MILLWALL loanee Andy Wilkinson has returned to parent club Stoke City for treatment on a back injury.

The Lions had been planning to extend the defender's loan deal until the end of the season but may be forced into a re-think if his fitness is a concern.

Wilkinson's temporary deal in south London is due to expire in the middle of January, so bringing in a right back could now become a priority for manager Ian Holloway.

Holloway will wait for an update on Wilkinson's condition before deciding whether to keep the 30-year-old or move into the transfer market for a replacement.
