Millwall's Webster set for first outing in 10 months

NEIL HARRIS is set to give 22 players a run-out when Millwall play Dartford in their first pre-season friendly on Saturday.

Harris currently has 19 fit senior players available, meaning the likes of under-23 youngsters, including right-back Danny McNamara and winger Lewis White, could get opportunities at Princes Park.

Byron Webster is also set to make his first senior appearance since last September.

“Assuming he comes through training this week he’s available,” Harris said. “Of course there are some sharpness issues in training, but he has completed every minute of every session so far.

“He’s feeling good. He looks fit and strong. Pre-season is a perfect time for him to be integrated back into the group over the course of July and August.

“He will be able to build up fitness and minutes.

“There will be 22 players there. There will be most of the senior players, but some won’t be involved because they have knocks or niggles, minor ones over the first ten days of pre-season training.

“It’s not ideal but what it does do is give an opportunity to some of the younger players to get some minutes with the first-team group in front of a good crowd in a competitive friendly.

“The downside is you might miss some players for 45 minutes, but the flipside is the youngsters get a really good test.”

Murray Wallace is also set to make his debut after his summer move from Scunthorpe.
