With the fall out continuing from the fact some associated with Derby County can’t accept a loss, physio Bobby Bacic has given an injury update.

Everybody knows the warbling that continues to come from the Midlands at the moment in terms going down softly, and time wasting, and all the things they want to talk about to try and ignore the fact they lost fair and square, Bacic has told the official site.

‘The Derby match was a busy one on the injury front. To start with the players at Millwall have always made my life very straightforward and easy on match days. They simply do not call me onto the pitch unless they need treatment. There is no time wasting advantage to be gained by me running on, as firstly the ref simply adds the injury time on and secondly, the team goes down to ten men for a period.’

Nothing like a dose of sense is there.

Defender Danny Shittu was sent for a scan last night following the knock he took to his calf, as the club are worried he may have done something to his achilles.

DJ Campbell has a small hamstring tear and is likely to be out for a game or so at least, and Scott Malone took a whack on the hip so he will be monitored.

It didn’t end there, Shane Lowry is expected to be fit simply because he’s ‘hard’ despite taking a stamp to his foot and having a knock on his knee, but he’ll be assessed in time nontheless.

They all partially join Jermaine Easter and Nicky Bailey in the treatment room, but Bailey this week has returned to outdoor straight line running so he’s making good progress.

Manager Ian Holloway has given an update on the injuries that I can see from this morning.

It’s confirmed that Shittu is out of our next game, and that his injury could well see him sidelined for the remainder of the month. Campbell could also be out for the next three weeks, and Malone and Lowry are likely to miss out next match at least.
