Millwall host Southampton in the fourth round of the FA Cup this Saturday in what looks likely to be a lively encounter.

Millwall have recovered from the shock of their heavy defeat to Birmingham with two good wins whilst Southampton have blown hot and cold without showing their open quality attacking style shown in early season.

Vital Quotes:

Millwell Team News:

Millwall are without centre back Tamika Mkentre and Alan Dunne who serves the final game of his three match suspension.

Paul Robinson and Jordan Stewart are likely absentees having sustained recent injuries, although Therry Racon is progressing well on a return.

Player to watch: Darius Henderson

The striker has hit a rich vein of form and will be looking to add to his two recent hat-tricks.

Southampton Team News:

Rickie Lambert could return after his 3 game ban and there could be a place for new signing Tadanari Lee.

Saints could see the likes of Jose Fonte return and possibly Richard Chaplow with a few other players also nearing a return to fitness.

Lallana and Hooiveld may need a bit longer to fully recover.

Player to watch: Rickie Lambert

After missing three games Rickie should be more than ready to show his power and striking capability.

Match Facts & Stats
