Neil Harris gives injury update after Millwall’s League Cup exit

Neil Harris has confirmed Jem Karacan will be looked at in the next couple of days ahead of this weekend’s clash with Sheffield United.

The Lions midfielder came off in with 15 minutes remaining in the defeat to Fulham in the League Cup on Tuesday night.

Millwall exited at the third round stage having failed to make it through to the next phase for the first time since the 2005/06 season.

Karacan started for Harris’ men but was withdrawn through in during in defeat to the Premier League side. 

He was replaced with Shaun Williams on the 74-minute mark with a what to be a cosmetic knee injury.

Speaking after the game, Harris updated the assembled media on the midfielder and how the injury occurred: “Just studs down his knee. 

“He has got a gash, he needs stitches, so we will have to see how he is in the next couple of days.”

The Lions fave Sheffield United on Saturday and the 29-year-old will be assessed ahead of the clash at The Den to determine his involvement.

The Verdict

Another injury doubt for the Lions who have seemingly had more in the first couple of months of this season than they had in the entirety of last term.

Ryan Tunnicliffe remains a doubt for the weekend, but Ryan Leonard is available against his parent club.

So if Karacan is out, then that limits the opinions Neil Harris has in the middle of the pitch. 

Things aren’t going well for the Lions at present, and even little innocuous situations like this take their toll.

Millwall’s luck surely has to turn sooner or later.
