Millwall boss Kenny Jackett is set to make some changes from the side that lost 2-1 to Sheffield Wednesday in the League Championship on Tuesday. However, the back four could remain unchanged.

James Henry has been a regular in his side’s team this season and is likely to come back into the starting XI, while Andy Keogh could partner with Rob Hulse up front, with Jermaine Easter dropping down to the bench.

As for Wigan, Roberto Martinez is unlikely to make many changes from the starting XI that drew 1-1 at QPR. On-loan Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Joel Robles could again keep his place in goal ahead of Ali Al Habsi.

Franco Di Santo could be recalled after coming off the bench - possibly in place of Shaun Maloney. Mike Politt (hip), Ivan Ramis and Albert Crusat (both knee), and Ben Watson (broken leg) all remain sidelined.
