AIDEN O’Brien is due to see a specialist next week regarding his ankle injury.

The striker was stretchered off in the draw to Wimbledon last weekend and will miss all of August with ruptured ankle ligaments.

And Lions head physio Bobby Bacic has revealed O’Brien will receive a “unique” type of procedure.

Bacic told the club’s official site: ”Aiden remains in his protective boot and tomorrow will go for a special type of injection where the specialist will perform a very unique procedure.

“This involves injecting a clinical dextrose (sugar) into the ankle joint which acts as a bridge to knit the two ruptured ends of Aiden's ligament together.

He added: ”The procedure works best with Aiden's type of ankle injury and will help him over the long-term to have a stable ankle.

In other news, midfielder Kris Twardek has suffered a fracture dislocation in his second toe and is set to miss out on Saturday’s friendly away at Stevenage, whilst goalkeeper Tom King has moved to National League side Welling United on a one-month youth loan.

    Another one down, can the bookies take bets on Martin and Paris picking up another injury before the season starts! Couldn't make this s*** up! Why don't they line the training ground with bubble wrap! They'd still pick up an injury tho! No other teams players drop like ours!

    The way football is nowadays, no loyalty and players constantly injured is it any wonder why a lot of fans don't bother anymore!!! If millwall was run properly like letting kids in for a quid to fill the stadium and having 11 committed players on the pitch I'm sure fans that have stayed away would come back.

    Football has changed too much, too much money has f***** the loyalty all together.
