Midfielder Gary Mills' impressive home debut for King's Lynn Town was cut short last night after he was on the receiving end of a crunching challenge.
The Linnets loanee looked a class act on his first start for the club as Lynn took a deserved 1-0 lead against Grantham Town through George Thomson's 15th-minute finish. But Mills' evening finished just 20 minutes later when he hobbled off following Greg Smith's late tackle.
Lynn boss Gary Setchell said: 'We don't know how serious his injury is yet. He had a great start. He was pulling the strings for us like I expected him to. He was key, spraying the ball about, and that's what he'll do.
'He's probably looking at two to three weeks, hopefully, nothing longer. And it was a loss to us. But he wouldn't have helped us defend the set piece (for their equaliser) properly. The lad (who fouled Mills) is a big lump and physical and Millsy had the unwanted task of standing on his toes and he came through the back of him. I don't think it was the impact, it was the way Gary landed, and he's really disappointed. For the time he was on people got a glimpse of what type of player he's going to be for us.'
The 32-year-old, on a three-month deal from Boston United, missed much of last season while at Lincoln City with a serious knee injury. In his absence, the Gingerbreads equalised through Jason Lee's own goal in the second half.
