Wise puts himself back in Millwall side

Also recalled is striker Neil Harris, who partners Danny Dichio up front, with Peter Sweeney dropping to the bench. Unlucky midfielder Marvin Elliott fails to make the squad despite starting at Bramall Lane.

John Achterberg shrugs off the knee injury which sidelined him for Tranmere’s defeat by Swindon in midweek to take his place in goal.

Ryan Taylor also returns after resting a hamstring injury, but Graham Allen fails to recover from a thigh injury in time.

With Iffy Onuora cup-tied, Iain Hume joins Eugene Dadi in attack.

Millwall: Marshall, Muscat, Lawrence, Ward, Ryan, Ifill, Cahill, Livermore, Wise, Harris, Dichio. Subs: Gueret, Roberts, Braniff, McCammon, Sweeney.

Tranmere: Achterberg, Taylor, Goodison, Roberts, Connelly, Jones, Mellon, Harrison, Beresford, Hume, Dadi. Subs: Howarth, Linwood, Navarro, Nicholson, Loran.

Referee: N Barry (N Lincolnshire)
