Danny Shittu features in Saturday's matchday programme

Saturday sees Huddersfield Town visit The Den for the very first time since the memorable Play-Off Semi-Final second leg back in 2010.
The Lions will be looking to bounce back from the disappointment of drawing Tuesday's game with Birmingham City after racing into an early 3-0 lead.
In our latest edition of the matchday programme, we speak at length with stand-in skipper Danny Shittu, who has impressed hugely since returning to the club in the summer as a free agent.
The defender reflects on his and the team's performances to date, and what it meant to him to be named captain in Paul Robinson's injury absence.
"When Kenny told me, I was surprised. At that point I was just getting back into the team and still working on my game. But still, to be told I'd be captain was a true honour. To have a manager who trusts you enough to appoint you to lead the team means so much to me."
Danny also praises on-loan defender Mark Beevers, who has partnered him in recent weeks and signed for the club little more than 24 hours before the recent victory over Bolton Wanderers.
"Everybody knows that when it comes to playing at centre-back, you have to have a good relationship with your partner. It is always difficult to play with somebody that you don't know that well but I think it's testament to Mark's ability that he came in and performed well instantly."
Also in the programme, Jack Smith tackles your questions in our latest Facebook Q&A. The versatile defender reveals who the three Championship players he'd like to play most with are, whether he'd rather mark Messi or Ronaldo and who the best player he's ever played with is.
Saturday's game marks our annual Kick It Out match at The Den and we hear from Chairman John Berylson and Kick It Out Chairman Lord Herman Ouseley who look at the superb work the club have done in recent years in combating discrimination in the game we all love.
