HUDDERSFIELD Town head out on the road again, this time to The Den, looking to get back to winning ways after Tuesday night's disappointing loss to Peterborough.
They face a Millwall side that threw away a 3-0 lead against Birmingham at home on Tuesday night, the match ended 3-3.
It is thought both Millwall manager Kenny Jackett and Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson will be tempted to make changes for the game following their respective disappointing results.
Grayson has had Huddersfield's tactics spot on away from home this season, and Town fans will hope for a return to an impressive high tempo display.
Paul Dixon & Adam Hammill are two players that could come into the starting eleven after impressing as substitutes at Peterborough.
Grayson is monitoring several players who are carrying knocks but was not revealing any names
"This is what the Championship is all about. We have to be able to play on a Tuesday night in front of 6,000 fans and on a Saturday in front of bigger, more boisterous crowds. We will go to Millwall with a game-plan to try and keep their team quiet.
"We went to Hillsborough the other week and dealt with a really difficult atmosphere and we won at Blackpool where the crowd is on top of you. The goalposts don`t change and the size of the pitch doesn`t really alter, so you have to cope with the different environments. I have no problems with our players down there.
"They`ve got good players and that`s really all we have to focus on. They had a result the other night when they were 3-0 up and it will hugely disappoint them that they drew the game 3-3, so we have to concentrate on their strengths and weaknesses and try to get a result there."
"Adam is fit and available for selection, so he comes into consideration like a lot of other players do. We won`t make drastic changes for the sake of it because of a defeat - I`ve never been one for doing that - but we might change it around a little.
"We have one or two players who have knocks at this moment in time as well and missed training on Thursday, so that will determine the team selection that we reveal at 2pm on Saturday. We`ll travel down on Friday morning and train in London at dinnertime, so hopefully all those that have been carrying little niggles will make it through and be available for selection.
"I`m sure if I asked the likes of Joel Lynch if he is fit to play he would say yes! I have some decisions to make on the selection of the team, but it`s nice to have all these players available to me if I need to change the system or personnel.
"The only player definitely unavailable is Oscar Gobern, who is out for three months."
Loanee Chris Wood is expected to lead the attack after scoring twice vs Lee Clark's Birmingham.
Andy Keogh is hoping to be passed fit to partner Wood upfront
James Henry is a doubt with a hamstring injury but will face a late fitness test.
Karleigh Osborne is struggling with a back injury.
Jack Smith (groin) also doubtful
Paul Robinson (groin) is already ruled out
West Brom loanee, Wood, scored twice vs Birmingham in midweek and will be the dangerman to Town this afternoon
Adam Hammill, Paul Dixon & Joel Lynch all pushing for recalls.
Oscar Gobern ruled out for 2-3 months after ankle surgery.
Many expect him to start and he has a point to prove, tricky winger with an eye for goal, could prove the extra spark we missed in the early stages at Peterborough
• Millwall and Huddersfield have each won 14 of their 32 league meetings
