Caretaker manager Neil Harris has said fans can expect to see some ‘heart and desire’ at The Den tonight when we host Brighton.

Having lost his first game in charge two nil to Bolton Wanderers back on Saturday, Harris had already explained that he had a lot of positives he wanted to take out of the defeat and speaking to the official site ahead of tonight’s game he said he was looking for the team to build on those positives and put in the effort and the energy that could help us to all three points again.

‘The fans can turn up on Tuesday night in their numbers expecting to see a Millwall performance. They can expect to see heart and desire. I can’t promise a result but we will certainly be doing everything to get a positive one. We’re desperate to get that win and we’re desperate for them to see goals, balls in the box and excitement. The fans have stuck with the players and that is a huge positive. I’ll ask the supporters to keep doing what they are and play their part. They will see effort, desire and hunger in the team to play for them. They will identify with a Millwall team on Tuesday night.’

As for team news tonight, Alan Dunne will serve the first of his two match automatic suspension having picked up his tenth yellow card of the season against Bolton at the weekend and either Mark Beevers or youngster Sid Nelson will likely get the call.

Nicky Bailey, Lee Martin and Carlos Edwards are all ruled out ahead of time, but Paris Cowan-Hall would have been assessed at some point this morning to judge his potential involvement having taken a knock on his ankle at the weekend.

With Brighton holding a one game advantage out of our results, tonight marks the 100th meeting between the two sides and it would be nice to level up that record to 38 wins a piece.
