Millwall captain Paul Robinson hopes to be back in action by the end of March after having surgery on the broken metatarsal he suffered in Saturday's game against Scunthorpe United.
The 27-year-old defender broke the bone in a tackle during Saturday's 2-1 defeat to The Iron, but is pleased with the way the operation went.
Robinson told the Lions' official website: "I was very fortunate with the treatment that I got.
"When I came off at half-time I thought that my foot was just badly bruised, but when I took my boot off and the physio pressed it I virtually shot off the treatment table.
"I think he already knew it was a break and immediately sent me for an X-ray. I had the operation on Monday and for the next couple of weeks now I'm going to be in plaster.
"It's very frustrating, but I've set my sights on being back in about eight weeks."
