MILLWALL boss Kenny Jackett has confirmed that Nathan Tyson's ankle injury is likely to keep him sidelined for the next month.
Tyson damaged a ligament just minutes into his debut against Burnley last weekend and returned to parent club Derby County to undergo a scan.
The 30-year-old's injury, coupled with the departures of Chris Wood and Darius Henderson, leaves the Lions short of options up front but Jackett says he will be backed to strengthen his squad.
"Tyson will be out for about a month," Jackett said. "We've only got him on a three-month loan and he's going to miss the first of it. He's got an ankle ligament injury.
"His ankle is very swollen at present. We'll have to see how that is. We do need to strengthen the squad before the transfer deadline. If we can, we will.
"We feel we have a good side but not a deep-enough squad and we need more competition in the forward positions. We need some fresh players that can supplement what we have.
"The chairman will back me financially in terms of bringing numbers in. It will not necessarily be a scatter-gun approach because that is not our style. We want to stay around these play-off positions.
"We want to be attacking the top part of this league. Is there someone coming in before Friday night or Tuesday? There’s nobody on the radar right now."
