KENNY Jackett has confirmed that Andy Keogh will continue to play with a broken toe after fellow striker Darius Henderson suffered a minor injury setback.

But the Lions boss insists Keogh has taken it upon himself to carry on after picking up the injury in the win at Wolves last month.

Henderson had been expected to return for the trip to Ipswich Town on Saturday after a hamstring injury – but missed the 3-0 defeat after breaking down in training.

"Andy is playing through it," Jackett said. "He's definitely had some pain in the last two games against Charlton and Ipswich.

"But he's a determined lad and he thinks that, with a jab, he's okay. That's been the case in the last couple of games, which is typical of him.

"Darius felt his hamstring on Thursday, which is a frustration for us because he looked set to come back into the group.

"It was only what I would call a minor setback, it wasn't a major one. We shall see how long it takes him to get back."
