Millwall head coach Joe Edwards is not expecting Casper De Norre to be available before the Christmas period – describing his injury as “unusual”.
The Belgian midfielder missed today’s 1-1 draw against Sunderland at The Den.
“Casper’s injury is not a great one,” said Edwards. “I could see that he didn’t look comfortable in the game at Ipswich. He didn’t ask to come off but I didn’t think he was moving well – so I brought him off.
“He came in Thursday and Friday but it didn’t get any better. He had a scan and there is an injury there that we definitely won’t see Casper this side of Christmas, which is disappointing.
“It’s quite an unusual injury. It’s a lower calf injury that has crept into the Achilles as well. We are getting advice from a specialist to get a better idea of the timeframe. But certainly we won’t see Casper this side of Christmas, which for him is a blow and for me because he is one player, particularly in my first couple of weeks that I really liked the look of what he could offer us in that midfield.
“But that is how it goes – it gives opportunities to other players.”
