Lions won’t rush in making decision to appeal Jed Wallace red card against Burton Albion

Neil Harris will take his time before deciding if Millwall appeal Jed Wallace’s dismissal against Burton Albion.

The winger was shown a straight red for a trip on Tom Flanagan in the 59th minute at The Den.

Marvin Sordell went on to strike a 70th-minute goal to clinch all three points for the Brewers.

Wallace’s red card looked harsh but Harris told assembled media at the post-match press conference that he would not be seeking a conversation with referee Tony Harrington.

The Lions boss added: “I think I’ve been in to see about eight or nine referees this year, what’s the point?

“We won’t make a rash decision [on an appeal].”

Winger Shane Ferguson missed the match due to sickness.

“He was struggling after the game the other night,” said Harris. “He was struggling with sickness and couldn’t be involved today.”
