CROCKED LIONS ACE TOM: I’LL RETURN STRONGER
MILLWALL striker Tom Bradshaw is expected to miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on a knee ligament injury.
The 26-year-old returned to the Championship in August, joining the Lions on loan from Barnsley in a deal which will become permanent for a reported £1m in January.
Bradshaw made ten appearances for Millwall, before damaging ligaments late on in the 2-0 defeat to Brentford two weeks ago.
The Wales international had a planned operation at Cromwell Hospital on Tuesday and will now undergo an extensive rehabilitation programme with Millwall’s fitness and sports science staff.
Boss Neil Harris said: “He’s suffered a knee ligament injury and his season will be over.
“We wish him all the best and look forward to working with him over the next period of time, through to pre-season, to get him back fit and, fundamentally, looking to have him back fit for pre-season to be a big part for us next year.”
Bradshaw vowed to return stronger in a series of images posted on Instagram.
He said: “It’s a tough one too get my head round, especially as it’s happened so early into my Millwall career.
“I only hope that the fans, who have been brilliant with me since signing, can be patient and I promise I’ll be back fitter and stronger than ever.”
