High-flying Millwall meet play-off-chasing Tranmere in League One on Saturday, with both sides hoping to continue their pursuit of promotion.
Striker Izale McLeod goes straight into the Millwall squad after joining the Lions from Charlton on loan until the end of the season.
Boss Kenny Jackett also has options in defence with centre-halves Paul Robinson and Tony Craig both returning from suspension.
Zak Whitbread scored upon his return to the back four in the FA Cup win over Crewe in midweek following a pelvic injury and will hope to keep his place.
Midfielder Nadjim Abdou is close to returning from a hamstring injury but may not be risked and winger Chris Hackett is still out with groin trouble.
Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore will again be without strike duo Chris Greenacre and Craig Curran for the trip South East London.
Curran is about to resume full-time training with Rovers after being sidelined for the best part of four months with a back problem. The 19-year-old may be pushing for a first-team recall by the end of the month.
Greenacre has suffered ligament damage to his foot and is set to be sidelined for between six to eight weeks.
Meanwhile, Rovers midfielder Adnan Ahmed has joined League Two outfit Port Vale on trial.
The Pakistan international, 24, joined the club from Huddersfield back in 2007 but his two-year deal expires this summer, when it is believed he will be available on a free transfer.
