Shaun Batt: Orient loan spell worked wonders

Shaun Batt: Orient loan spell worked wonders

The 26-year-old, loaned out to Brisbane Road to build up his match fitness following a long-term knee problem, was recalled by Lions manager Kenny Jackett last week and has had an eventful few days.

He got a late run-out at Wembley in Saturday's ill-fated FA Cup semi-final defeat by Wigan, and then climbed off the bench to hit a vital winner as Jackett's men beat Watford 1-0 on Tuesday night.

"The loan spell was exactly what I needed, I had to get out to get myself some match fitness and some regular game time and get myself through regular Saturday-Tuesday matches," he said.

"It's probably been three years since I did that regularly. It was what I needed and it's helped me to come back to Millwall a better player.

"I wasn't expecting to come back. Initially it was a month and then it was extended until the rest of the season.

"My view was that I was going to be at Leyton Orient until the end of the season so to get the call back, and how things have gone this week, has been a real plus point for me."
