The Welsh international who has three caps for his country, will find this injury even more frustrating as he is yet to get properly started in a Millwall shirt. He has made 10 appearances for the Lions so far this season, eight of those as a substitute and is yet to find the net for his new club. He will now have to wait until next season to make him mark in a Millwall shirt after this season ending injury. Neil Harris said after Saturday’s defeat at Norwich that he looks forward to working with the striker next season.
