Bryan King is back at The Den on Saturday for what Millwall manager Neil Harris has described the club's biggest game of the season against Oxford United.

Before the team's bid to secure a League One play-off place resumes, Big Bryan will be taking some fans on a Legends tour of the stadium.

It is a fitting moment for former goalkeeper King to be back at the club for whom he made a record 380 appearances between 1967 and 1975.

But it will also make some supporters feel very old to know that he celebrated his 70th birthday last Tuesday.

Millwall have been under siege lately while there has been a threat to their future in south east London.

The presence in Bermondsey today of such a much loved and revered figure from the club's history should surely add to the flavour of what could be a significant afternoon for the team's future.
