Millwall goalkeeper Ben Amos ruled out for at least six weeks with broken finger

Ben Amos is set to be out for at least six weeks with a hand injury.

The on-loan Bolton stopper has a floating piece of bone in one of his fingers.

Amos sat out Millwall’s FA Cup win over Hull City and saw a specialist earlier this week.

Lions chief Neil Harris said: “Ben is going to be in a splint for at least six weeks and he’ll be reviewed in a week to 10 days time to see how it’s healing.

“Hopefully there is no operation needed on the broken finger but it is looking at six to eight weeks.”

Millwall have just recalled Tom King from his loan at AFC Wimbledon. David Martin was on the bench for last weekend’s tie.

Harris said: “David is a fantastic pro, top lad and really good goalkeeper. He has been unfortunate in many ways not to be starting games in the last 12 months.

“Before this week both David and Tom were probably thinking about trying to get away and find regular football. Now they’ll be thinking they can force their way into the team.”
