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.

    I think Dunne has got a voodoo doll of all right backs in the squad so he can get back in the team and look like the "hero" again with one of his inspirational talks. S**t RB and even worse at CB

    Wilko was fantastic so far, how about we sign him anyway?

    this is really bad news - Dunne will be his usual limited self - no distribution etc- and even if we get a good replacement it will take time to bed in - more changes and confusion - could be Harding at right back

      @timchimes: Problem is that Ollie appears to be in love with Dunne so he'll play him anyway. Right back, centre half it matters not and that's one of the reasons we've got a crap defence. The other is my old mate Shittu.

        @NICKOLA: Not so sure Ollie likes him as a right back, otherwise he wouldn't have got Edwardes in last season. Hopefully the scales have fallen from his eyes and he can see what an average player Dunne is in any position. Top fellah, Millwall though-and-through, but League 1 standard at best.

          @junkmale: its players like dunne and mcdonald that alot of managers seem to like..they will run all day and always give there all to a team.even if there all is not up to the standards we would like..dunne is a midfield player so why dont he play him as a defensive mid which would free up the creative ones...as for mcdonald he provex saturday he is a striker cos a mid he is not
