Millwall will give a fitness test to forward Tom Elliott for Tuesday's visit of Steve Bruce's Owls, as he nears a comeback after a dislocated shoulder.

Manager Neil Harris will be without Ben Amos, Conor McLaughlin and Tom Bradshaw because of ongoing injuries.

Sheffield Wednesday have concerns about captain Tom Lees, whose shin injury kept him out of the draw with Reading.

January signings Dominic Iorfa and Achraf Lazaar could make their Wednesday debuts in the capital.
