Millwall winger suffers fracture and knee ligament damage

MILLWALL winger Paris Cowan-Hall sustained a hairline fracture to his tibia during Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Reading, the club has announced.

A specialist has also diagnosed that Cowan-Hall damaged ligaments at the back of his knee.

The Lions have not put a timescale on his recovery but it appears the January signing will be sidelined for the foreseeable future.

Physio Bobby Bacic told the club's official site: "Paris has already seen one specialist and he will have a second opinion next week before a decision is made on whether surgery will be required to repair the small stabilising ligament.

"The alternative, pending the outcome of that decision, is to take a conservative approach and allow the ligament to heal naturally.

"Although the news is a huge blow to Paris and to the club, a crumb of comfort can be taken from the fact that these injuries usually happen alongside the more significant crucial ligaments, which in this case, thankfully, are intact.

"We will update everyone after Paris has his appointment."

      @brooker: 6 people think it won't turn out being a waste of money signing someone who got injured on his first training session took 3 weeks to play, plays one game and gets injured possibly for the remainder of the season and we will pay wages every week while he lays on a bench. Then he makes a recovery, can we guarantee he will be the same player?
      Ok I retract my statement
      Oh what good value for money we are getting from him

        @brooker:
        What a moany c*** you are. For your information Mr know f*** all, Beevers took him out in training leading to his 1st injury, and someone else clearly took him out on Tuesday (and they did, I was there and remember the tackle) so it's hardly the lads fault isit!? Get a grip and think before you speak , you just sound like an idiot. Yet another clueless poster on news at den, SHOCK! How you can even suggest he is a waste of money after 45 minutes just shows that some people will moan about anything! PATHETIC

          @82wall: Thank goodness some people on here speak some sense. Seriously, do we really think pch had been anything other than unlucky? He worked really hard on Tuesday, with a spring in his step (got up really well for a lot of high balls) and then after the game his leg swelled up. These things happen, and unfortunately it's happened in the poor bloke's first game. He's not 'made of glass' but of flesh and bone. If we feel gutted, how do you think he feels?
          Look, we're going through an unlucky patch at the moment; admittedly that's not helped by some dubious management decisions which are making those bad breaks (literally in this case) all the more damaging to our current plight.
          As far as bad luck that this ground has brought us is concerned, well I don't remember us getting to a couple of cup finals, an FA cup semi-final and two other trips to Wembley when we were in Cold Blow Lane, and I was going there since 1963. There will always be good times and bad times with Millwall, and to be honest that goes for nearly club in the country.
          Swings and roundabouts, swings and roundabouts...

    These players play for clubs most of the season without getting injured,then as soon as we sign them they get injured instantly! Paris-Hall could have made an impact for us,so bit gutted.At least we still have good wide options now that fabbrini's on board.

        @The Roar: well it's true, they normally turn up fit as fleas then get crocked in first training session, at least this time he was giving his all for the team, sad to see him out he looks like a breath of fresh air, hopefully he can make a quick recovery. Could do with s*** weather and a whole month of postponements, get him back and we still have loads of games left

    Gutted for the lad.
    Ffs you can't make this s*** up.
    Who remembers the Chinese bloke who condemned our ground saying that the position and location was all wrong and that it will eventually bring nothing but bad luck. He weren't far wrong although we've had a bit of success since. But this is beyond a joke now and it's taken the club 4 days to tell us. Cheers wall. Just as we have something to change the mood somewhat we get this s*** news on match day.
    I've tried being positive but Millwall is the only thing that knows how to take it away from me. This past couple weeks have been the first time this season when ollie was looking at a settled side but now has to make 3 changes and we can't even blame him for it. Pointless bringing Fred back let him continue his development at Wycombe for rest of the season. It's doing him the world of good.
    we might even have a couple now faces by next week.
    COYLs another spirited point will do me today.

      @lukesmithmfc: The problem is like every other January transfer window we make last minute panic signings on the final day before the window closes. We had all the Summer and the whole of this month to bring players in. Okay, we have made a number of new signings this month but only two of them were permanent and one of them is already injured probably for the rest of the season. Still no striker, so what 30 year old + forward will we sign at the last minute? I think we are certain to be relegated now unless we sign a goal scoring forward and that is unlikely or we would have done so by now.

      @lukesmithmfc: seriously chaps. We are Millwall.

      I don't need some Chinese bloke to tell me that the position of the ground will bring bad luck.

      I was born Millwall and will die Millwall.

      I could have got really unlucky and been born in Wallington or Guildford. Then I would have had to support that pile of crap from old Stratford or worse still the ruskies of the west.

    Looks like we have got ourselves yet another player made of glass, it's funny that the established Millwall players play week in week out but it's the newbies that can't cut the mustard. He will become firm friends with Bailey, Edwards and Martinez as he has already spent more time with them than the players that actually turn up for a match.

    The poxy ground we play on was built on the site of an old church which was demolished. There has, and always will be a curse on the club. I'm generally a glass half full geezer, but we are cursed here, should have never left the old Den. That's my opinion and just how I feel. I think all these things are happening for a reason.

    How much more bad fortune can one club stand? We might just have to get the bloody ground exorcised to get rid of the evil omens about the place.

    Still, reckon we might nick it 1-0 today. COYL!
