MILLWALL captain Paul Robinson has been sidelined for a "few weeks" after sustaining a thigh injury.

The defender revealed on his Twitter page that he had spent Saturday morning in an oxygen chamber to speed up his recovery from a grade-one tear in his thigh.

Robinson's injury could rule him out of Millwall's hotly-anticipated London derby with bitter rivals West Ham, which takes place in a fortnight's time.

The Lions are already without suspended defenders Alan Dunne and Shane Lowry, as well as long-term injury absentee Tamika Mkandawire.

Tony Craig has replaced Robinson in Millwall's starting line-up for their match against Barnsley this afternoon.
