Lamb injury blow for Millwall Lionesses

3 October 2014

Midfielder ruled out for the season



Having already been without the services of both Dionne Lennon and Emma Whitter for most of the campaign Lamb sustained injury following a heavy challenge late in the first-half of Wednesday night's game against Reading.

Millwall Lionesses have been dealt another huge injury blow with confirmation that midfielder Stevie Lamb could be ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
After lengthy treatment Stevie was helped from the pitch by head physio Jonjo Hurley and subsequently taken to hospital. Although she has
 not suffered a fracture, initial tests indicated that she may have sustained a rupture to her Medial Collateral Ligament and possible damage to the Posterior Cruciate Ligament.

Striker Cherelle Albert, on target during the midweek 4-1 defeat by Reading, is optimistic that her team can enjoy a change of fortune and record a welcome win this weekend.

Millwall Lionesses are back in action this Sunday when they host Yeovil Town at The Den - and it will be coach Dan Mlinar's second game in charge following ALberto Kurti's decision to leave the club last weekend.

Stevie has been referred to a knee surgeon for further diagnosis and will require an MRI scan to ascertain the full extent of the injury although it seems certain that she will be out of action for the remainder of the season.


"Against Reading the luck went their way and a 2-2 scoreline would have been a fairer reflection of the game," she said. "I don't think recent results have reflected the way that we have played, which is a shame because we deserve to have more points on the table."
 
The game saw coach Mlinar in the dug out for the first time this season and Cherrelle was impressed with the new man's contribution, adding: "Dan's been great. He brought in a lot of tactical info and a lot of organisation before the game.
"He worked on individuals, one on ones and reiterated our roles and responsibilities on the pitch, and I think everyone was a bit more pumped up. We felt we had a point to prove and wanted to get some points on the board. It didn't go our way but it was another great team performance and I can't fault the girls at all.”
