With the 1st leg at the Galpharm ending 0-0, Milwall are expecting a sell-out crowd at the New Den.


Tom Clarke is expected to be out after being taken off with a knee injury in the first leg. Lee Peltier is expected to return to right-back with Robbie Williams set to start at left-back but Dean Heffernan is also available for selection.

Danny Drinkwater is expected to start despite limping off at the Galpharm.

Town have had plenty experience of the play-offs and the record goes as follow:

1992-Lost in 2nd leg semi-final against Peterborough United
1995-Won- Brentford on penalties after 1-1 scoreline at both 1st and 2nd leg
2002-Lost to Brentford in 2nd leg semi-finals
2004-Won- Beat Lincoln over 2 legs and beat Mansfield in the final on penalties
2006-Lost to Barnsley in 2nd leg semi-final
2010-Won? can it be Town's year having a won-lose straight record, lost the last time in the play-offs and exactly 15 years ago we won promotion from the same division via the play-offs?

Danny Schofield and Shaun Batt could return from injury and be included in the Millwall starting 18.

Chris Hackett is out with a groin strain plus the Lions' player of the year Alan Dunne is out with a foot injury.

Millwall are aiming to return to Wembley for the second successive year. The home side are the favourites and have only lost once at home all season.
