‘He needs to be in that starting XI’ – 27-year-old pushing for Millwall recall: The verdict



Millwall currently find themselves in the division’s bottom three after 13 Championship matches.

After a run of two wins in that time, the Lions are on 10 points and slumped to a seventh defeat of the season last time out against Reading.

Neil Harris’ men dominated, but thanks to a lack of composure in front of goal, the Lions found themselves on the end of a 3-1 reverse.

With results not forthcoming and inconsistent form rife in the side, Harris is still searching for a winning formula and admitted he has run out of things to say. 

Murray Wallace scored Millwall’s only goal of the game, and between him and Byron Webster, they have deputised at centre-half for Shaun Hutchinson, who has missed the last eight weeks through injury.

Back and fit again, the 27-year-old vice-captain was named on the bench in the weekend’s loss.

Wigan Athletic visit The Den on Tuesday evening, with Harris possibly thinking about changes to get the Lions back on the winning track, with the defender a possible option to come back into the side.

With Harris still searching for the right formula, we asked our group of FLW writers if they felt Hutchinson should start for Millwall tomorrow night…

Jacob Potter

Absolutely, he should return to the side.

He appeared in every single league game last season for Millwall and with Jake Cooper and Murray Wallace struggling against Reading on Saturday, it could be time for the defender to return to the side.

Louie Chandler


Something needs shaking up in that Millwall defence, which has been uncharacteristically leaky this season.

There would be no harm at all in starting him.

Chris Gallagher

Yes, the current defence are not doing enough.

Hutchinson was a key player last season and formed a strong partnership with Jake Cooper in what was a successful campaign.

Neil Harris should go back to that and hope they can rediscover that form instantly as things are not going well now.

Alfie Burns


Hutchinson is a big influence in this Millwall side, and if he’s ready for 90 minutes, he needs to be in that starting XI.

The sooner he’s up to speed, the better for the Lions.
