BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Tom Bradshaw has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury.

The Millwall striker – a club record signing from Barnsley at the end of August – missed today’s 4-3 defeat against Norwich City.

And Lions boss Neil Harris confirmed in his post-match press conference that Bradshaw sustained ligament damage in the 2-0 loss at Brentford. It was not until Sunday night that any problems were flagged.

“Tom Bradshaw has done his knee ligaments and will be out for the season,” said Harris. “That puts perspective into that [a defeat at Norwich].

“Tom is a big loss for us. We’ll work tirelessly with him to get him back in training and welcome him back  as soon as we can, hopefully pre-season.

“It is one of those crazy modern day injuries. He’d only been on a couple of minutes in the game, we did a debrief and he did the fitness exercise after. We didn’t know until Sunday that there might be a problem.

“A scan on Monday showed he had a ligament tear. He will have an operation on Tuesday. and then it is a long recovery after that.

“You could have knocked me over with a feather on Monday. Tom was convinced it was nothing and he’d be back in training on Thursday. The physio department had their concerns but Tom was convinced he would be on the training pitch on Thursday preparing to be involved today.”
