Millwall have problems in defence for the visit of Bolton.
Skipper Paul Robinson is missing due to an ongoing pelvic problem, Karleigh Osborne has been ruled out with a calf injury and Shane Lowry is suspended after collecting five yellow cards.
Danny Shittu and youngster Jake Goodman are therefore Millwall's only recognised centre-backs and although midfielder Tamika Mkandawire used to play there for Leyton Orient and has recovered from knee surgery, he has yet to make an appearance this season.
Elsewhere, winger Liam Feeney is still sidelined with an ankle injury and striker John Marquis will be out until after Christmas due to a groin problem.
Andy Keogh could return in attack after dropping to the bench at Bristol City in midweek.
David Ngog is an injury doubt ahead of Bolton's trip.
Ngog, who only recently returned to first-team action following a back problem that dogged his pre-season preparations, missed out against Leeds in midweek due to a hamstring complaint. The French striker will be assessed ahead of the match and will join Marcus Alonso on the sidelines if deemed unfit.
Alonso did not feature in Tuesday night's 2-2 draw and, although the weekend comes too soon for him, boss Owen Coyle is expecting the Spanish defender to return to training from his leg injury at the start of next week.
On-loan Arsenal forward Benik Afobe will hope to keep his place in attack after making a first Wanderers start against Neil Warnock's side, only four days on from visiting hospital with a groin problem.
``It wasn't a major thing,'' the 19-year-old told the Manchester Evening News. ``I had a problem with my groin and we thought it was best to get to hospital to make sure it wasn't anything serious.
``Unfortunately, I ended up missing the game against Crystal Palace (last Saturday) but obviously my health was more important. It feels fine now, so hopefully it won't happen again.``
