League One preview: Millwall vs. Bristol Rovers

NEIL Harris could be without Steve Morison for this Saturday’s League One clash with Bristol Rovers.

The 33-year-old striker is struggling with the knee injury he that saw him stretchered off against Southend last Friday.

Midfielder Ben Thompson will be available. He required stitches in his ear after clashing with Shrimpers defender Ryan Inniss.

Shaun Hutchinson was taken off at the end of Millwall’s 3-1 win at Luton on Tuesday, but that was a precaution with the defender playing twice in four days after his injury lay-off.

Shane Ferguson and Jimmy Abdou are away on international duty.

Bristol Rovers goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall is facing a further four months out with a knee injury.

The meeting is the first between the clubs since December 2009, when Morison scored in a 2-0 win for Kenny Jackett’s side.
