Kenny Jackett will be in charge of Millwall for the first time tomorrow, when the Lions face Altrincham in the first round of the FA Cup.
Jackett has had two days to prepare his new side for the trip to Greater Manchester; ironically where he lived while coaching at Man City.
But the ex-Swansea man has inherited a length injury list which now includes Ben May and Neil Harris who picked up knocks in midweek.
Altrincham have injury problems of their own and star striker Colin Little might recover in time to play infront of a sell-out crowd at Moss Lane.
*BBC 5 Live's football coverage will be broadcast live from Moss Lane tomorrow.
**You can watch all the action and reaction on BBC1's Match of the Day, which follows the 10 o'clock news tomorrow night.
Millwall manager Kenny Jackett: 'It's an interesting one - and I certainly didn't think I'd be going back to Altrincham so soon!
Football has a funny habit of throwing these things up. We know that it will be a very difficult cup tie.
Despite the considerable number of injuries we will have to make sure that the players who are selected have their attitude exactly spot on to ensure that we overcome this challenge.'
Altrincham will be without midfielder Val Owen who has a foot injury.
Gareth Whalley is also sidelined with a calf injury but Colin Little faces a late fitness test.
The ex-Crewe striker could cause problems should he play.
Richard Shaw, Andy Frampton, Danny Senda are all out, while Hoskins remains a doubt.
Danny Spiller, Chris Hackett, Ryan Smith, David Brammer and Tom Brighton are all out, while O'Hara is unavailable.
Loanee Marcus Bignot goes straight into the squad.
Dunney has been Millwall's form player of late, so don't be surprised if he gets on the scoresheet again.
The last time Millwall were featured on Match of the Day was back in 2005, when Marvin Williams earned the Lions a draw against Premiership side Everton
Altrincham 1-3 Millwall
