Millwall team news for Sunderland match – Duncan Watmore resumes training ahead of Black Cats visit

Danny McNamara could return to Millwall’s squad for Saturday’s home game against Sunderland – with Duncan Watmore also resuming full training ahead of the visit of his former club.

The Lions will still be without left-back Joe Bryan for the visit of the Black Cats due to the groin injury he sustained against Blackburn in late October.

“Joe Bryan hasn’t returned to training with the group yet but is progressing well out on the grass with his individual rehab,” said Millwall head coach Joe Edwards. “Joe will still be at least another couple of weeks before featuring in games.”

Duncan Watmore played the final 30 minutes of last weekend’s Den defeat to Coventry but was absent for Wednesday’s 3-1 loss to Ipswich.

A knee injury had kept him out for five matches prior to featuring against the Sky Blues.

“Duncan was a disappointing one because he had a positive impact against Coventry,” said Edwards. “Then he had a slight irritation with his knee, so we lost Duncan the day before the game.

“He did rejoin us for training today (Thursday), so we’ll go again tomorrow and assess the fact that yes he is back out on the grass but how ready is he to be back involved in the game after missing out on Wednesday.

“Danny has been out for a couple of weeks but returned to training with the group for the first time today (Thursday), so he’s in the same position – available in terms of not being injured and ready to play a game after a few weeks out. We’ll have to assess that one tomorrow.”
