Millwall defender Cummings to miss the rest of the season

26-year-old suffers injury blow

Neil Harris has confirmed that Millwall right-back Shaun Cummings will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

The defender has made 20 appearances for The Lions this term but hasn't featured since the win away to Oxford United in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Area Final second leg.

"Shaun has had a knee problem," Harris told millwallfc.co.uk.

"It is a cartilage issue which has been bothering him and causing discomfort during training and matches.

"With the help of Bobby Bacic we have managed to settle it down and get Shaun out on the pitch as often as possible. But he went to see a specialist a couple of weeks ago because there were some calf and hamstring problems and we were worried they were coming because of the knee injury.

"The specialist has advised that there has to be a long rest period potentially coupled with an operation. Shaun was going to miss the rest of the season anyway so surgery is the best course of action for him at this point. It makes sense to do it now so that he can be ready to come back for the new campaign in August."

Ed Upson, who limped off during last week's game against Scunthorpe United, has a mild hamstring strain.
