Millwall could dip into the loan market for a new right-back ahead of Saturday’s Championship game at Huddersfield Town.
That’s after news that Carlos Edwards faces surgery after damaging a knee and hamstring during Saturday’s goalless home draw against Nottingham Forest.
The 35-year-old Trinidad & Tobago defender, signed from Ipswich Town after a loan stint at The New Den last season, has started all eight Championship games so far.
Midfielder Jimmy Abdou moved back after Edwards was forced off seven minutes into the Forest clash.
Manager Ian Holloway could call on Justin Hoyte.
But the former Arsenal and Middlesbrough man appears to be out of favour.
Teenager Josh Siafa is another option.
He played in the Capital One Cup win over Wycombe Wanderers.
Former FC Halifax Town striker Lee Gregory is pushing for a place in the squad after impressing in the development game against Leeds United.
The summer signing has made two starts and two appearances from the bench so far.
The South Londoners are 13th in the table and chasing a first win in four, having lost at Ipswich Town and Reading before the Forest clash.
They earlier chalked up wins over Leeds, Fulham and Blackpool.
