On the back of successive defeats to two high-profile clubs, Michael O’Neill will not be panicking about the trajectory of his Stoke squad.
However, regardless of the Potters remaining a win away from fourth spot, they have now prevailed in just three of their last nine league games.
Goals are the biggest issue, a record not helped by O’Neill persevering with a system which places far more onus on defence than attack.
While those tactics were good enough to overcome West Bromwich Albion before the international break, there is a feeling that O’Neill needs to be more versatile to get the best out of a talented crop of players.
Tyrese Campbell was the big plus in midweek after making his first outing since a serious knee injury, but the forward will not be rushed into the spotlight after 10 months on the sidelined.
Rowett is likely to recall either Benik Afobe or Matt Smith in place of goalless forward Tom Bradshaw.
Maikel Kieftenbeld should come into the Millwall XI as a replacement for George Saville, who is suspended after collecting his fifth yellow card of the season.
With Nick Powell going off injured in midweek, O’Neill may take the opportunity to hand another chance to Sam Surridge.
Mario Vrancic is also an option in central midfield with Sam Clucas or Jordan Thompson expected to drop down to the substitutes’ bench.
