Millwall's Hutchinson a doubt for Bolton clash

MILLWALL won't rush Shaun Hutchinson’s return from his latest injury.

Hutchinson is likely to miss this weekend’s League One clash with Bolton Wanderers after pulling up with a hamstring problem late on in the Checkatrade Trophy win at Luton last week.

Hutchinson has yet to start a league game for the Lions, but looked impressive against Southend in the FA Cup before his setback at Kenilworth Road.

Millwall manager Neil Harris also gave an update on Steve Morison’s knee injury that is expected to keep him out until a potential return in the League One game at home to Shrewsbury on December 10.

“It might be a course of injections, we’ll have to see how his recovery comes along,” Harris said. “He’s spending a period of time in a brace to stabilise the area, and limited time out of it to do some controlled walking.

“It’s always difficult because people recover differently from injuries and you don’t get a true sense of the recovery until it’s two to three weeks in.

“We’re working on the basis it’s a five-week period from the day of the injury.

“We don’t know yet with Hutch, we’ll have to see how his recovery goes. Obviously we have to be careful with him, he’s aggravated an old injury because of scar tissue in the hamstring.

“We certainly can’t rush him but we also want him back on the training pitch as soon as possible.”
