MILLWALL have exercised their right to recall forward Shaun Batt from his loan spell at League One side Leyton Orient.

Batt has scored three goals in 13 appearances since first joining the O's in January and was due to remain in East London until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old, who is a free agent in the summer, has been brought back to The Den to provide manager Kenny Jackett with another attacking option ahead of a hectic finale to the campaign.



Orient boss Russell Slade said: "Shaun has been a real success during his time here and aside from some terrific performances on the pitch he has been an excellent figure in the changing room."

    Thank God. We've been lacking a world class striker recently.

    Give the guy a break at least he tries, what amazes me is when he was injured we stood by him now he is ok and can get on a pitch we let his contract run out, better then a few strikers we have at the club at the moment.

    It's more a ? Of are we that bad.
    I also liked him before that injury but sometimes you need to be realistic, he's a good league one player. he'll be full of confidence and come the summer he'll end up with a contract at the Os. Not sure what good it does us actually, attacking cover or not, if he don't make the bench then we'll end up with an unhappy player. we sent him out on loan to get games and that's what he got, so to come back and not feature would be unfair to him. I think he would have been better off staying with the Os.

    Alkz has got a very good point, why stand by the bloke then have no interest? committed with a point to prove, Should have sold N guess why the eyebrows up, to Charlton and let batt have his place, watched him for O's on tele and he was awkward, sometimes you need that, and he was a winger for Peterborough before he came, and remember his goal against Leeds a lot better then N guess Who ?

    Before his injury he put in some good performances as a winger rather than a striker, if fit he would be an effective option for the right hand side of a 3 man attack. He is back to take Chaplows place in that position, no doubt! I am still to be convinced that he is good enough BUT I do rememner that goal against Leeds where we won at Elland Road 1:0.

      Yeah I remember that goal against Leeds, who was also in league one. I have nothing against batt, I just don't see the point in bringing him back to make him unhappy, I can't see him getting much game time cause there's players ahead of him, and IMO we need to be realistic with him and a few more in our squad in terms of what they can bring us in this division. If we stay up they'll have to go, but at a loss. If we go down then we will have to keep hold of em and hope we only lose the loanee's.

    No ones convinced and I agree with luke his not good enough for the technical side of the championship, but physically awkward, if he make a run in to the box 10 times a game at every opportunity at least we have filled the box, at 6ft2 and gangly direct and willing runner, you could argue abdou is not good enough? But simple and effective full of commitment gets involved with tackles?

    I agree he'll probably sign for O's in the summer. He's not the same player since his injury and he's not what we're looking for.

      I do see you point wall, but it's not us who should give him a chance, it's KJ and to be honest if we lose tomorrow night we could be 2 points off the drop come Sunday and desperate, there's no way KJ will start him unless there's another injury or suspension. I just think sometimes when you make a decision on a player then you should stick to it, especially this late stage into the season.

        We could also be 7 or 8 pts off the drop with games in hand! We're not going down Luke, even if we are 2 pts off come Sunday, which I doubt we will be. Batt has to have been brought back as cover for Hulse, which says a hell of a lot for Tyson!

    Has anyone given jimmy sorry, George - now then, now then boys and girls - savile any thought. What's KJ doing with him ? And what's the point of him being here ? If KJs to use the loan market then Chelsea is a very good place to look, not playing the kid can't be doing much to inhance the relations between our clubs. Unless he's blooding him into the millwall way of thinking and wants to use him in the last five or so games. Will he get a chance now that chaplow is out? I don't think it's costing us much in terms of wages or even a loan fee, but think it would be nice for a reporter (Alex Aldridge) to ask the ? And maybe post the answer. It just seems odd to me, almost as odd as bringing the batt man back. I'd like to know what he can learn playing in our reserves that he hasn't already learnt in Chelsea's youths when playing Barcelona and man utd ect. The kid looks ok when I've seen him - admittedly very little, but he may bring that bit of enthusiasm, drive and energy we have lacked this half of the season.
    Sorry guys but I can't see the point in wasting this kids time like this.

