WINGER James Henry is expected to be out of action for at least a fortnight after damaging knee ligaments in Millwall's goalless pre-season draw with Shelbourne.

Henry had to be substituted shortly before half-time at Tolka Park and joins captain Paul Robinson, striker Darius Henderson and midfielders Liam Trotter and Tamika Mkandawire on the club's short-term injury list.

However, Therry Racon made his long-awaited return from an ankle problem and boss Kenny Jackett was pleased with the workout his side were given.

"We didn't finish our chances in the second half but the main thing was to give everyone a run-out," he told the club's official site.

"James has twisted knee ligaments and may be out of action for up to a fortnight. Therry played his first 45 minutes in a Millwall shirt in over a year and came through OK.

"It was also important to see how the three new lads, Taylor, Malone and Osborne are fitting in and to measure the progress of the young pro's, Goodman, Sammoutis, Wilkinson and O'Brien, who will all benefit from training and playing with the seniors out here."
