NEIL Harris could be without three of his four first-choice defenders when Millwall take on Bury at The Den this weekend.

Left-back Joe Martin picked up his fifth booking of the season in the 2-1 defeat to Fleetwood for a foul on Tarique Fosu-Henry and will miss this Saturday’s clash against the Shakers.

Carlos Edwards missed Tuesday night's game with a tight hamstring and Tony Craig is a long-term absentee.

Harris has the option of dropping Shane Ferguson back to left-back and starting Ed Upson, who came on for the Northern Ireland international at Highbury Stadium, in midfield.

Striker Steve Morison was also booked and is one more yellow card away from a one-game ban.

Meanwhile Paris Cowan-Hall started on the right wing for Bristol Rovers last night against Stevenage.

The Gas went one down in the fourth minute before Cowan-Hall set up Matt Taylor for the equaliser. He was substituted in the 66th minute as Darrell Clarke’s side lost 2-1.

John Marquis played the full 90 minutes for Leyton Orient as they held League Two leaders Plymouth to a 1-1 draw at Home Park.
