Injury Report

10 March 2014

"The players simply do not call me onto the pitch unless they need treatment."

Lions physio Bobby Bacic had a busy afternoon on Saturday as he was called into action on numerous occasions in a bruising encounter at Derby County.

And despite an accusatory finger being pointed at The Lions by some sections of the home fans for 'time-wasting', Bobby refuted those claims.

He said: "The Derby match was a busy one on the injury front. To start with the players at Millwall have always made my life very straightforward and easy on match days. They simply do not call me onto the pitch unless they need treatment.

"There is no time wasting advantage to be gained by me running on, as firstly the ref simply adds the injury-time on and secondly, the team goes down to 10 men for a period as the injured player has to leave the pitch before being allowed to return.

"In terms of the injuries sustained at the weekend, we will send Danny Shittu for a scan this evening as we are worried about his lower calf and achilles.

"DJ Campbell has a small hamstring tear. Scott Malone took a bump to his hip bone and will be monitored. 

"Lastly Shane Lowry got his foot heavily stamped on and had his knee rocked by another challenge, however he is a robust type who rarely misses games through injury.

"Prior to the Derby match we only had Jermaine Easter (thigh strain) and Nicky Bailey (back) in the treatment room. To at least finish on a brighter note, Nicky is making good progress and now doing light outdoor straight line rehab."
