Millwall skipper Paul Robinson has vowed not to rush his comeback from injury.

The defender, who had hernia surgery over the summer, has managed just three appearances this season and is currently sidelined by a pelvic injury.

Robinson admits he is unlikely to be fit for the derby trip to Crystal Palace after the international break.

"The two-week break is handy from my point of view in that I won't miss any games as I work my way back to fitness again," he said.

"It looks like I will be out longer than a fortnight.

"I'm so desperate to be out there helping the lads move up the table, and I'm now having to focus on doing everything I can to get back fully fit and firing as quickly as possible without risking any further breakdowns."
