Ben Thompson might not play again for Millwall this season, boss Neil Harris admits, in a blow which could hurt their hopes of avoiding relegation from the Championship.

The midfielder went off with a hamstring injury in the 1-1 draw with Brentford on Good Friday and didn't feature in the defeat to Aston Villa a few days later.

Thompson will soon have a scan to assess the extent of the damage but early signs suggest his season might be over.

Harris, speaking after the loss to Villa, said: "Thommo, if I'm being honest, he hasn't had a scan yet because of the timing. 

"He got injured on Good Friday and, being Easter Monday, we still won't get a scan tomorrow (April 23).

"But the likelihood is he won't play again this season."

The 23-year-old, who has made 13 appearances for Millwall across all competitions during this campaign, spent half of the season on loan to promotion-chasing Portsmouth in League One.

He didn't travel with the squad to Aston Villa where a Jonathan Kodjia goal gifted the hosts all three points, only the striker's second league goal in 2019.

But it was an outstanding performance by goalkeeper David Martin, producing a fine string of saves, which prevented Villa from increasing their lead.

Millwall will host Stoke City and Bristol City before travelling to Wigan Athletic on the final day of the Championship season.

They sit three points above Rotherham United, in 21st place, with three games remaining compared with Rotherham's two.
