MILLWALL boss Neil Harris hasn’t completely ruled Steve Morison and Jed Wallace out of the League One clash against Peterborough on Tuesday night.
Morison has a groin problem and Wallace is recovering from a calf strain.
“I’m giving them every opportunity, but Saturday is more realistic for both of them,” Harris said. “We’re always battling time with midweek games to get people back out there.
“It’s a long shot for either of them.
“A lot of fixtures takes its toll this time of year. I think if you look at other squads teams are picking up minor injuries.
“They are key players for us obviously. I think for Moro it’s been the amount of games he’s played and with Jed it’s probably been stop-start and a case of lack of games.
“It’s just the nature of it, we’ve got a lot of games in a short space of time and you are going got pick niggles up as you go along.
Peterborough’s Jack Baldwin is suspended, but Chris Forrester and Anthony Grant should return from their bans to anchor their midfield.
Posh boss Grant McCann has been impressed with Millwall recently, but said his players won’t be overawed playing at The Den.
“A run in the FA Cup can galvanise a team, but it doesn’t always,” McCann told Peterborough Telegraph. “Millwall haven’t won either of their last two games.
“But we are under no illusions about the task. Millwall are a top League One team with an outstanding young manager and they’re enjoying another very good season.
“They know League One inside-out and their defensive record is impressive. They also have goal threats so we will have to be at the top of our game to get the result we want.
“The atmosphere can be intimidating at the New Den, but I always enjoyed playing there. You have to ignore the crowd and concentrate on your game and we have had some good results there in my time at the club. There’s no way we will be intimidated by, or scared of, the game.”
Millwall are unbeaten in 15 games and haven’t conceded in eight, but Peterborough will be confident of upsetting the side two points above them in the league having scored five goals in three of the last five fixtures between the clubs.
