Millwall have suffered a blow after learning striker John Marquis has been ruled out until the new year with a groin injury.

Marquis: Yet to feature this season

The 20-year-old youth-team graduate, who has yet to make an appearance for the Lions this term, is to visit a specialist to determine the extent of the problem.

Physio Bobby Bacic told the club website: "John has suffered a cruel blow and has significantly disrupted a groin muscle on his right side.

"He previously had surgery on his left side but this is a totally different type of injury and we will see a specialist over the coming days to discuss John's options.

"However, he will not be available for selection this year."
