STEVE Lomas believes the number of injuries Millwall have suffered this season has been purely down to bad luck.
With so many players requiring a spell on the sidelines in recent months, Lions fans have raised concerns about the fitness levels within the squad.
Scott McDonald's pulled hamstring 48 hours before the Bolton defeat was the latest in a string of training-ground injuries.
But Lomas said: "We have been unlucky. If you look at Mark Beevers' injury, it was a twist. If you look at Scott Malone's, it's a fall and a twist.
"Thrown into that the suspensions we have had and three players needing surgery, you're talking at least eight or nine games where we've had to make changes.
"In fact, we've only been able to name the same team in two consecutive games – against Blackpool and Charlton. There's nothing you can do with impact injuries.
"Speaking to Bobby Bacic, we are down on muscle injuries from last year and people don't see that. We are having a bit of bad luck at the minute and we hope it readdresses itself."
