Millwall defender Carlos Edwards is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury.

The 35-year-old was stretchered off during Saturday's 0-0 draw against Championship leaders Nottingham Forest.

Lions physio Bobby Bacic said: "A scan has shown that he has significant knee ligament disruption, involving the cruciate and lateral ligaments.

"He has also sustained a rupture to the hamstring muscle. Carlos will be seeing a specialist with a view to surgery."

Edwards joined Millwall from Ipswich on a free transfer in the summer following a successful loan spell at The Den last season.

In total, the right-back has scored one goal in 16 appearances for the club.
