Millwall complete Hutchison deal

Hutchison was searching for a new club over the summer
Millwall have signed Scotland international midfielder Don Hutchison on a six-month deal. The 34-year-old, who has been released by West Ham, had been on trial with the Lions during pre-season, and impressed new manager Colin Lee. "We have decided to give Don a chance - he has not played for a while and has a lot to prove," Lee explained. Lee has also revealed that he hopes to bring in former Southampton boss Dave Merrington as his assistant. He is also seeking an experienced goalkeeper to provide back-up for Andy Marshall.

OK lets start with the first match tomorrow

Team news ahead of Sunday's Championship match.

Leeds v Millwall

Leeds goalkeeper Neil Sullivan may not be fit to play after shoulder surgery and Ian Bennett could start in goal. Striker Rob Hulse is sidelined along with midfielder Steve Stone, who has an Achilles injury. New Millwall signing Don Hutchison is expected to make his debut in midfield while left-back Jamie Vincent is also expected to make his bow for the club. But manager Colin Lee will be without David Livermore who is ruled out with a thigh injury.

Tomorrow will be my first chance to watch Millwall this season so i will see how they do :)

Did you watch the game? If you did how did Jamie Vincent get on?

I hope he does alright for you, so you will sign him permanently :)

I thought you would struggle before the season started, and from the way you've started I can't see anything diferent. Colin Lee has got a job on to try and turn your fortunes around.
