CHRIS Taylor's league debut for Millwall was marred by an ankle injury he sustained after coming on as a second-half substitute against Cardiff City.

The winger was given his first taste of Championship football against the Bluebirds but manager Kenny Jackett revealed the summer signing was undergoing treatment immediately after the match.

Taylor joins captain Paul Robinson, who missed the 2-0 defeat against the Welsh side because of a bruised ankle, on the Lions' short-term injury list.

"Taylor got fouled three out of the first four times he got the ball – without any bookings either," Jackett said.

"That stopped his flow, because he is a runner with the ball. It's early days for Chris but there's no reason why he shouldn't go on and have a good generic lexapro by camber season for us.

"He has an ankle injury and was having treatment after the game.

"Robinson still has a bad ankle from the Hull game. He may have a chance of playing against Brighton on Saturday, but if he doesn't make it he'll be okay for the weekend after. We'll see.

"We've missed him in terms of his organisational ability and leadership, there's no doubt about that. But we have options in defence and in defensive midfield.

"I won't rush him back because he's played very little football this season – he must be right when he comes back. Thankfully, it's not an ankle injury that will keep him out for too much longer."
