Millwall have Ryan Leonard available for selection for the visit of Hull.

Leonard was sent off after 30 minutes when Millwall were beaten 2-0 by Birmingham at the end of November.

He served his one-match ban last weekend when the Lions came from a goal down to draw 1-1 at Bristol City through Shaun Williams’ goal 12 minutes from time. With Williams injured, Leonard will take his place in Millwall’s midfield.

Hull are expected to be without defenders Reece Burke and Eric Lichaj after both sustained injuries in last week’s win at QPR. Burke (calf) and Lichaj (hamstring) had not returned to training by Thursday, while Stephen Kingsley remains doubtful after spending six weeks out with a hip problem.

Midfielder Evandro and forward Jon Toral are still unavailable due to respective calf injuries and striker Nouha Dicko is “touch and go” after being sidelined for a month with a hamstring problem. Angus MacDonald (deep vein thrombosis) and James Weir (knee) remain long-term absentees.

Prutton’s prediction

It’s turning into a really tough season for Millwall, despite the fact they nicked a decent away point at Bristol City on Sunday they still start the weekend in the relegation zone.

Winning at QPR would have been a huge confidence boost for Hull, and they will fancy their chances in London again on Saturday. This has got draw written all over it for me, though.

David Prutton predicts: 0-0 (9/1 with Sky Bet)
