Heart broken as Millwall star sustain another fresh injury


Millwall have been dealt another injury blow with Ryan Leonard having cracked a bone in his knee, as per Richard Cawley.

Millwall go up against Preston North End in the Championship this weekend.

After a patchy performance that has left the Lions in 15th place in the standings, Gary Rowett’s team is eager to get their campaign off to a strong start.

In addition, Rowett has already ruled out Kevin Nisbet and Duncan Watmore for the match against Preston due to injuries to Ryan Longman, Matija Sarkic, and Shaun Hutchinson.



After Cawley revealed on X this morning that Leonard, 31, is “set to be missing for a short period of time with a cracked bone in his knee,” it appears like Leonard will miss the Preston game as well as possibly a few more games after that.

In addition, Rowett discussed Leonard’s injuries with South London Press, saying:

“His knee has a fractured bone. In our opinion, he did it to hurt Plymouth. Despite an incident in which he was knocked out against Plymouth, he played the entire game.

The next day, he was sore. It appears he will need to take a short nap before determining its location. There are a few weeks off. That’s how people generally feel about it. Although not ideal, it might

At Millwall, Leonard
So far this season, Leonard has participated in all but one of Millwall’s 11 Championship games. The veteran Millwall player is in his sixth year with the team, and a common theme throughout his tenure at The Den has been injuries.

This latest setback is undoubtedly that, considering he had been playing frequently and performing well this season. Fortunately, though, it doesn’t appear to be as terrible as it could have been or as serious as it sounds.

This weekend will be yet another difficult assignment for Millwall. However, with Preston struggling, the Lions may have an opportunity to score some points.
