Lee Gregory is set to have a scan to discover the full extent of his calf injury – the Millwall striker being forced off in today’s 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

Ryan Tunnicliffe’s excellent overhead kick sealed all three points for the South Londoners.

But Gregory was forced off in the second half with Aiden O’Brien replacing him.

Lions manager Neil Harris said: “Lee’s is a calf problem. We’ll have to scan him and see how he is in the next 48 hours.”

Tom Elliott also made way after that with Steve Morison coming on.

Harris said: “Tom got physically better as the game went on. But he has had tight groins. We’ve got Steve Morison the club captain who gives us that little bit of calmness and composure to bring him on.”
