Richard Chaplow: Sidelined with an ankle injury

Chaplow arrived at The Den almost a month ago from Southampton on a deal until the end of the season.

His absence will come as a major setback for Kenny Jackett's team as they prepare for the FA Cup semi-final with Wigan this weekend.

A brief statement from Millwall read: "Scan results have confirmed that midfielder Richard Chaplow will miss the remainder of the season."

Chaplow verified his position on a social network site, where he said: "Bad news regarding the ankle.

"Six to eight weeks I've been told. I would like to thank Millwall FC for the opportunity. Sorry it ended with injury."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
