Knee injury rules Millwall winger Henry out for the season

MILLWALL winger James Henry is expected to miss the rest of the season after a scan revealed he has severe ligament damage in his left knee.

The news was announced by manager Kenny Jackett after his side's 2-0 defeat to Wolves at The Den and compounded a miserable 24 hours for the club.

Henry sustained the injury in a tackle with Leeds United left-back Stephen Warnock at the weekend – a challenge Jackett said could have resulted in a broken leg.

And Jackett revealed the 23-year-old is unlikely to play again this term. He said: "Henry will be out for the rest of the season. He has a knee ligament injury due to the tackle on Saturday.

"We've had the results of a scan. It doesn't really surprise me given the severity of the tackle. We did the scan once the swelling on his knee had settled down and his ligament is stretched.

"It does look like that is his season done."

Asked whether he would turn to the loan market to strengthen his squad as a result, Jackett added: "I'll think about that. The first things is the players I have.

"They have to put in a better performance than they did against Wolves, that's imperative. Whether we need anybody from the outside will be an assessment of the response I get from the players."

    Things just keep getting better. Really sorry for JH, only one of two players who could be relied on every game. Please don't talk of more loan players, KJ'S recent record of taking players on loan has not exactly been successful.

    And the good news just keeps on coming, James Henry I'm absolutely gutted for you, I really hope it's not too bad pal cause you do not deserve this. Just like Taylor before you the timing could not be worse.
    Fingers crossed mate.

    Henry has been our best player, bar possibly only Forde, all season!

    We have got to keep the faith, and get behind the boys.

      Yes we have downunder, shame we offered none last night. James was sorely missed and left the side completely unbalanced.

    Sods law that it would happen during what is surely his best season at the club so far. Let's hope he has a speady recovery and manages to pick up where he left off
