Millwall make Wise move
Dennis Wise
Wise scored against Leicester at the New Den
Millwall will take extra security measures for Dennis Wise's return to Leicester on Saturday.

Wise will return to the Walkers Stadium for the first time since being sacked by the Foxes following a pre-season incident, which left Callum Davidson with a broken cheekbone.

The midfielder decided to sue Leicester for wrongful dismissal and later received death threats.

Millwall fans have been banned from Saturday's game in a similar measure taken against Leicester supporters when the two teams played in November.

The match at the New Den went without incident and we're hoping for the same level of professionalism from Leicester

That match saw Wise score a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw.

"We've looked at every aspect of security and tightened up on certain areas because we'd anticipated this was going to be a difficult match," said Millwall security and operations advisor Ken Chapman.

"It would be naive to expect anything but a hostile atmosphere.

"But there is no excuse for any of our supporters to go up there and we've asked our fans to be responsible.

"The match at the New Den went without incident and we're hoping for the same level of professionalism from Leicester."

Meanwhile, Millwall chairman Theo Paphitis believes any possible pay-out the Football Association, Football Foundation and Premier League make available will only help in the short-term.

The three bodies are considering giving club's a cash boost in the aftermath of ITV Digital's collapse.

"Clubs now have a bit longer to put their houses in order and secure their futures by managing themselves better," said Paphitis.
