Justin Hoyte: Middlesbrough defender has joined Millwall on loan

The right-back played in a behind-closed-doors friendly for the Lions on Tuesday afternoon after joining the Den outfit for training on Monday.

Hoyte, who signed for Middlesbrough in a £3million deal from Arsenal in the summer of 2008, has made just four appearances for the Riverside Stadium outfit this season.

The 28-year-old started the Capital One Cup defeat by Accrington in August and the 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship later the same month, but has made just two brief substitute appearances since then.

Millwall boss Steve Lomas has now turned to Hoyte to increase his defensive options and the new signing will be hoping to feature in Saturday's clash with Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.

Lomas' men have shipped a worrying 28 goals in their 14 Championship games to date and are mired in a five-game run without a win, which leaves them just three points above the relegation zone.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
