Duo miss out

6 February 2014

No Burnley date for Fordey and Bailey

Lions boss Ian Holloway admitted that there will be no return to the squad for either Nicky Bailey or David Forde as Millwall make the trip to high-flying Burnley on Saturday.

Fordey suffered a thigh injury in the 1-0 win against Ipswich at The Den on 18th January and has missed the subsequent two matches.

Bailey was rested for last Saturday's Den defeat to Reading, but the manager had been hopeful that both would be ready for inclusion in the squad this weekend.

"Fordey is 90% there now," explained Ollie, "but he's still feeling a slight niggle so he won't make it. Nicky had been working very hard on his fitness but his back has gone into spasm which is very painful and we're just trying to get that sorted out now."
