 18 on a Saturday.”
Ben Thompson has recovered from the knock which forced him off at Leeds and is fit to face West Bromwich Albion tomorrow.
