Millwall midfielder Ben Thompson went off with a hamstring injury in today’s 1-1 draw with Brentford – which makes it look unlikely he will be fit for Easter Monday’s trip to Aston Villa.

The attacking midfielder, who has largely played in a number 10 role since returning from his loan at Portsmouth, was fouled by  Henrik Dalsgaard – earning the Bees captain a straight red card.

But minutes later he had to be replaced by Tom Elliott after an extended spell of treatment.

Harris said: “At the moment we don’t know – it looks like a hamstring. We’ll have to see how he is.

“He’s been our best player in the last couple of months, so it was a major blow.”
