Millwall sweating on Tyson scan results after ankle injury

MILLWALL fear Nathan Tyson could be out for over a month after the Derby County loanee damaged a ligament in his ankle on Saturday.

The striker has undergone a scan to determine the extent of the problem but Lions boss Kenny Jackett expects the 30-year-old to be sidelined for at least several weeks.

Tyson was making his first appearance for the club as a half-time substitute against Burnley when he sustained a heavy knock just minutes after coming on.



If Jackett's worst fears are realised, he could be forced to re-enter the transfer market to bolster his attacking ranks, with Darius Henderson already in the treatment room with a foot problem.

Tyson was introduced on the left side of midfield against the Clarets but Jackett says he intends to use the former Nottingham Forest man up front – albeit when he is fit again.

He said:  "The plan is to use him as a forward, definitely. In the second-half he played on the left of a front three. His preference, although he can play down the left, is to play through the middle.

"I would suggest that it will work out that way."

    How come every other supporter of clubs he has previously played for have said countless times that he is nothing more than a Darren Anderton. Typical of our luck at the moment. With Henderson unfit (surprise, surprise) Robbo not available & Tam not getting a look-in, where is this all gonna lead. I feel as though our bubble has burst. I really hope I'm wrong!

    Anyone agree with me in saying that we should go for Marlon King? I know he did time for sexual assault but he can easily score at this level. Plus a Mirror journalist said he's available on a free. Birmingham do have financial problems so it could be true.

    Another 6/7 points and the M.F.C season is over. Does anyone else think that the Championship, or as I prefer to know it Division 2, is as far as this club can ever safely survive. I reckon the loss of Wood has shown the squad that the club has no real ambition & that will be reflected on the pitch. M.F.C. could not afford promotion FACT !

      'No real ambition'. I have to laugh whenever I hear that b*******. We are one of the smallest supported clubs in the division, and because we cant spend millions and millions its because of 'lack of ambition'. Remember we are a club with poor support(unless its wembley). We are only the 3rd biggest in South London

    Marlon King is on about 25k a week, that's why birmingham are trying to get him off their wage bill!!!!! Agree with male choir, we are MILLWALL, if you want a club who splash money around, go support chelsea!!! Or if you want a club who spend money they haven't got go support Portsmouth (for as long as they last!!!). It's got nothing to do with lack of ambition, it's to do with reality and making sure there's a club for us to support

    Remember Berylsons first programme notes?
    He said he wares to turn us in to an
    Established Championship side.
    We have allways been a 2nd or 3rd tier
    Club and the chairman knew this so he is
    Being realistic, that's why he told Wood to
    To go and that's why we can't push too soon
    As for Tyson its not the first time we've had loan players
    Injured. Give him a chance. There is still time in the
    Season to save it.

      Well said Ozeyn117!!! Some of the comments slagging off Berylson are ridiculously naive and extremely insulting to a man who had dug deeply into his pockets over the last few seasons to get us into the Championship and keep us there. The buffoons who advocate spending a fortune in pursuit of Premier League football are clearly oblivious to the problems that policy has caused clubs like Portsmouth, Leeds and Nott'm Forest to name just three.
      They've also clearly forgotten that it wasn't all that long ago that the Lions went into 'administration' (thankfully no 10-point deduction in those days) and were staring into the abyss after living beyond their means in pursuit of a return to the top flight.
      If we finished the season in ninth place it would still be one of the most successful seasons in the club's history.
      Berylson and Jackett are both fiercely ambitious but they are also determined not to sacrifice the club's long term future by chasing short term - and probably short-lived - glory! Instead of slagging them off, we should be thanking our lucky stars that we've got them in charge.
      Having said all that, how about a cheeky bid for Billy McKay before the window closes!!!
