CARLOS Edwards is a doubt for this weekend’s trip to Swindon with the defender yet to return to training after picking up a leg injury in the 3-0 win over Blackpool last weekend.

Edwards returned to the side after missing 12 games with a hamstring injury he suffered against Barnsley on January 2, but went off in the 65th minute.

Lions boss Neil Harris said Edwards will have a fitness test before this Saturday’s clash at the County Ground. “Hopefully he’ll recover, we’re not sure. He’s certainly not training at the moment, we’ll have to monitor him up to the weekend and see if he can get on the training pitch on Friday.

“He’ll be assessed before the weekend. He’s got a dead leg, which you can normally get through but the severity of it is slightly worse than normal.”

If Edwards is unavailable Shane Ferguson could start at left-back with Aiden O'Brien, Ed Upson or Fred Onyedinma coming into the side.
