Millwall are waiting to discover the full extent of Aiden O’Brien and Shaun Williams’ injuries sustained in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Bristol City.
O’Brien was stretchered off with a knee injury following a tackle by Adam Webster.
And it was the same City player who made a last-ditch attempt to prevent Williams from netting the Lions’ equaliser.
It meant the Millwall goalscorer was forced off after levelling up the contest at Ashton Gate.
The Lions were already missing three strikers at Bristol. O’Brien started up top because Tom Elliott and Lee Gregory were missing. Tom Bradshaw (knee) will not be back until next season.
O’Brien will have a scan this week and Millwall manager Harris said: “I think in the case of a knee it’s serious or nothing. We’ll hope for the nothing.
“In the modern game the amount of injuries you get with ligaments, it’s unbelievable. Once we scan we’ll know more.
“Shaun Williams is ankle ligaments. Until it settles down we don’t know how long that’s going to be.
“But I’m not going to bemoan injuries, it is what it is. We had a fine run without injuries last season. If we get them this year then people need to step up.”
