Millwall boss Neil Harris says Steve Morison missed the Brentford clash due to a stomach tear. 

The 34-year-old striker was absent from the Lions' defeat at Griffin Park, and Harris revealed he has been carrying the injury for a while.

Morison is yet to get off the mark this season, but Millwall missed him in west London as they slumped to their second successive defeat.

Harris said: “He has a tear in his stomach. He has had it for two weeks and will be out for the foreseeable future.

“I doubt very much he will be available against Birmingham on Saturday.”
