Millwall will play it safe with Lee Gregory

NEIL Harris said he won’t rush Lee Gregory back from injury.

The Millwall striker hasn’t played since going off with a hip problem in the 2-1 win over Sheffield United on August 20.

Harris is hopeful Gregory will be able to train on Thursday and Friday before the meeting with Coventry this weekend, but he will only be considered if he is fully fit.

“Lee’s been working with the physio and sports scientist to get himself up to speed,” Harris said.

“The plan would be to train Thursday but with the nature of the injury there’s certainly no risk going to be taken to rush him back to fitness. It’s one of those niggly injuries that if it’s not 100 per cent healed it could go again.

“He has to be 100 per cent right and if there is any risk whatsoever Lee won’t be involved at the weekend.”
