JAMES Henry is touch-and-go to face Wigan at Wembley in Millwall's FA Cup semi-final next month, manager Kenny Jackett has revealed.
Henry is in a race against the clock to be involved against the Latics on April 13 after a surgeon ruled that his knee ligament injury is not as serious as first feared.
The 23-year-old was initially told he would miss the remainder of the season but is now targeting a return to action just in time for the Lions' last-four tie at the national stadium.
When asked whether Henry would be fit, Jackett told NewsAtDen: "I think if you asked him, he would say 'yes' but I don't know. It will be very close, so I'd say it's doubtful.
"It will be around about that time that he'll be fit again so we shall see. If it does happen and he gets enough training in it will be a nice surprise.
"It looks more of a 'no' than a 'yes' but sometimes people can have a few good weeks and you just never know – he could make it but we're not sure at present."
But Jackett is confident that Henry, who also missed both of Millwall's League One play-off finals at Wembley in 2009 and 2010, will return before the end of the campaign.
"It does look like James will play some part in the season," he said. "There's no reason why he can't play in the last fortnight and finish off what has been a very good season for him.
"He's very keen to do that. He wants to get back and finish in the manner he has played all year."
