Watford will be looking to add further momentum to their unlikely play-off push when they travel to Millwall this weekend.

The Lions find themselves embroiled in a battle to beat the drop into League One, but consecutive wins over Nottingham Forest and Wigan Athletic have given Ian Holloway's side renewed hope at this late stage.

With five games left to play Millwall trail South London rivals Charlton Athletic, who are 21st, by two points.

The Addicks also have two games in hand on Millwall, something which could prove key in the relegation battle.

Appointed on January 6 as Steve Lomas' successor, Holloway has struggled to galvanise the South Bermondsey outfit, winning just four of his 17 Championship matches as boss; giving him a win percentage of just 23.5% - lower than previous incumbent Lomas with 25%.

Millwall are holders of the division's worst defensive record, conceding 70 goals in 41 games, four more than Barnsley and Yeovil, both of whom are below the Lions.

Goalscoring has been a problem too, with Leeds United loanee Steve Morison the club's top league scorer with seven from 24 league starts.

The 30-year-old re-joined the South Londoners on a season-long loan deal from Leeds United after a frustrating six months at Elland Road.

Sold to Norwich City for £2.8m in 2011, Morison scored nine times in 22 league starts during his first season with the Canaries, but made just four top-flight starts in his second season at Carrow Road following the appointment of Chris Hughton.

Offloaded to Leeds in January 2013 in a swap deal for Whites' forward Luciano Becchio, Morison scored three times in 13 games before returning to the Den, the club where he made his name in the Football League.

Initially signed by the Lions from Stevenage Borough for £130,000 in 2009, Morison scored 35 league goals in 82 starts during his first spell at the club.

A full Welsh international, Enfield-born Morison twice won the Football League Trophy during his time with Stevenage. The former England C international also won promotion back to the Championship with the Lions in 2010.

Thanks largely to the change in regime halfway through the campaign, Millwall have used 40 players in the Championship this term, with Holloway signing six since taking over at the beginning of January.

The Lions could be without former Watford defender and club captain Danny Shittu, who has been sidelined through March with a groin problem.

Australian defender Shane Lowry (foot) and DJ Campbell (hamstring) are also doubts and have both missed the last two.
