Millwall strikers Tom Brighton and Ben May are set to be missing for the remainder of the season.
The pair have both been struggling due to ankle problems, with May (pictured) having not featured for The Lions for almost two months.
Brighton has since joined his fellow striker on the treatment table, and both players may have seen their seasons ended early by injury.
Millwall are also likely to be without defender Zak Whitbread for the rest of the campaign, leaving manager Willie Donachie to lament their losses.
"If you add in Zak Whitbread, who has also had a frustrating few months with a pelvic injury, the three of them are big, powerful players who would be in the first-team squad," Donachie told the club's official website.
"It is disappointing for them individually and also for us, because they are the type of players you need in this league."
Meanwhile, Chris Casement has finally completed his one-month loan move to Millwall.
The Ipswich Town defender agreed a switch last week before picking up an injury playing for Northern Ireland's Under 21s at the weekend.
However, the problem was not deemed serious and Casement has linked up with former Tractor Boys assistant Donachie at The Den.
