Lloyd Doyley to miss rest of the season due to knee surgery

Rotherham defender Lloyd Doyley will not play again this season after undergoing knee surgery.

The 34-year-old, whose short-term contract expires in the summer, could have pulled on the Millers shirt for the last time following an operation to repair knee ligament damage.

Doyley suffered the injury during the 2-1 win over Leeds at the start of the month, the last of the three appearances he has made for Neil Warnock's men.

Warnock said: "I am afraid Lloyd is going to miss the rest of the season. The bad news is that he is going to miss the rest of the season, the good news is that he is only going to miss three or four weeks. 

"He should be able to have a good summer and get ready for the season whatever it holds for him next year.

"His knee just bent slightly on impact and caused a crack, but the crack is right in the corner and the surgeon has been in and taken that corner out and tidied it up and he'll be as right as rain. 

"It's good news in that respect but we'll not see him again this season."

The Millers' only other injury concern ahead of the visit of Nottingham Forest on Saturday is influential midfielder Lee Frecklington.

Warnock thought that a calf injury would keep Frecklington out for two weeks but he trained on Friday and could be in contention.

"He is going to train and see how it goes and I have stressed to him that if he felt not bad that we can leave it until tomorrow," the boss added. 

"He hasn't pulled his calf, it's just stiff. We are not going to take any risks at this stage, we possibly might have done if we were three or four points adrift. 

"But we play it by ear and in the morning we will see. If it's a definite no we will know today, he will tell me, he is that kind of player. It will give someone an opportunity."
