The Mossley co-manager suffered an accident during training at Wright Robinson College, Abbey Hey, last week. He slipped while clambering over a fence and impaled both his hands on spikes.
His partner, Peter Band, said: "Lloyd had to pull himself free and with the amount of blood coming from the wounds it was like something from a low-budget horror movie. For some reason he's blaming me.
"Lloyd's due for an operation tomorrow (Thursday) which will be a nice way to spend his birthday."
After a run of poor results, the two co-bosses have trimmed the size of the Seel Park squad, which had swelled to more than 30. In what Band describes as bit of a cull, he and Morrison have released fringe players such as Saul Henderson, Jay Mehmet and Jordan Jacobs.
However striker Brian Matthews, who had looked set for a move to Glossop North End, has decided to fight for a place in the Mossley team. Ross Davidson's unavailability for the Doodson Cup tie with Northwich Victoria gave Matthews his chance and he responded by scoring the Lilywhites' only goal.
"Brian had been playing at Winsford, which is a fairly long way to go on your own for training. He lives in Denton so Glossop would have been easy to get to, but he's decided to stay.
"Glossop are a good club but they could well finish runners-up in their division. If they get promoted they come up to our division which is where Brian already is," said Band, who insists he remains optimistic despite a run of three defeats, including the 5-1 league cup reverse.
He continued: "No one likes to lose 5-1 but sometimes you can learn a lot about yourselves in a game like that.
"We ought to have five or six points more than we have. It's hard to compete against a big club like Darlington but we were very disappointed to lose at New Mills because after a bad first half we played very well.
"It's a crazy division. We beat Warrington in the FA Trophy and then they went and beat Exeter in the FA Cup.
"What we've got to do is make sure we finish top of our mini-league. We've barely played a league match for a month so other clubs have caught us up.
"Our next two matches are against Brighouse and Prescot. These are games we should have a chance of winning and if we do that we'll be up to 29 points. Last season we only got 42 in total."
