Ben Thompson remains sidelined as Millwall take on Forest

Millwall will again be without midfielder Ben Thompson because of an ankle injury for the Sky Bet Championship match against Nottingham Forest.

Aiden O’Brien should be involved in the squad – the forward now fit again from his own ankle problem – but defender Byron Webster, who had been sidelined since October with knee ligament damage, remains a long-term absentee.

Forward Harry Smith is, meanwhile, taking time away from football to deal with depression and a gambling addiction.

The 22-year-old has been dealing with a knee injury since returning from a loan spell at Swindon in December.

Forest could have defender Jack Hobbs available again following a long-term back problem.

On-loan Everton midfielder Kieran Dowell sustained a minor unspecified injury while on duty with England Under-21s, but is expected to be available.

Midfielder David Vaughan, though, continues to be troubled by a persistent ankle problem.

Ashkan Dejagah is also working his way back to fitness following a knee injury, which required surgery.
