Millwall boss provides Jiri Skalak update ahead of London derby against QPR

JIRI Skalak will miss Millwall’s London derby against Queens Park Rangers at The Den on Saturday.

Skalak has been out with a foot injury he sustained blocking a shot in the 4-0 defeat to Fulham last month.

Lions boss Neil Harris wasn’t putting a timescale on his return when asked about the Czech International winger this week.

“He’s back on the training pitch, but in a controlled manner,” Harris said. “He’s getting there. He’s had an injection and it’s helped the healing process.

“I feel really sorry for him, he’s desperate to be back involved and it’s just frustrating. It was a freak, bizarre incident and he’s got to be patient with it.

“We’ll get him there but at the moment it’s just about building him up.”
