If Millwall can overcome Tranmere in their FA Cup quarter-final replay next Tuesday, they face Sunderland in the semi-final on April 4.
That tie would pit Marshall against former Blues favourite Marcus Stewart, with the winners guaranteed a UEFA Cup spot, as Arsenal and Manchester United are already sure of playing in next season's Champions' League.
Although still an Ipswich player, Marshall is hopeful that his loan spell at the New Den will result in a permanent move.