    Depends what the agreement was in the terms of the loan, he only might be here as cover if need be, and he may know that, plus we lost two midfielders Racon the one legged derided! And the MAC who's a shadow of the player he was before he was also injured what a poor showing from him in the JPT, but jackett can be stubborn with the if its not broken dont fix it!

    Yeah that'll make sence bush.
    I love KJs stubbornness, but the frustration comes when it is broken, cause he'll make a few odd and dodgy decisions. MAC has been poor the past couple games, but they're having a tough time lately. Rac seems to be playing every week for Pompey and has hopefully done enough to earn a contract off em.

    Personally like batt, not as a footballer for us though. Clumsy , poor control, can't finish, can't dribble that great, wastes possession, gives away too many fouls. But he tries and never gives up on anything which is why I like him. Not good enough for us though sadly.

    The midfield for the final would jack smith due to him being the most composed player that we have, I'd have abdou and Taylor roaming, before you say what he on about but I really enjoyed abdou bombing forward, and being the furthest player with Adam bolder sitting (literally) , when Kandol was upfront ad yes he was shocking, abdou was brillent, 3 or so of Kandol's goal were tap in with abdou breaking plus legs to get back, and the goal against Leeds ? Composer flair engine?

    Forde, Dunne, Shittu, Beevers, Lowry, Trotter, Taylor, St.Ledger, Henry, Hulse, Keogh.
    442.
    That's out best team for Wembley at the moment. Subs- Taylor, Smith A, Smith J, Abdou, Feeney, Batt, N'Guessan.
    I don'trate 3 of the subs but have to use what we've got to cover all scenarios.

    For what it's worth then, continuing the in KJ's shoes theme and admittedly based on what I have seen on TV in recent weeks and my own value of St Ledger as a top loan signing:
    Forde
    Dunne-Shittu-Beevers-Lowry
    Henry(ASmith)-Trotter-St.Ledger-JSmith-Taylor
    Hulse
    Keogh on the bench, N'Guessan at home watching on TV.
    If Henry isn't fit I think ASmith could fill in, he more or less played there in the 2nd half for England U21's recently and looked good going forward, albeit against 10 and then 9 men. As back up for Dunne it should stop young McManaman getting too far forward! Hulse has to play up top, call me mad but I still have an inkling he might do us a job between now and the end of the season and his assist for Taylor was class at the weekend. Not many slagging him here after the Brum game either, although I haven't read every post!

        Personally I think we may be being a bit hasty with starting 11 for Saturday, lets get tonight over with and see where we stand in terms of personel, have a sneaky feeling there'll be a surprise or two - good and bad.
        As Easter is cup tied would you start him tonight or put him on the bench?

    Jackett's got a thing about Trotter. He shouldn't be playing at all but that's why I've included him.

    Love Jimmy but until he learns to pass a ball he will always have the odd game where he gives away posession to easily. JSmith seemed to fit in perfectly IMO, and his passsing was excellent. I only saw St Ledger against Ipswich and thought KJ was mad bringing him on but assumed it was only to win aerial ball in front of defence. Was he really a convincing defensive midfielder at Birmingham???? I wasn't there so would be interested in others opinions.....

    Let hope Batt Man can find some form if he get's a chance to prove he is worth new contract. It's a real shame what a player is out for so long and Millwall have had their fair share over the years.

      Apart from being pony?? Apparently stormed out of the ground when found out he was dropped - can't remember what game. Hopefully we'll get shot of him in the summer.

    I'd go 4 3 3 against Wigan most likely 5 2 2 1 man for man with Kone.A (birdshit head) V Shittu, J smith on Maloney, Becausejor I,d have a fit Henry or Keogh, and batt on the over side to stop Boyce and to deal with him height wise, with somehow I got a pulse up front.

    It was the Blackburn game wright was meant to of stormed out, this wasn't true though. How could you start Batt vs Wigan have you been following Millwall this season?

      Ok, if he didn't storm out, he's (Wright) disappeared cos he's pony! If we are light on bodies playing wide, out of what we've got, I'd like to see A.Smith in midfield tonight and Saturday.
