Millwall midfielder Bailey hit by another injury setback

NICKY Bailey's return from injury has been delayed after the midfielder suffered another setback in training.

Bailey has been limited to just two appearances for the Lions this campaign.

He tore his calf in the final pre-season friendly of the summer against Real Mallorca and then suffered a similar injury on his only start against Huddersfield.

The 30-year-old had been pencilled in for a comeback later this month but has been forced to put his rehab on hold.

Physio Bobby Bacic told the club's official site: "Nicky is having the most wretched luck at present.

"Although we do not predict this injury to keep him away from training for long he will need to play in the U21s before he can be considered for first team selection."

      Make that his career at Millwall is finished.

      God I hope he's in the last year of his contract.

    He's definitely not cut out to be a footballer, he's as much use to us as a chocolate teapot. Middlesborough must have a good laugh when they saddled us with can't play won't play (Dustbin Hoyte and sicknote) what a win double.

      @Sealion: Don't forget McDonald came from Middlesborough too - big wages, but hardly the most prolific goalscorer in return.

    Is there any chance we could soon buy a player that is NOT injury prone ?

    A proffesional footballer should not be overweight for the whole 2 years of his contract.
    Carrying extra pounds is surely going to increase your chances of injury and take you longer to get over one.
    No excuse for it.
    Same as Hoyte, it should be a breech of contract and not get paid the 100 per cent wage.
    Roll on next season.

    Terminate his contract now, let's face it it's unlikely we'll see him in a Millwall shirt again.

    i like bailey but let's be honest here, it's very unlikely we'll see him again. like so many he's injury prone and to old. i think we should off load him, hoyte, wright, ranejie, fuller, easter and by-sexual permanently off the books! and go for a decent r.b a class c.b a pace setting cm and a young quality striker to partner gregory.

    To think that he was being nominated by some of us as the possible captain for this season during the Summer!

    Chaplow had his wisdom teeth removed.. so not quite as bad as we suspected..
    Fuller had a minor knee problem..
    But both were back to full training...

    Short memories from a lot of people AGAIN. Yes he's injury prone but we looked a better side when he was in midfield last season. He organises people, can pass and tackle. We've sure looked a much better side without him ain't we!

      @82wall: yep, when fit he was a good player for us, but we just haven't seen enough of him this season and I worry about his fitness and energy levels after turning 31.

      Yes he's fantastic for the 10% of games he's actually available to play!

      He can re sign on a pay as you play deal, be interesting to see how many injuries he suffers from on that kind of contract.

    He was my shout for Captain.
    Just as well it wasn't my decision.
    No doubt at all though that we were a better team with him playing.
    Just wish he would of eaten a lot less.

    I blame holloway because he knew he were'nt fully recovered yet he chuck him on in the 2nd half against fulham..not a surprise he made the injury worse..then 3 days before the huddersfield game he was declared fit(just like gregory).only gregory was rested for that game so should of bailey.but no .he threw him in.not only did he give a pen away he made the injury 10 times worse..idiot

    Funny how a lot of players always seem to get injured, and we do seem to have lots of them and yet there's someone like DUNNEY , much maligned on here but who never seems to be injured. He's 31 now so getting on a bit in football terms but is obviously very fit and never a pound over weight,he is a tough ombré it would seem both mentally and physically . Now I know a lot of you who don't rate him will write stuff such as " wish he did get injuries " etc etc etc bla bla bla, so I've done that for you,we know all that, just saying ,he's played here for years under tons of different managers with all their different methods yet is always fit and ready when called upon for whatever they want him to do. We don't have many that are always available for work but WOOLFORD seems to be another who never seems to have much wrong with him. These two seem as tough as ol boots ,while a lot of the others seem very brittle, is a lot of it in the mind??

    Same old thing past his best when he came to us and injury prone but that's Wall take the old ones get through best we can ,we need to build not scrape through another season
    Vision cut the wage bill on over 30s get a decent striker and potential younger players better still give some of the promising younger players more games instead of watching from the sidelines
    Could go on and on but will it ever happen ????????

    there are three prominent article on the millwall website at the moment,one about bailey,one about chaplow and one about our youngster's,so can news at den take a leaf out of the late brian clough's book,that is if you are injured i don't want to see or hear you.
    Please can we have more info about the youngster's and put the sick note's aside untill they are fit enough to play as i am getting very depressed.

    Decent bloke but obviously injury prone. A real shame, if fit he could have been our engine room for several seasons. I think the anoraks got the best out of him. Roll on Saturday NOLU

        @scottwall: short term deal till January 2015, our deal really must have been awful unless Blackpool have committed to extending in the January transfer window.

    Shame we couldn't sign chris eagles, real class player,the sort that turns a game in your favour running and going past people, superb crosser too, just the sort of player we don't have. Players like that don't come cheap,why should they. I know people on here think he's a " p****" etc, that's their opinion and fair enough. I think we will see what we are missing when he starts playing for Blackpool . Just my opinion .
