FORMER Millwall striker Lewis Grabban will not return to The Den with Norwich City tomorrow after undergoing ankle surgery.

Grabban, who has scored 70 goals in 177 appearances since leaving the Lions in 2011, is the Canaries' leading marksman.

The 27-year-old was also absent for Bournemouth on the final day of last season.

Carrow Road boss Alex Neil said: "It's a huge blow. But we've got a big squad and we're now looking for the other guys to step up to the plate.

"It's not actually clear what the problem is, so once it's fixed, we'll have a better idea.

"He's done very well for us in the last six games, but he's struggling with his ankle."

    Don't worry Lewis, you wont need to have any more excuses not to play against us at the Den for a while after this season. Amazing you're always injured, having operations or just ill when it's time to play the Lions in the away fixture!

      @REAL Supporter: Hello Lee i will see you on sat against Norwich.
      Thing is about Grabben,to be fair to him i think as with a lot of player's in the present team he was played out of position KJ,we let him go cheap to bournmouth,they realise his true potential and then get's sold to norwich for load's of money,we can knock him all we like,but i think it was our managment failing's as well as Grabben's that are at fault here, as they have been for a long time now.
      As a crowd i think we get on the backs of our player's much more than other club's,Kitch,harry and weller all had fan's slagging them off when thing's did not go right (before any one say's OH NO WE DID'NT,i will answer that OH YES WE DID),so perhap's we as a crowd need to look at our self as well.
      Before people start to s*** me off please note i use the collective term we so i am including myself in this critical post.
      As i said see you on sat Lee.
      LUV you
