Millwall boss Rowett without trio for Brentford clash

Millwall boss Gary Rowett is without a trio of players for Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship visit of Brentford.

Goalkeeper Frank Fielding (quad muscle) is missing as are Ben Thompson (ankle) and Ryan Leonard (ribs).

Murray Wallace returned to the bench for the Boxing Day draw at Cardiff following illness and will be pushing for a recall.

The 1-1 draw in south Wales leaves the Lions in the top-half of the table and Rowett will be keen to keep extend a run of just one defeat in their last nine games.

Brentford moved into the top-three with a 3-1 win over Swansea last time out.

Joel Valencia returned to the squad for the victory following a dislocated shoulder and played for 18 minutes.

Sergio Canos and Nikos Karelis (both knee) are missing while midfielder Christian Norgaard will be eyeing a starting berth.

Thomas Frank’s side have won three of their last four games and will be aiming to keep their promotion hopes on track with a victory at the New Den.
