The Lions have failed to win either of their pasty two, losing against Blackburn and drawing with Middlesbrough. “I don’t feel we are in a position where we have turned the season around,” he said. “We had a relatively good first few weeks then we had a spell where every error we made, the ball went in the goal. I have never really had that before when I have been in charge. This year has been the first time and we had a dip in individual players not being at their best. Certainly had more injuries than we have ever had. It has culminated in us not winning as many games as we should have. 4.36pm GMT Millwall manager Neil Harris must plan without injured strikers Tom Bradshaw and Tom Elliott, goalkeeper Ben Amos and right-back Conor McLaughlin. New signing Ben Marshall, in on loan from Norwich City, is cup-tied.Everton manager Silva is comparatively untroubled by injury concerns and is only missing Phil Jagielka, who has played just twice so far this season and is out with a muscle injury. Following his side’s defeat at the hands of Southampton last weekend, Silva may well ring the changes. 3.29pm GMT The Den is the setting for one of the fourth round’s more intriguing ties, with Championship strugglers Millwall entertaining Premier League under-achievers Everton in the first meeting between the sides in any competition since they met in the third round of the FA Cup in 2005-06, which was won by today’s visitors.Millwall saw off Hull City to earn their berth in this round, while Everton beat League Two leaders Lincoln City by the odd goal of three.
