GREGG WYLDE could be recalled early from a loan spell at Northampton as Millwall assess whether he needs groin surgery.
Wylde has started just six league games since moving to Northampton in January and hasn’t featured at all since their 0-0 draw with Oxford on March 25.
Scottish winger Wylde started only one league game for Millwall after his summer move from Plymouth, who secured promotion to League One on Monday.
Lions boss Neil Harris spoke to his Cobblers counterpart Justin Edinburgh after Millwall’s 3-0 win over Northampton last Friday. Wylde wasn’t allowed to play in that game anyway due to the terms of the loan arrangement between the clubs, but he also missed Northampton’s 1-1 draw at home to Shrewsbury on Monday.
Harris will speak further with Edinburgh before deciding whether to recall Wylde, whose Lions future is in doubt after his lack of an impact this season.
Millwall may decide to act now so Wylde is fit to move on in the summer.
Harris said: “Wyldie is injured, he’s struggling with a groin problem. He might have to have minor surgery.
“He hasn’t been fit enough to be involved recently.
“I’ll be speaking to Justin and if he has no chance of being involved in the next week or two then we may have to look at a groin operation now so he has time to recover and be ready for pre-season.”
