Hutchinson makes Millwall comeback – as Bradshaw and Archer feature against Watford

SHAUN Hutchinson made his first competitive appearance since August 22 in Millwall's under-23 league game against Watford at The Den on Friday. 

Hutchinson started in the centre of defence alongside Lazar Stojsavlevic for Kevin Nugent's Professional Development side.

Centre-back Hutchinson played a planned 45 minutes before going off at half-time.

Jordan Archer, Tom Bradshaw and Jem Karacan also started. Bradshaw scored a penalty early in the second half after Rob Harvey had been fouled, before the striker quickly added a second from Isaac Olaofe's excellent pass.

Olaofe had a late chance to make it three, but the young Lions stretched their unbeaten run to seven league games.

Millwall: 4-4-2: Archer; Brown, Hutchinson (Debrah), Lazar Stojsavlevic, McNamara; Harvey, Karacan (Parker), Wicks, Saunders-Henry; Olafoe, Bradshaw (Alexander).
