Millwall could confirm successor to Neil Harris before Cardiff City clash

MILLWALL could confirm a new permanent manager before the visit of Cardiff City to The Den on Tuesday evening.

Former Birmingham, Derby and Stoke City boss Gary Rowett is odds-on to be Neil Harris’ successor.

Caretaker manager Adam Barrett oversaw his second match in charge following Harris’ resignation as the Lions blew a two-goal lead at Brentford on Saturday before losing 3-2.

Barrett was on a shortlist of three candidates with Rowett and Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth for the job.

The new manager’s first game in charge is set to be against Stoke City on Saturday.
