Millwall fear striker Tom Bradshaw’s season is over – as attacking options set to be depleted for run in

Millwall head coach Neil Harris fears that Tom Bradshaw’s season could be over.

The Wales international missed today’s 1-0 win over Watford.

And Harris confirmed afterwards that it will be a major bonus if Bradshaw is able to play any more part in their Championship survival battle.

“I’m not going to confirm at the moment because he is seeing a specialist on Monday,” said Harris. “But I’d be really, really pleased if we see him again this season.

“It is an Achilles injury. Which is a fatigue injury, so it’s been happening over a period of time. It just went in training on Tuesday unfortunately.”

Millwall are already without Scottish striker Kevin Nisbet (knee). The summer signing from Hibernian is unlikely to return before the campaign is completed.

It leaves Michael Obafemi as their only out and out frontman.

“I’m trying to help Michael because he has not been fit for a period of time,” said Harris. “We have one recognised striker – but I can’t control that.

“We have got no recruitment opportunities now. I can only go with what we’ve got. I’ve got to find a way to do it. Can Michael play every minute of every game? Of course he can’t. We have to be respectful to his injury record as well.

“People have to understand that and they will, off the back of these words now and my explanation. We asked Ryan Longman to play up front today. He’s not a natural centre-forward but he has played it before. Duncan Watmore has played it before. Zian Flemming can play as a nine, but a different nine. We’ll have to find ways and be creative. That’s my job.

“But I’ll say it to the fanbase: ‘Whoever plays up there – please support them’. Michael is a top, top player – a top goalscorer, I’ve seen that already in training. It’s just getting him up to speed. He did 45 the other day and I took him off, rightly so, and he has done 70 today. We have to protect him over a period of time as well.

“I’m a huge fan of Michael Obafemi.”
