Millwall winger to miss first league game in 2018

JED Wallace will be absent from Millwall’s starting XI for the first time in 31 Championship games after picking up his fifth booking of the season.

Wallace received a yellow card in the 3-2 defeat to Sheffield United on Saturday which rules him out of Wednesday’s league trip to Nottingham Forest.

The last time Wallace wasn’t in the Lion’s starting line-up in a league game was against Norwich last New Year’s Day.

Millwall boss Neil Harris said: “Five bookings, and he has probably only made five tackles. He needs to make better decisions.”

Jiri Skakak and Shane Ferguson are the favourites to replace Wallace at The City Ground.
