New machine to aid Malone's recovery, says Millwall physio

MILLWALL physio Bobby Bacic has revealed that a machine purchased by the club last year will aid Scott Malone's recovery from a knee injury.

The new piece of kit, called a Game Ready unit, was recently acquired by the medical department for £5,000.

It pumps ice cold water around the injured area and could help Malone return to action ahead of schedule.



Bacic said: "The machine ices and compresses the knee so we were able to begin Scott's treatment very quickly.

"Bone bruising doesn't sound painful but if you don't treat it properly and respect it, it can be problematic. You've got to be very, very careful with it.

"Alan Dunne had a similar problem six years ago and he was struggling with it for practically a whole season, so Scott will be given time to make a full recovery.



"His rehabilitation will involve a lot of swimming and bike work. If you rush back from bone bruising early it can drag on. There is a lot of bruising and inflamation of the joint itself.

"But it's not a serious injury – that would have been a torn ligament or cartilage damage, which have both been ruled out."

    Stop press !! Millwall by a new piece of medical kit (last year) we are now in November to help Scott Malone, has no one else at the club used this since it was purchased over 11 months ago, good filler on a slow news day, and also a lot about about Alan Dunnes injury 6 years ago (it is still affecting him looking at some of his performances this season).

    New treatment found byMillwall staff swimming so that there is no weight on the kneen when exercising and after a period of time increse the load but not fully by using a bike. Just get him fit and sort out the leaking defence will yer.

    Lots of swimming and bike work, stick Shittu on that regime it may work off some of the close season burgers.

      Got that right. Put Shittu on a bike, get him to do 20 miles a day. By the next game he should be in the highlands with a bit of luck.

    £5,000 on a new piece of medical kit eh? - should be the least the club should be paying out to help our consistently crocked squad from whatever training regime is battering them until they are declared not match fit. How many minutes does £5,000 buy to have a disinterested Moro on the bench (assuming we picking up the majority of tab from Leeds). I think we need plenty more state of the art medical equipment purchased to help our squad out this season, plus a crane to move Shittu around the pitch and a foghorn to wake the rest of the defence and keeper up on game day.

    Better off spending the money on hiring a fitness coach who doesn't resemble Mr Blobby!

    Maybe we could rent it out to the likes of Mourinho. Might bring his head down to size.

    Who the f*** employed that fat f*** of a fitness coach? I mean, surely if you're a coach/trainer or a manager you should be leading by example? The c*** looks like he irons his shirts using a wok!

      @MFC Lion: MFC mate now we know why all these injuries are taking for ever to clear up, if he does not think that it only sounds painful, maybe BB may go the way of JJ,

      But once again people employed by the club go into print and all that they say is something to worry supporters about the way the club is run, as it seems that the lunatics may be running the asylum anyway as far as Millwall are concered.

    Apparently the chubby fitness coach is called Alan Pearson, and his assistant is called Warren Cock.

    Bag of frozen peas always worked for me. You'd get a lot of Petit Pois for five grand in Lidl.
