Liam Feeney: Winger has made two substitute appearances for Millwall this season
Championship side Millwall have suffered an injury blow with winger Liam Feeney ruled out for eight weeks.
Feeney, 25, injured his ankle during Saturday's 3-1 win against Middlesbrough at the Den.
He suffered damaged ligaments after replacing James Henry as a 83rd-minute substitute in the Lions' first home win of the new campaign.
"Liam suffered significant ankle ligament damage and he will be out for a minimum of eight weeks," said Lions physio Bobby Bacic.
But there was better injury news for boss Kenny Jackett as skipper Paul Robinson and midfielder Tamika Mkandawire made their much-anticipated returns this week.
Mkandawire has been sidelined for almost a year with a knee injury, but played 90 minutes for Millwall's Under-21 Development side against Barnet on Tuesday.
"I'm glad to come through unscathed," he told the club's official website.
"The plan was to play 60 minutes and take it from there, but I played the full game and I'm glad I did. It's a massive step for me."
Defender Robinson, yet to feature this season after a hernia operation, also completed 90 minutes in the 3-1 win.
