MILLWALL fans can see manager Neil Harris pull on his boots again in a charity match at The Den this evening (6pm kick-off).

The game has been organised by former Lions youngster Tobi Alabi, who was forced to retire from football in 2013 due to a heart condition.

Alabi has since launched the Heart4More foundation, which raises awareness of cardiac-related issues within the game, and funds raised from tonight's clash will go to the charity.

A Millwall Legends XI will include Harris, his assistant Dave Livermore, plus Tony Warner, Scott Barron, Kenny Cunningham, Robbie Ryan, Stuart Nethercott, Matt Lawrence, Danny Hockton, Gary Alexander and Alan Dunne.

Alabi, who will be player-manager of the Heart4More XI, has the likes of Charlton duo Zak Ansah and Jordan Cousins, Brighton's Jeffrey Monakana, former Lion Shaun Batt and ex-Scotland striker Chris Iwelumo in his squad.

Yesterday, Arsenal star Chuba Akpom was also confirmed to play for Alabi's XI.

Turnstiles will open at 5pm with the game kicking off at 6pm.

Tickets can be purchased up until kick-off at the Millwall Ticket Office, online now at www.millwalltickets.com or via 0844 826 2004.

Prices are £7 for adults and £3 for U16s (West Stand Executive and Uper Tier seats). For more details about the charity email info@heart4more.org.uk

Admission includes use of the lounge and bar where light snacks will also be available and after the game the players will join fans for photos and autographs.

    There has been far too much charity at The Den these past couple of years. Every team who has played there has had plenty.
