MILLWALL'S injured trio Aiden O’Brien, Joe Martin and Jimmy Abdou should all be back in contention in the next two weeks to boost Neil Harris’ options.
Harris is “happy” with his squad but hasn’t ruled out adding more signings before the transfer window shuts on August 31.
Martin’s injury has seen Mark Beevers pressed into action at left-back while Ed Upson and Shaun Williams have been the regular midfield partnership through pre-season and again against Shrewsbury and Barnet.
The Lions were linked with Shrewsbury centre-back Jermaine Grandison last week before he committed his future to Micky Mellon’s side the day before the start of the season.
O’Brien’s injury has left Harris short up front. John Marquis started against Barnet on Tuesday night before Lee Gregory came off the bench to add extra combativeness to the attack.
Harris was disappointed with the manner of the defeat to Martin Allen’s League Two side but wasn’t making any snap statements about the need to urgently bring in new players.
“I’m really happy with my squad,” he said. “But if we feel the need to strengthen an area then we will.
“We have some players out injured at the moment but they are short-term injuries.
“Aiden, Joe and Jimmy will all be back in the group in the next seven to fourteen days and we look forward to having them back.
“It’ll give me some more good options. Once they’re back in we’ll have a much stronger squad.
“We will learn from our mistakes the other night. We concede goals as a team and we score goals as a team and if I talk to an individual it’s to help him improve.”
