Millwall close to full strength against depleted Gills

LEE Gregory and Jordan Archer are unlikely to return for Millwall’s clash at Gillingham this weekend.

Both players have missed the last two games with a stomach problem and quad injury, respectively.

Lions boss Neil Harris was hoping they would be able to train ahead of the trip to Priestfield, but is unlikely to risk them ahead of the Easter schedule with two fixtures in four days against Northampton and Fleetwood.



Harris said: “Neither trained {Tuesday] but we’re hoping we might get them on the training pitch before the weekend.

“It would be great to add two more bodies to the squad. They’re both progressing well.

“They won’t be on the training pitch [Wednesday] but [Friday] we might give them an opportunity.



“If not they’ll have another period to recover before the Easter fixtures.”

Harris has no other injury concerns.

Meanwhile, Gillingham are without their influential midfielder Bradley Dack, who has scored two goals in his last three games against Millwall. Dack was sent off in the 3-2 defeat MK Dons last Saturday.

Scott Wagstaff is out with an ankle problem and Bradley Garmston will miss the rest of the season.

Chris Herd is back in training but won’t be fit enough for this fixture as his side aim to climb clear of the relegation zone. The Gills are just two points ahead of Shrewsbury who are 21st.

Gillingham boss Adrian Pennock is calling on players and fans to match Saturday’s opponents on and off the pitch.

He told the Gills’ website: “Everyone at this football club wants to stay in this division, and it starts tomorrow.

“It will be a fantastic atmosphere and we want to give the fans something to cheer about. They fully deserve it, and so do the players.

“We know what [Millwall] will be like. They will bring a lot of fans and be vocal, but we have to match them, and match them on the pitch as well.”

Millwall's 2-1 win at Priestfield on the last day of last season (above) clinched fourth place in the table.

    No Bradley Dack for them and us back to full strength equals 3 points for the Lions.
    Still think it will go to the last game of the season to see who makes the play-offs.

    I hope that we have had our blip. It also depends on what Bradford, Scunthorpe and Southend do for the rest of the season.

      @denslions: I reckon Scunthorpe will miss out and we'll finish 5th or 6th. That would mean away on the 2nd leg but I'd fancy our chances against the others over two games.

    great publish, very informative. I'm wondering why the opposite experts of this sector don't notice this. You should continue your writing. I'm sure, you have a huge readers' base already!

    When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!
