Millwall winger to miss Bournemouth clash with knee injury

©
©

THE knee injury sustained by Lee Martin against QPR last weekend is likely to keep him out of Millwall's final game of the season.

Martin had to be stretchered off during the first half of Saturday's 1-1 draw at Loftus Road when the studs of midfielder Tom Carroll sliced through his flesh.

And boss Ian Holloway says Martin has little chance of facing Bournemouth when the Lions bring down the curtain on their 2013-14 campaign at The Den.



"Lee's got a really nasty gash, down to the bone," Holloway said. "He's won a tackle on the edge of our box and won the ball with his foot, but he's been kicked up on his knee.

"I don't think somebody did that deliberately but I'll have to see it again. I think it was an accident.

"To lose him, with his pace and how well he's been doing, was a blow. We lost his explosive counter-attacking, which was really important to our gameplan.



"I don't think he will be available next Saturday – not with the placement of the cut and how deep it was. It's gone through some muscles.

"It's these blades – if you slip and they catch you, they can be dangerous."

    NOW, THATS SAD, CAUSE LEE MARTIN HAS BEEN PLAYING WELL LATELY AND I'M SURE
    HE WOULD HAVE LOVED TO BE PLAYING IN THIS SPECIAL CELEBRATION GAME.
    [ TAKE COMFORT THAT WE WILL STILL BE IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP NEXT SEASON, LEE ]

    Lees had a good month & will be missed but we have options. We can go like for like & put Fred in or go with Morison.

      @NICKOLA: Totally agree, this is a huge game and experience over youth is required, so get Morrison in, Fred is the future of MFC but not this game!

    Your right has to be Morison big game he owes us a match winning performance & possibly playing for a permanent move. Unless Ollie has already told otherwise. Easter. McDonald. & Jackson just don't cut it.

    Morison for me too.
    I think it will be better for the team if he plays from the start.
    His last ever game for Millwall so can see him banging at least one in.
    Wouldn't be surprised to see him get the winner.

        @Lincolnshire Lion:
        I personally dont want him next season either.
        I can say the same for McDonald, Easter and Jackson.
        I know that McDonald and Easter have contracts for next season but I would be happy for them to leave.
        I have been really disapointed with Jackson as I thought he would score more and be more of a threat.
        They all owe us really so let's hope that one or more of them can at least do what they are paid to do and score on Saturday.

            I would rather spend 17 grand a week elsewhere on someone younger and hungrier.
            I also as stated can see him scoring Saturday but I dont think Holloway rates him that much either because he doesn't start with him.

          @wall2wall: Whether we stay up or get relegated IH will have to sort out the strikeforce in the Summer. As you say Easter and McDonald have contracts for next year as well as Marquis!. With those three no matter how attractive football we play the lack of goals will still be a problem. If you look a Bournemouth for instance their front two alone have scored nearly 40 goals between them this season

            Yes dens, agreed,, our forwards are our weakest part of our squad in my opinion.
            Too many journeymen.
            We have paid out record wages this season to our strikeforce so the money is there once Morison and jackson leave and hopefully one or two more.
            Just need to get it right Saturday and then go shopping for strikers.

    Sure Ollie knows in his own mind who he will keep for next season, although much will depend on which league we will be playing in. Hopefully that will be the Championship and I'm sure it will be. It seems that Easter will be here regardless having signed for another year. But the main thing at the moment is to secure our Championship status.

      @seanmfc: Big Morison fan myself but he's not the player he was. Having said that, I'm sure Leeds won't have him back so we should sign him on a one year contract. He's a good man to have on the bench and if we stay up, I'm optimistic that we'll be signing some quality forwards so he's useful as a back-up. I don't rate Easter, McDonald or Jackson at this level. Get relegated keep them. otherwise time for fresh blood.

      @MFC Lion: Christ it's complicated now. If Brum do not win at Bolton we're safe, even if we lose. The result for us and Doncaster, will come down to goal difference, depending on what transpires. Let's just be 3-0 up at half time on Saturday. I can't stand much more of this.

      @MFC Lion: "Ridiculous". Let's see what it takes to get relegated...
      We draw:
      - Relegated if:
      - Doncaster win, and;
      - Birmingham win.

      We lose:
      - Relegated if:
      - Doncaster do not lose and;
      - Birmingham win.

      We win, we are safe. The best way. If not - and now it is simple - then it all comes down to Birmingham needing not to win to keep us safe. If fans are watching any other game that at The Den, keep checking Birmingham because they are the only team below us needing to win to get us down.

        My predictions-
        Millwall draw
        Blackpool draw
        Brum Lose
        Doncaster lose

    So in order for us to go down Doncaster need a point at least away to Leicester who want the 102 points and who are relaxed and are getting the trophy etc. We obviously would need to lose, Birmingham would need to beat Bolton as a point is not enough for them regardless of our result.

    Should be ok BUT we all know how we like to make it hard and nerve shredding.

    Surprised that people think Blackpool are already safe no one is mentioning them are you forgetting if we in , Doncaster win (unlikely ), Charlton win and birmingham win Blackpool go down also we shouldn't really right of birmingham they have the best away record in the bottom half of the table (9 away wins ) and have a -16 goal difference so we really need to win jus in case

    I don't agree that we are safe at all, Doncaster play Leicester who are up anyway and may not bother, it is not beyond the realms of fantasy for them to pull off a surprise win, likewise with Birmingham at Bolton who are mid-table and again may well slip up. So it is down to Millwall to win against our bock side who will do us no favours at all and would love to send us down. Nothing is decided yet, I am blacking out my home -no radio no tv no internet until after the games are finished. My nerves cannot stand it!

    We don't need any favours from anyone, we will win against Bournemouth and prove we are good enough to stay in the Championship.

      @boblion: Are they really giving Bournemouth the lower stand too? I don't remember them ever bringing more than several hundred at most to our place.

          @boblion: 2K is the top level. No way will they be given the bottom level, just in case we lose and go down, I can see the headlines already.

    Sitting in me chair in adelaide lookin at me photos of the den , great memories and wishing you guys the energy and emotion to get us over the line sat. One last push after a long season of ups n downs but the supporters have never waivered. When the boys are spent and the legs are gone it's you they,l look 2 . That's the time when the fanatical men and women of millwall will get it done !!!

    Surely something to report Aldo. 4 days away from one of the biggest games in Millwall's history.
    If not , how about some news regarding the situation with Hoyte. What the hell is going on there?
    All I know is that we are paying him a nice salary and I dont know much else. Any info would be appreciated.
    Cheers.

      @mfc1rob: if ticket sales demanded , would the club open those bays closest to the away end which usually appear to be closed or is that not an option? Or is it expected that the away end will be fairly full? It,d be great to squeeze Bourne into the centre area and pack the wall crowd right up close to make sure they feel nice and welcome!!!

    At my local club they p*** into sandwich bags and sling them into the opposition, " I know, I know" that is very unsportsmanlike but at least it's warm on a cold day !!!
