EXCLUSIVE Millwall manager has positive injury update – as he explains why striker deal was not a priority before transfer deadline passed

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Connor Mahoney’s latest quad injury setback has been described as “mild” by Millwall manager Gary Rowett.

The 23-year-old winger, left, has not played a senior game since November 7 and came off with a fresh issue in a development match against Charlton this week.

Mahoney’s return was set to fill the gap left by Tottenham recalling Troy Parrott.

“It looks quite mild and we’re only looking at a week to 10 days,” said Rowett. “It’s a little bit of a setback and disappointing.

“Connor was one of the reasons why we didn’t fight the Troy one too much. We felt Connor coming back certainly adds a different type of creativity. We’ve got quite a lot of forwards up there who do specific jobs, it is sometimes that unpredictability in games late on that has been hard to find with the options we have got.

“Connor can give us something different – but he has to be on the pitch do that. It is something we need to rectify moving forwards.”
