Jackett pleased to hear Henry's injury not as bad as first feared
MILLWALL manager Kenny Jackett has welcomed the news winger James Henry could play again this season.
Henry was ruled out for the remainder of the campaign after sustaining knee ligament damage in the 1-0 defeat at Leeds United on March 2.
However, upon further examination it emerged the initial diagnosis was not as serious as first feared and Jackett confirmed to News Shopper today Henry might be back within a month.
The Lions boss said: “The scan has revealed it is not quite as bad and he will be out for another three to four weeks, which admittedly does leave it quite tight for this season.
“However, he may play again this season and that is good news.
“Whether he plays again or not, we just want to make sure that knee has a minimal amount of damage.
“But if he could make the last couple of weeks of the season then that would be fantastic.”
