Webster out of Iron clash and doubt for Charlton

BYRON Webster has been ruled out of Millwall’s League One clash with Scunthorpe this weekend.

Webster picked up a hamstring problem in the 5-2 win over Braintree in the FA Cup and missed the defeat to Shrewsbury last Saturday.

The Lions centre-back is also a doubt for the south London derby against Charlton next Wednesday.

“Byron won’t train this week and won’t be fit,” Millwall boss Neil Harris said. “He tweaked his hamstring slightly right at the end of the Braintree game.

“He didn’t even know about it at the time and completed the game but felt the pain on Monday and Tuesday. It wasn’t enough to warrant a scan straightaway but he came in Thursday morning and he still couldn’t train.

“He could be back for Charlton but if not we’re looking at Boxing Day against Swindon.”
