                                                    Trio worry for Forest Marcus Tudgay, Paul Anderson and George Elokobi are concerns for Nottingham Forest ahead of Millwall's visit.

                                                    However, defender Danny Higginbotham could be available again after missing the last two matches with a hamstring problem.

                                                    Striker Tudgay (groin) and midfielder Anderson (thigh) sustained injuries during the warm-up ahead of the home game against Doncaster on Tuesday night. Defender Elokobi was forced off midway through the second half against Rovers with back and hamstring trouble.

                                                    All three players will continue to be assessed and a late decision will be made on their fitness.

                                                    Jonathan Greening missed out in midweek because of an ongoing ankle injury. The midfielder has been playing through the pain barrier in recent weeks and is currently unable to play back-to-back matches but he could be patched up in time for Saturday.

                                                    Liam Trotter and Darius Henderson hope to return to the Millwall squad.

                                                    Midfielder Trotter has missed the last three matches with a thigh injury while striker Henderson sat out the clashes with Reading and Peterborough with a hamstring problem.

                                                    The duo should be in contention to face Forest but could struggle to get into the team after the impressive 3-0 win at Posh on Tuesday night.

                                                    Defender Shane Lowry could miss out again with an ankle problem and midfielder Jimmy Abdou is also a doubt after sitting out in midweek with a knock.

                                                    Higginbotham keeps Forest firing Danny Higginbotham marked his return to the Nottingham Forest team with his first goal in almost a year to help the Reds edge five points clear of the npower Championship relegation zone with a 3-1 victory over Millwall.

                                                    Higginbotham, who had missed the previous two matches because of a hamstring injury, scored Forest's second goal seven minutes before half-time after Garath McCleary had given Steve Cotterill's side a 25th-minute lead.

                                                    It was the on-loan defender's first goal since netting in a 4-0 victory for parent club Stoke against Newcastle at the Britannia Stadium on March 19 last year.

                                                    James Henry struck the woodwork for Millwall either side of the two Forest goals before substitute Darius Henderson pulled one back for the Lions in the 64th minute.

                                                    However, Andy Reid ended any hopes of a comeback with a fantastic long-range strike 10 minutes from time.

                                                    Millwall began brightly, perhaps buoyed by their comprehensive 3-0 win at Peterborough in midweek. Andy Keogh and Henry threatened inside the opening 15 minutes before the latter struck the woodwork.

                                                    Henry's shot was beyond Lee Camp's reach but rattled a post and then rolled to safety after hitting the Forest goalkeeper on the back.

                                                    It was against the run of play when the hosts went straight up the other end and scored.

                                                    Reid did brilliantly down the left-hand side, providing a superb cross for McCleary to head home from six yards out.

                                                    Higginbotham made it 2-0 after 38 minutes with a left-foot volley from the edge of the area after Millwall failed to clear the ball properly.

                                                    Remarkably, Henry saw another effort hit the woodwork and then rebound to safety off the body of Camp. This time the midfielder struck the crossbar with a dipping 20-yard volley.

                                                    Millwall were denied by the frame of the goal for a third time in the 64th minute when Josh Wright's shot hit a Forest defender and looped over Camp and hit the bar, but this time Henderson was on hand to head home the rebound.

                                                    The burly striker had only been on the field four minutes after replacing Harry Kane on the hour mark.

                                                    Kenny Jackett's team pushed for an equaliser but Reid ended their hopes of returning to London with a point.
