Hayles: Set to miss run-in
As if things couldn't get any worse, Millwall are set to finish the season without two key players with the news that striker Barry Hayles and midfielder Jody Morris have both been ruled out thanks to injury.

Morris was stretchered off during Saturday's defeat at Pride Park with a knee injury while Hayles was missed the game with a recurrence of the injury that kept him out of the side for four months.

"It looks as if both Haylesy and Jody will possibly be ruled out for the rest of the season," commented Dave Tuttle. "It is obviously very disappointing for both of them, and also for the rest of us too."

With relegation almost inevitable after back-to-back defeats, both players are expected to depart The Den in the summer as The Lions look to trim the wage bill.
