Millwall suffer Tyson blow

Nathan Tyson has suffered an injury blow just days after moving to Millwall.

The striker last week joined the Lions on loan from Derby and made his debut as a half-time substitute in Saturday's 2-0 defeat by Burnley.

But he picked up an ankle ligament injury towards the end of the match and is to have a scan to determine the extent of the damage.

Whatever the result of the scan, Tyson will be a major doubt for Friday night's FA Cup visit of Aston Villa.

Meanwhile, Lions skipper Paul Robinson is set to fly out to Philadelphia in a bid to solve the injury problems which have plagued him almost all season.

The centre-half, whose last appearance was in late September, will visit a surgeon who specialises in complex groin problems.
