Physio Bobby brings us up-to-date

"The players have their third and final session, gym or pool-based, at 5pm. In between each session there are supervised stretching and ice baths which are compulsory, plus the staff are on hand to make sure the players are well hydrated.

"The first session starts on the pitches at 8am for running drills. They then have their next session at 10.30am. This is taken by the coaches and is the football session, which wraps up before lunch and the sun reaching its peak. "The players are half way through their training camp in Portugal and are currently doing three sessions a day," Bobby told

Lions physio Bobby Bacic brings us up-to-date on how the training is going, and explains why three of the group remained at home.

The temperatures in the UK may have cooled a little over the last couple of days, but Millwall's players have been working up a sweat with three sessions of training a day in the scorching heat at their pre-season camp in Portugal.
"So far everyone is finding it hard work but enjoyable as the facilities are first class.

"However, Carlos (Edwards), Paris (Cowan-Hall) and Jamie (Philpot) stayed at home.

"The planning with Carlos is to have his first match after four weeks of full training so he has trained with the youth team.

"Finally Jamie is progressing well after his knee operation and has already joined in a few training sessions with the youth team. He will look to join the main group on our return next week."

"Paris' previous injuries have all been due to collisions; twice in matches and once in full contact training. This one, however, was during a pure running session so he will be doing extra conditioning and strength work over the next few weeks before he rejoins the main group.

"Paris has picked up a small calf strain on the last day of running at the training ground, so the decision was made to leave him behind.
