Millwall manager Neil Harris has heaped praise on Norwich City winger Ben Marshall ahead of his side’s clash with the Canaries this weekend.

Norwich signed Marshall from Wolves over the summer, beating Millwall to his signature in a deal thought to be worth £1.5m.

Marshall, however, has struggled at Carrow Road this season and not made an appearance for the club since August.

He started the season at right-back, before moving to the wing after making some costly errors at the back.

The Englishman has been in and out of the matchday squads in recent weeks, after suffering from an illness last month.

Harris has praised the form of Norwich this season and cited it as the reason why Marshall has been sitting on the bench.

Marshall spent last season on loan to Millwall, where he impressed, and Harris is a big fan of him as a player.

Speaking to The Pink’Un, Harris said this:

He’s a top player at this level and it shows how well Norwich have been doing that he can’t get into the team. A player they’ve spent good money on can’t get a game.

It shows what we’re up against. Ben had a great spell with us and we’re fully aware of his capabilities and his class.
