QPR boss Redknapp hit in the face by stray ball at The Den

STEVE Lomas described an incident in which QPR manager Harry Redknapp was hit in the face by a ball thrown by a steward at The Den as an "accident".

Redknapp was caught in the crossfire when a steward standing next to the visitors' dugout attempted to return a loose ball to Paul Robinson, who was waiting to take a throw in.

First-team coach Joe Jordan had previously been struck by a stray ball chucked from the crowd as Lions fans tried to get play restarted after a clearance into the Barry Kitchener Stand.

But Lomas said: "I think it was just two genuine accidents. One of the balls that was thrown from the crowd hit Joe and it cut him a little bit, but I don't think there was any malice in it and Harry knew that as well.

"The crowd were just trying to get the ball back into play quickly so there was nothing in it."

When play resumed, substitute Jermaine Easter scored almost immediately to earn Millwall a point in a pulsating 2-2 draw.

Redknapp said: "I'll be honest, I didn't see the goal. Someone threw the ball, it hit Joe and he cut his face on his glasses. We were looking around to see who threw the ball and suddenly it's in the back of our net."

QPR assistant Kevin Bond added: "I saw a ball come over but I think it was just an accident – I don't really know what happened. Joe [Jordan] got one, and then Harry got one."

      @jim1222: Harry has good things to say about everything and everybody its all spiel and the man is a master bullshitter, He has the press eating out of hands because he feeds them stories( normally about who he would like to sign) and the press put it on there back pages. He signs players and gets a cut for doing so and then sells them on and again gets another cut. he has bought and sold crouch and krancaer a good few times(more money for good old Harry) He has financially ruined 3 clubs. He has no loyalty what so ever and will jump ship to who ever pays him the most. How doe's he support football when all he has ever done is take from the game? Ps. Some of us Prats have put plenty into Millwall and will continue as will our children and grandchildren.

    At 1-2 down I wasn't to unhappy as we had shown a lot of grit and determination to hold off a vastly superior set of players from West London, then joy o joy from my view from Kitchener upper Harry gets one one the napper and in 30seconds or less Jermaine scores a really very good goal, Harry lives about 2 miles from me so I might go round later to see if he needs any consoling LOL, on a more serious note what is the point of Morison ?, he makes only token attempts at throw-ins,crosses/upfield punts, send him back to Leeds where he will be banished to the stiffs, if he showed half the determination of McDonald or Malone he would still be playing first choice somewhere or other ,
    Keep fighting wall.

      @wandererwall: I know what you mean but his performance against Blackpool was imperious. He can do it at this level, clearly he hasn't shown SL that he can be consistent yet. Maybe he is still injured?

    What I don't like is the way he seemed to suggest that it was deliberate and has mentioned Joe Jordans 'cuts' in the media. If he loves us so much surely he would just write it off as a comedic incident and no real harm done. There is an incidious nature to his comments which is dissapointing.

    good result - but not so sure about the substitutions?
    Takes off best forward when non contributory midfielder (Trotter) is on the floor injured.
    Mcdonald needs some help up front - Waghorn is good - but where is he supposed to be playing
    Then takes Trotter off for Morrison??

    Mind you Harry gave a good horse tip two Fridays ago on the radio it won 7/2 perhaps that should be his next job taking over from McRirrick or whatever his name is on C4 racing. Harry has always been a ducker and diver and used to visit the old den a lot, he does genuinely have a liking for Millwall and might have made a good manager with us. Still the issue of the ball throwing should not be exaggerated and the headline above is typical sensationalism from the journalists. Easter's goal was magic and its a pity the BBC did not show more of the game last night, they did not show the penalty appeal.

    never really had a problem with Harry we all know what he's like (a bit of a geezer) but did'nt like the way he tried to make more of it, the ball was clearly being thrown back to Robbo and Harrys bonce got in the way, funny video lol. dissapointed less than 14000 for prob biggest game of season, but something summed up some peoples attitude when a bloke walked past me on his way out with 15 mins left saying "cant beat a prem team can ya" why bother coming then, we could'nt beat Man U in the cup final, we still supported em till the end and had a great day. A draw yesterday was a great result, so come on get back down there give em some support. there is good signs, Malone brilliant again Mcd looks good, all did well apart from Morro who's just gone back to his lazy old self.

      @macman: exactly right, it was slapstick comedy and no malicious intent to either Harry or Joe. Would be nice if Harry came out with a public statement saying that rather than fanning the flames.

      @macman: people will see the harry episode for what it is a storm in a tea cup,what im more worried about is the morro situation as you say he seems to have gone back to his lazy ways,so if he has no injury problems being the cause perhaps it might be better to give a youngster a chance.in the 1st team squad and send him back to leeds as soon as possible.

        @<his body language yesterday was a joke, we know he has got ability but cant help thinking he's just treading water picking up his 10k a week, had his couple of seasons in the prem so a fairly rich fella now, expect he'll have the odd moment or two but would rather see someone hungry, not a big fan of Easter but you could see he wanted it yesterday and made an impact, pleased for him.

      @mfc31: I think the sad little man has a problem, I would,t mind if he was a Charlton or Palace fan but following LUFC and having the audacity to comment on us so vehemently I find it laughable. (stones in greenhouses and all that)
      Perhaps a Millwall fan ran over his pet gerbil as a child.
