Ahead of their FA Cup tie with Arsenal, Nottingham Forest head coach Steve Cooper would have deemed it to be a welcome distraction after two successive defeats in the league.
Forest did not necessarily perform to their best against the Gunners, but it was enough to nullify their Premier League opponents before Lewis Grabban‘s late winning goal.
It was an occasion which Forest required at this stage of the campaign, particularly with the likes of Steve Cook and Keinan Davis needing to make a positive impression after their respective moves from Bournemouth and Aston Villa.
Having kept changes down to a minimum in the FA Cup, Rowett is unlikely to make many alterations for this contest.
Goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski will return between the sticks, while George Evans is in contention for his first start since the middle of December.
Jed Wallace, who has been linked with a move to Forest, is likely to miss out as he continues his recovery from a quad issue.
Cooper will give consideration to selecting the same Forest XI from the FA Cup tie with Arsenal.
However, Grabban will feel like he has done enough to earn a recall after netting the decisive goal, an impact which could see Davis drop down to the substitutes’ bench.
Millwall possible starting lineup:
Bialkowski; Hutchinson, Pearce, Cooper; McNamara, Evans, Saville; Wallace; Ojo; Bradshaw, Afobe
Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Samba; Worrall, Cook, McKenna; Spence, Yates, Garner, Colback; Zinckernagel, Grabban, Johnson

Cooper will argue that further competition for places is required to raise their levels over the next five months, but they are back on track ahead of an important game in their season.
Although they sit six points adrift of the playoffs with a match in hand, another loss to a direct rival in the second tier could have long-standing ramifications
