Cambridge United skipper Ian Miller confirms that he suffered a serious injury during his side's Conference playoff final.

Cambridge United captain Ian Miller could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

The centre-back sustained the injury during the closing stages of this afternoon's Conference playoff final, which his side won 2-1, earning promotion back to the Football League after a nine-year absence.

Miller was stretchered off, but returned in a wheelchair to join in the celebrations with his teammates, where he told BT Sport: "I've totally ruptured my Achilles tendon, but I've got a winners medal."

Miller, 30, joined the U's following his release by Grimsby Town last summer.
