Millwall's O'Brien to have "unique" procedure on ankle injury

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.

    I'm gonna sound like an old man now, its all these stupid flimsy pathetic boots, they offer no protection, I remember when that Craig Johnston predator came out, it was like having armour on the toes, and after that they just went thinner and lighter, make them train in heavy steel toe caps and American rugby gear

      @brooker: although that has real bearing on an ankle injury, other than they are a shoe not a boot and offer no support to the ankle

    On a serious note that tackle on obrien could have done a lot more damage thank god it never nice to see club looking after him be good to see him back a fighter upfront and hopefully a few goals

    Sorry to say it but with an injury like AOBs he will be out far longer than 6 weeks - then he has the rehab, may need a op, and then he has to get fit again. October will be wishful thinking - I am not being a downer but damaged ligaments can take ages and if you try to come back to early no good at all. Just been down the bookies had a score on Horatio being in the most Wall goal celebration pictures next season if and when he plays. Where's Fred no news for a couple of days somebody is slipping up somewhere. The Webbie Webster story has been on before last couple of weeks.
    We want a scoreboard when do we want it NOW - Perhaps somebody knows a cricket club where Wall could borrow the one where somebody changes the score by hand after each goal - mind you want get much use for the Wall score. Did anybody get a postcard from Portugal mine must have got lost in the post. COME ON WALL ADVERTISING ON THE SIDES OF THE STADIUM SO ALL THE COMPUTERS ON THE TRAINS CAN SEE IT - MACDONALDS, BMW, TWIX, COCO POPS, would be good ones for a start.
    TOPpre season tip - BENTIKE TO BE TOP PREM GOALSCORER YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST.

    At least Harris won't have a selection headache come the Shrewsbury match. We'll be lucky to put out a team the way things are shaping up.

    Scunthorpe signed Darius Henderson. He could have done a job upfront!

    Can they find "a unique procedure" to find a striker?

    they should maybe just use "A" technique to find a striker.
    I reckon we are waiting for the premier league to start making proper movements trickling down to the championship then we will look at a season long loan from someone, rather than buying any old sh*t

    First time on site but been following it for some time now, have been supporting since early 50s, so have seen this sittuation many times before but the thing about going through bad times is at sometime soon there will be a few good times but that's what supporting Millwall is all about but the one thing I have learned over the years is not to s*** of youngsters who need supporting for a couple of years before they reach there best . Good luck to bomber this year lets get behind him and not give him s*** posts if we don't start well this year , remember it's not how you start it's how you finish .

      @timchimes: I remember Fulham away, couple lads cheering "we are top of the league" and thinking please don't jinx us!!!

      Things were looking good everyone cheering "olley olley olley"

      I think with league 1 it's about good runs... If we get off to a good start the youngsters will enjoy their football and thrive... If we get off to a bad start we need to get behind them at The Den.
