Danny lends a helping hand

14 October 2013

Lions defender comes to the rescue

Today's Epping Forest Guardian newspaper explains how, even though Millwall didn't have a game at the weekend, defender Danny Shittu had a helping hand as former Lion Kevin Lisbie struck the winner for Leyton Orient against MK Dons:

Millwall defender Danny Shittu played a key role in Leyton Orient's win over MK Dons on Saturday.

The former Watford and QPR player lent a piece of medical equipment which helped Kevin Lisbie recover in time from his dead leg. 

The O's striker grabbed the second-half winner and manager Russell Slade believes the use of the equipment made all the difference.

Slade said: "I asked my friend Tim Breaker at Millwall who said their football club had one but we couldn't get that. But we knew Danny Shittu had a personal one so on Wednesday our youth team physio Joe Sharp said it could make a 30 or 40 per cent difference if we can get it on Lisbie's leg for 12 hours."

He added: "Joe went all the way to meet Danny so we could get it to Lis's house on Wednesday night and I think that made all the difference.

It's called Game Ready where you've got a compression on all the time. The piece of equipment is about £4,000. It is hi tech science and it helped so could have been the difference between Lis starting or not starting.

We did everything we could to get one into the football club. As a result I think we're going to rent one for a month!"
