The international break might not be finished just yet but we’re starting to think more and more about our clash with Millwall this weekend in the Championship.
The Lions have had a hold on us in recent years with them proving to be a bogey-team but this season we look as well equipped as we have in years to overrun them and battle it out with them.
Certainly, it should be a good game but it looks as though we’ll be without Gaetano Berardi for the contest.
Indeed, Phil Hay has revealed that the Swiss defender is a doubt for the clash:
Berardi (knee) a doubt for the weekend too but Hernandez is back in training and Forshaw is pushing to be in contention. #lufc

For sure, this is a blow when you consider the start he has made under Bielsa but hopefully, Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper can prove themselves this weekend.
I have been impressed with Berardi but Cooper and Jansson should be able to show that they are the top two defenders at the club.
