Duo in Lions fitness race
Millwall duo Tamika Mkandawire and Shaun Batt are hoping to be fit in time for the new season.
Midfielder Mkandawire missed most of last term with a knee problem which required two operations, while striker Batt has sat out the best part of two seasons following a cruciate injury. But both players have been working on their fitness throughout the summer in a bid to be ready for the new campaign, which kicks off on August 18 with a visit from Blackpool. Batt told the club website: "Tam and I are putting in that extra bit of work at this stage because we have played so little football in recent months. "Hopefully the injuries are behind us now, and I'd love to face my old club Peterborough in the second week of the season if all goes well between now and then."
