SHANE Ferguson is likely to miss Millwall's trip to Scunthorpe United this Saturday with a hamstring injury.
The on-loan Newcastle player came off in the 89th minute against Barnsley, meaning boss Neil Harris had to bring on winger Lee Martin at left-back.
With Ferguson out, and Joe Martin still at least a week away from returning, it leave Harris with a tough decision to make this weekend.
Mark Beevers started the first two league games of the season but was taken off at half-time in the 4-0 defeat to Coventry last Saturday and wasn’t included in the squad against Barnsley on Tuesday night.
Beevers has also been linked with a move away from the club.
Harris could switch captain Tony Craig to left-back with Byron Webster coming in to partner Sid Nelson.
Youngsters Kyron Farrell and Noah Chesmain played there in pre-season but it would be a surprise were Harris to opt for inexperience for what is already shaping up to be a crunch fixture.
Both sides have made uncertain starts to the season and will be desperate for the points this weekend.
Harris told the club’s official website he is disappointed to lose his left-back: “Young Shane Ferguson is really struggling with a hamstring injury, which is unfortunate because he has come in and done well for us. That will be a forced change.
“I’m looking for a consistent line-up, if possible, with the odd tweak now and again to freshen things up.
“There is a lot for me to consider before the game on Saturday.”
