Boost for Millwall with Murray Wallace news

MURRAY Wallace does not need surgery on his damaged ankle and knee, Lions boss Neil Harris has confirmed.

Wallace had a scan on Monday on the injuries he suffered against Hull last week, and Harris has said the defender should be involved in pre-season.

James Meredith or Shane Ferguson are the options to start at left-back against Bolton on Saturday.

"No operation needed," Harris said. "There is damage to the ankle and knee, so nothing has changed, it doesn't look like he'll play again this season.

"He looks like he should be fully recovered and fit and healthy for the start of pre-season.

"It's a big blow to us now because his form has been excellent, his characteristics have been key to us as well.

"He's going to be a loss, but one person's loss is another person's gain. There are opportunities for others.

"The good news for us is that Murray hasn't got severe damage and will be back with the group during the summer."
