Millwall manager Neil Harris has injury issues ahead of Norwich City clash

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Millwall manager Neil Harris is hoping James Meredith will be fit for this weekend’s clash with Norwich City – after Murray Wallace was forced off in last night’s 2-1 defeat at Hull City.

The Scottish defender has been starting in recent weeks at left-back – scoring goals in the FA Cup against Everton and AFC Wimbledon – but he had to be replaced in the first half on Tuesday night.

So it would be timely if Meredith recovered from his knock to face Norwich, who are top of the Championship.

“Macca [Conor McLaughlin] is out of the weekend,” said Harris. “But [James] Meredith possibly has a chance of being fit. Mahlon [Romeo] is ill so we will have to see how he goes, but he was ill enough not to be able to travel.

“Murray [Wallace] we don’t know at the moment, but it certainly doesn’t look a good injury. He certainly looks very, very doubtful for the weekend. He got caught in the challenge leading up to the first goal – knee and ankle both locked.

“But we don’t know the extent of the damage. What I do know is Murray is as tough as a player as someone like Dave Livermore was when he put on the Millwall shirt. There is no tougher than Murray, so for him to come off like he did, it doesn’t look good.”
