MILLWALL striker Aiden O’Brien will miss all of August with ruptured ankle ligaments.
The 21-year-old was stretched off after only 15 minutes of Saturday’s pre-season friendly with Wimbledon, and scans have confirmed the extent of O’Brien’s injury.
O’Brien rolled his ankle in a challenge with Dons captain Barry Fuller as the forward bared down on goal.
Neil Harris told NewsAtDen: ”He's been for a scan, we've waited for the report on that.
“The injury he's got is ruptured ankle ligaments.”
“Fingers crossed with the bad luck of the injury, there's good news that it heals faster and healthier.”
O'Brien tweeted a photo of the incident on Sunday evening, pointing out he will be back in better condition than before the injury occurred.
