Watford midfielder Stephen McGinn is set for a lengthy lay-off after damaging knee ligaments.The 22-year-old will struggle to feature again this season following a 37th-minute collision in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Doncaster. [LNB]The young Scot was sidelined for three weeks in December after fracturing his cheek bone in a 3-1 win over QPR. [LNB]He has been influential for Watford this term and was central to their early season form in the Championship. [LNB]Since joining from St Mirren in January last year McGinn has made 42 appearances for the Hornets, scoring twice. [LNB]After the draw with Doncaster at the weekend boss Malky Mackay stated he would probably have to bring in a loan signing to help out his squad. [LNB]Mackay is already without defender Lloyd Doyley, while Andreas Weimann and Danny Drinkwater are both looking to shrug off knocks ahead of Saturday's visit of Millwall. [LNB]Captain John Eustace will miss the clash as he serves a one-match suspension.
