Jiri Skalak, Ben Amos and Murray Wallace all make their first competitive starts for Millwall in tonight’s League Cup tie against Gillingham.
The three summer captures are named in Neil Harris’ starting 11 as the Championship side have named a strong squad that will be expected to see off the Kent outfit.
Byron Webster, who grafted hard to return from a knee injury to land himself a new Lions deal, partners Wallace in the middle of the Lions defence.
Skalak, snapped up from Brighton just before the start of the season, played the closing stages of Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Blackburn Rovers.
Millwall: Amos, McLaughlin, Webster, M Wallace, Meredith, Skalak, Tunnicliffe, Thompson, Ferguson, Elliott, Onyedinma. Subs: Archer, Cooper, J Wallace, Gregory, O’Brien, Romeo.
Gillingham: Holy, O’Neill, Garmston, Lacey, Ehmer, Hanlan, Eaves, Charles-Cook, Reilly, Parker, Byrne. Subs: Hadler, Wilkinson, Fuller, Nasseri, Nash, Simpson, Stevenson.
