Millwall boss explains Jed Wallace substitution at Sheffield Wednesday


Millwall attacker Jed Wallace was feeling sick before Saturday’s clash against Sheffield Wednesday.

The Lions were held to their second successive 0-0 draw at Hillsborough, following on from Tuesday’s draw at Carrow Road against Norwich.

Millwall manager Gary Rowett said: “We took Jed off, Jed felt sick before the game.”

Millwall have suffered with coronavirus more than most clubs in the Championship this season, with Rowett returning a positive test which forced him to miss three games.

“Our medical staff were quite happy it wasn’t any symptoms of Covid,” said Rowett. “He wanted to start but you could see straight away he wasn’t giving us that same level of spark he normally gives us.

“Whether that contributed to our lack of attacking quality I don’t know. But, we certainly didn’t play anywhere near well enough.”
