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."
