The returning Tony Craig has now been named as our new club captain by manager Neil Harris following the one all draw with Wimbledon.

Having returned to The Den from Brentford the other week, he was handed the armband for the game on Saturday and speaking to the official site Harris went on to credit his leadership qualities and the way he leads by example as being the reasoning for the decision.

‘He brings natural leadership, he brings organisation and he brings experience. Tony is a natural leader for this club and has been for a long time. He will take extreme pride in the captaincy. It will be a privilege for him to wear the armband.’

Having played for an hour in the game on Saturday as we earned a draw late on in the game through Sid Nelson, Harris quickly addressed the stretchering off of Aiden O’Brien and he gave a mini reaction to the game itself and how it played out.

‘Apart from a three-minute spell in the first-half and a 90-second spell in the second-half I think we dominated the game. I was disappointed to see us go a goal down; a similar goal to the one we conceded on Tuesday against Bromley. We did create chances but didn’t take them. That is rustiness but we have to make sure we are clinical.’

Moving onto O’Brien he confirmed he had been sent for X-rays and everyone is hoping that it turns out to be nothing too serious for the lad.

‘He has gone off for an x-ray. We’re hoping that it is nothing serious. I’m not prepared to put a time on it now but he is not going to be available next week or, I would imagine, for the season opener. But we will know more on Monday.’
