LEE Gregory is a doubt for Millwall’s final Sky Bet League One game this season, against Gillingham at Priestfield Stadium on Sunday.

The striker may not be risked this weekend as he recovers from surgery to a stomach muscle tear. Midfielder Shaun Williams is available after his three-game ban.

Shaun Cummings is the only first-team absentee as Millwall look to end the regular league campaign with four successive wins to give themselves a chance to finish third.

Gillingham are looking for a sixth-place finish, but for that to happen they need to win for the first time in eight games and hope both Barnsley and Scunthorpe don’t record victories.

Gills boss Justin Edinburgh has doubts over Aaron Morris and Andrew Crofts, while Bradley Garmston is out.

The final-day permutations:

Millwall win and Walsall lose to Port Vale – Millwall finish third and will play Barnsley or Scunthorpe in the play-off semi-final.

Millwall win and Walsall win or draw – Millwall finish fourth and will be away to Bradford in the first leg of the play-off semi-final.

Millwall draw or lose and Bradford win – Millwall finish fifth and will be home to Bradford in the first leg of the play-off semi-final.

Millwall draw or lose and Bradford draw or lose – Millwall finish fourth.
