Millwall FA Cup hero Murray Wallace out of quarter-final clash against Brighton

MILLWALL will be without the suspended Murray Wallace for the quarter-final of the FA Cup against Premier League Brighton & Hove Albion.  

Wallace, who headed in the only goal against AFC Wimbledon in the fifth round on Saturday, went on to pick up a yellow card, his second in the competition this season.

Left-back Wallace was also booked in the fourth round against Everton before scoring an injury-time winner. He will serve a one-game ban.

That means Lions boss Neil Harris could face a defensive problem against the Seagulls, particularly if James Meredith hasn't recovered from a calf problem. Conor McLaughlin is also currently side-lined.

Shane Ferguson could fill in at left-back, with Aiden O'Brien and Jiri Skalak options on the left of midfield.
