Millwall duo back O'Brien to return from injury stronger

JOHN Marquis and Lee Gregory have backed their injured strike partner Aiden O’Brien to come back stronger from his injury.

The 21-year-old has been ruled out for up to six weeks with ruptured ankle ligaments suffered in the draw with Wimbledon on Saturday.

And the attacking duo have both given O’Brien their backing to return to playing sooner rather than later after the academy graduate was stretchered off.

“It isn't good timing for Aiden,” Marquis said. “Unfortunately, it’s all apart of football he will come back better and hopefully he can come back stronger.

“When he does come back he will appreciate being back involved and with the boys.

“Myself, I’ve been injured for long periods before, it isn't nice being in the treatment room everyday.

"He will really appreciate it all when he’s back on the pitch scoring goals again.”

Gregory added: “It’s a shame, especially in pre-season nobody one wants to get injured.

"Hopefully it isn't as bad as everyone has read and he will be back on the pitch soon.

“He’s a good lad, he’ll definitely come back stronger, hopefully after getting the results now, he knows exactly what it is, and, like I’ve said, I hope it isn’t as bad as it looks.”

    sorry but if you want to moan about this website why use it ... the people who write these areticle are keeping us informed on the mood in the team and by reading this it shows a togetherness that hasn't been in the team since the unbeaten run under ian holloway

    Has Morison signed yet ? Is Forde staying ? Has Maggie found another club yet ? If not can we get him back ? Are our new scouts out there anywhere looking for new talent ? have they found anybody ? Do you think we will bring in another Kane,or Wood on loan ? are the club looking at anybody of that elk ?
    if not why not ? come on cheer us all up with a megga signing or 2 or is that too much to ask ?

      @MIGHTY: I would love Maggie back he would do well in League 1, the fact that we did not even offer him or woolford a deal shows we are paying proper peanuts this season. Maggie was the only striker last season who looked a serious threat.

        @JONO: Totally agree he is still the unfinished business and used properly would tear league 1 defences apart with his pace.

    Can people please stop asking for "interesting" articles, and moaning about the content??

    They can only report on what's happening...and they obviously can't put out articles saying "NH is thinking about signing these players, and getting rid of these" as that just starts more speculation, and then ends up not happening anyway and people moan!

    Maybe they should just make up some news?

    "Millwall sign Messi on loan for 1 month - Barcelona decide he needs match fitness before La Liga starts and don't realise League 1 isn't quite the same"

      @JBMMFC: Reporters need to dig for stories and exciting news.. Admittedly the crew at NAD work for free and do the best they can, it's the Clubs fault for being non existent when it comes to showing us what efforts they are putting in. I hope we have something up our sleeve and are keeping quiet so other clubs cant poach our targets.

      To be honest though I can't see us signing anyone major.

      Mighty is right, questions need answering, the club need to stop feeding us turd and make a serious public statement regarding our aims for this season.

      @REAL Supporter: hello lee Jb said a few things.
      1 after 7 operation's in 18 month's he is now fit and ready to go,he can now worry about the team more than he has done whilst his operation's were going on.
      2 More emphasis will be put on youth .
      3 He did not say much more than we know already.
      4 He will buy player's when we need to.
      I took 2 thing's from this,we will be buying a centre forward because we need one ? and JB now he is fully fit after his operation's may get a game or two on the left wing.

          @jim1222: Hello Jim, yeah, very funny. I can't believe the season starts in a couple of weeks so I'll see you at the first home game. Sounds like Morison may be on his way here. I always thought him and bomber fell out so it remains to seen if he'll join us. I think the board may be having a whip round to pay his fee.

    The fact that they keep writing these nothing stories is worrying, can't the club even tell us if they are in search of a striker or not? Surely they are not contemplating starting the season with the squad as it is? That would be ridiculous.

      @Peckhamlad: I obviously can't be certain when I say this but I do think we will sign a striker, if not two more. I like most others am getting impatient with the lack of transfer activity, particularly as we edge closer to the start of the new season. What I don't get is that we actively pursued Hanson and when that didn't materialise we seemed to have no plan b and surely we must have one, and a plan c at that. I think there may be some developments this week and I do have a sneaky suspicion that Morison will be back. I for one think he will bang them in this division.
