Millwall v Forest team line-ups: Hosts unchanged as ex-Lion Grabban starts at The Den

Millwall are unchanged for today’s home game against Nottingham Forest – with their former striker Lewis Grabban starting for the visitors.

That is the only change made by the visitors with Lyle Taylor, also up against his ex-club, dropping to the bench.

Millwall are still without Kenneth Zohore (calf), Connor Mahoney (quad) and Billy Mitchell (hamstring). There is also no Scott Malone, Ryan Woods and Shane Ferguson as Lions boss Gary Rowett names youngsters like Junior Tiensia, Tyler Burey and Hayden Muller as substitutes.

The Lions chief has kept faith with the side and formation – 4-2-3-1 – which saw them end a 10-match winless run with a 2-0 success at Bristol City in midweek.

The South Londoners have only won twice at home this season and one of those was in an EFL Cup tie against League Two club Cheltenham Town. But they are unbeaten in their last five games against Forest.

Chris Hughton’s team have conceded at least two goals in their last four away fixtures.

Forest are boosted by the return from suspension of Anthony Knockaert and Tobias Figueiredo, who boost their options if they need to switch things up in SE16.

Luke Freeman, Jack Colback, Tyler Blackett and Fouad Bachirou are all injured.

Millwall: Bialkowski, Romeo, Cooper, Hutchinson, M Wallace, Leonard, Williams, J Wallace, Bennett, Bradshaw, Bodvarsson. Subs: Fielding, Thompson, Smith, Pearce, Parrott, Skalak, Tiensia, Burey, Muller.
