Neil Harris says Shane Ferguson missed Millwall’s 1-0 defeat to Burton with illness.

Ferguson, 26, played the full 90 minutes against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.

But the Northern Ireland winger was not well enough to make the Lions’ bench today.

When asked about Ferguson’s omission from the squad, Millwall manager Harris said: “Shane was ill.

“He was struggling after the game the other night. He’s been ill for the last couple of days.

“He’s struggling with sickness and diarrhoea so couldn't be involved.”

Ferguson has made 17 appearances for Millwall this season, mostly from the bench. He has been competing with Aiden O’Brien for a starting berth.
