Rotherham midfielder set for spell on sidelines

Rotherham United central midfielder Lee Frecklington is set for a spell on the sidelines after sustaining a calf injury in their recent victory over MK Dons. Sky Sports believes the former Lincoln City youngster will be out of action for approximately a fortnight.

The 30-year-old endured a lengthy spell because of an injury of this nature earlier this season, however the Millers don’t expect him to be out for a few months like he was on that occasion.

With Rotherham as good as safe from relegation after their emphatic victory over relegation-threatened MK Dons last Saturday, there is no real need to rush Frecklington back.

Speaking after the win at stadiummk, manager Neil Warnock revealed that Frecklington has sustained a problem in the first half and that they didn’t want to take any unnecessary risks,

“He only stiffened up, he didn’t feel it go, so hopefully it’s not more than a couple of weeks with his calf, but the amount of running he has done in the last week in the three games, bloody hell!”

Frecklington has played a major part in Rotherham’s recent upturn in form, in addition to the arrival of the experienced Warnock. The hard-working midfielder has started 21 Championship matches this season, scoring four goals. The most recent of those strikes came in the home victory against Leeds United on April 4th at the New York Stadium.
