‘It will be a battle’ – Leicester boss wary of Millwall’s threat and makes squad rotation admission

Leicester City boss Enzo Marseca says he will have to make changes to his side for Tuesday’s night clash at Millwall – and is predicting a battle against Neil Harris’ Lions.

The Foxes head to the Den having secured a late 2-1 win against Millwall’s relegation rivals Birmingham last time out – ex-Charlton loanee Stephy Mavididi scoring the 87th-minute winner.

Leicester are top of the Championship by one point and head to Plymouth on Saturday as the campaign enters the crunch point of the season.

Millwall are two points above the bottom four after their 1-0 defeat at Huddersfield on the weekend.

Marseca said after the win over Gary Rowett’s Birmingham: “For sure, we are going to make rotations because of three games in one week. It’s not easy. 

“Until the end, for us, but for all the clubs, every game is important because you face teams who are playing for some target.

“They (Birmingham) were [fighting] relegation – Tuesday will be the same. 

“When you play to survive, it’s always a boost, so we need to be ready for Tuesday, which will be a battle 100 per cent.

“There will be long balls, second balls and if we are not ready, we can struggle. Now it’s Tuesday’s game, no more than that. Tuesday for us is like the last game of the season. We need to go game by game.

“We’ve said many times already in the last few weeks that we cannot think there is a next one. This is the way we need to think, otherwise it can be difficult.”
