Millwall defender Alex Pearce has stated that he’s now back to being available to play after stepping in for Gary Rowett.
The former Stoke City manager was unable to take the recent Millwall games as he had to go into self-isolation due to Covid.
The Lions lost the match on Saturday to Huddersfield Town, with the Terriers running out comfortable 3-0 winners at The Den, a rare home defeat for a strong Millwall side.
Pearce has expressed that himself and Shaun Williams enjoyed the experience of being part of the coaching staff over the last couple of weeks, and has now stated that the pair are available for Tuesday night’s fixture.
Speaking to London News Online, Pearce said: “Who knows – I’m only 31. Willo as well – we’ve both got some more playing time in our legs, so we will just take each day at a time. Don’t look to far ahead.

It’s a big season for Millwall and it’s interesting to see how the manager and players react to Rowett returning and if he can give them an extra lift and help them get in the play-offs.
Pearce did a solid job as manager of the side for the time-being and it would have been an experience that has opened his mind up to the possibility of managing a club in the future.
Millwall will have big aims for the season, and the Lions will hope that they can continue the start to the campaign they’ve had and make sure that Saturday’s defeat was just a blip.
