Sid sidelined for up to two months

But defender avoids surgery on fractured metatarsal

Millwall physio Bobby Bacic has this afternoon confirmed that defender Sid Nelson will be sidelined for up to two months with a fractured metatarsal.

The good news for the 18-year-old, however, is that he will not require surgery on the injury sustained playing in a game at Billericay last Saturday.

"Sid saw a specialist today and will remain in a protective boot for the meantime," Bobby told

"The better news for Sid is that the fracture is not a full metatarsal fracture, so there will be no operation required. 

"Realistically we are pencilling in a return to action within two months. However, he will need to be re-assessed and re-scanned on a regular basis to monitor his progress and recovery."
