Millwall striker O'Brien suffers ruptured ankle ligaments

20 July 2015

Young forward Aiden to miss all of August

Scan results have confirmed that as expected Millwall striker Aiden O'Brien ruptured his ankle ligaments during Saturday's 1-1 pre-season friendly draw with AFC Wimbledon.

The 21-year-old was stretchered off after 13 minutes having sustained the injury during a tackle and will definitely miss all of the club's fixtures in August.

O'Brien will remain in a protective boot for the short-term and will see a consultant once swelling has decreased at the end of this week.

"At this stage of the season it is a blow to lose Aiden for at least six weeks," Lions boss Neil Harris told

"We saw at the end of last season that Aiden is a player who is beginning to realise his huge potential.

"Naturally it is very disappointing not just for me but also for the boy himself. We hope it is just a minor set-back for Aiden and he can come back fitter and stronger."

In other injury news, Paris Cowan-Hall returned to training on Monday.
