STEVE Morison could make his return from a hernia injury against Blackpool on Tuesday, Millwall boss Steve Lomas has revealed.
Morison has resumed full training after undergoing surgery three weeks ago and had asked to be involved in the 5-1 defeat to Derby County at the weekend.
Lomas did not want to risk the striker after such a short rehabilitation, but admits the Leeds United loanee may now make his comeback ahead of schedule against the Tangerines.
"Stevie is nearly back," Lomas said. "I would have liked him to have done a little bit more training, but we might have to throw him in early."
Another frontman pushing for a start against the Championship leaders is Martyn Waghorn, who scored on his debut against the Rams after coming on as a second-half substitute.
Lomas defended his decision to use Waghorn from the bench but hinted that the Leicester City loanee could be in his XI on Tuesday after his impressive cameo.
He said: "Hindsight is a great thing. Andy Keogh has scored three goals this year and is our leading scorer, Scott McDonald was excellent against Brighton and Martyn had only come through the door on Thursday.
"But I thought he did well when he came on under difficult circumstances."
