Millwall's hopes of survival have been dealt an injury blow to two senior players.
Millwall's hopes of Championship survival have been dealt an injury blow to two senior players.
Striker Barry Hayles and midfielder Jody Morris will miss the remaining four games of the season after both suffered knee problems.
Hayles (pictured) suffered a recurrence of a knee injury that had sidelined him for up to four months this season, while Morris needed to be stretchered off in the first half of Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Derby County with a knee socket problem.
The loss of the experienced pair could not have come at a worse time for the South East London club, as The Lions face the real prospect of relegation to League One in the weeks to come.
"It is obviously very disappointing for both of them, and also for the rest of us too," Millwall boss David Tuttle told the club's official website.
