Under former Millwall boss Kenny Jackett, they will bring a strong side to the Globe Arena.

Richard Stearman, Dave Edwards and George Elokobi all limped off against Preston but they will be pose a stern test of the Shrimps back line with striking talent such as Bakary Sako and Leigh Griffiths.

Sako was one of the only bright lights of a disastrous season in the Championship while Griffiths has starred on loan at Hibernian.
