Shaun Hutchinson hits milestone – and defender also on lengthy run of playing every minute in Championship for Millwall

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Shaun Hutchinson clocked up his 150th appearance for Millwall in Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Sheffield Wednesday.

The 29-year-old centre-back, right, joined the Lions on a free transfer from Fulham in July 2016.

Hutchinson has played every minute in the Championship for the Lions this season.

His run of being an ever-present on the pitch in that competition is 36 matches, a run that stretches back to December 7, 2019 when he was on the bench for the visit of Forest.

Jake Cooper is joint sixth in Millwall’s all-time record of consecutive league appearances – level with Brian Brown on 133 games – after also featuring against the Owls.

Millwall’s home game against QPR will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The match is still on December 8 and will kick off at the same time (7.45pm).

Rangers enjoyed their last visit to The Den as Nakhi Wells scored twice to secure victory. Prior to that Millwall were unbeaten in their last six league encounters in SE16.
