MILLWALL will be without the services of Liam Trotter at Ewood Park on Saturday but are boosted by the return of Jimmy Abdou.

Trotter strained his adductor muscle in the final 20 minutes of the Lions’ 1-0 win over Leeds United and has not trained this week.

The 24-year-old is likely to be out for the next ten days and is a major doubt to feature against Wolves on Tuesday.

Abdou was absent last weekend after returning to France for the birth of his second child but will line-up alongside Josh Wright in the centre of midfield.

Manager Kenny Jackett continues to be without Darius Henderson (hamstring), Paul Robinson (hip) and John Marquis (groin).

Blackburn Rovers welcome new signing Joshua King into their squad after the striker completed a six-week loan move from Manchester United on Thursday.

Manager Henning Berg is also boosted by the return of a trio of players who had previously been struggling with slight niggles.

Defenders Gael Givet (knee), Jason Lowe (hamstring) and Colin Kazim-Richards (muscle) are all expected to be fit.

The only notable absentees for Rovers are David Dunn (calf), Leon Best (knee) and Fabio Nunes (hamstring).
