Millwall captain Robinson set to miss Palace derby

PAUL Robinson says he is unlikely to recover from a groin injury in time to face Crystal Palace after the international break.

Robinson is due to see a specialist in London this week to determine the extent of the problem, which has ruled him out of the Lions' last three matches.

The Millwall captain spent pre-season recovering from a double hernia operation and then, on his comeback against Hull City last month, suffered a bruised ankle.

But he was passed fit to return against Burnley two weeks ago – only to be forced off at half-time with a groin strain.

"The two-week break is handy from my point of view in that I won't miss any games as I work my way back to fitness again," he said.

"But it looks like I will be out longer than a fortnight.

"I'm so desperate to be out there helping the lads move up the table, and I'm now having to focus on doing everything I can to get back fully fit and firing as quickly as possible without risking any further breakdowns."
