CONNECTIONS: Coventry City v Millwall - Take a look at those who have represented both clubs in their career

2 February 2017

Dion Dublin and Simeon Jackson are just two of the four who feature...

Ahead of Saturday's fixture against Millwall, we have picked out four players to pull on the shirt of both the Sky Blues and the Lions...

Darius Henderson
Coventry City (2016 – 5 appearances 0 goals)
Millwall (2011-2013 - 51 appearances 22 goals)

The striker had a brief spell at the Sky Blues last season after signing in February 2016. He struggled to make the desired impact, playing on just five occasions, all as a substitute, and failing to find the back of the net. 

It was at Millwall the 35-year-old had one of his most successful spells. He joined the Lions in 2011 and spent two seasons at the club. In his first season he scored 16 goals in his first 22 matches, including three hat tricks to help steer Millwall away from the Championship relegation zone.

Dion Dublin
Coventry City (1994-1998 – 145 appearances 61 goals)
Millwall (2002 – 5 appearances 2 goals)

The striker joined the Sky Blues in 1994, establishing himself as one of the best in the Premier League. He would go onto represent England during his time with City and also set a record at the time for the most goals in a top division season with 23 in all competitions. 

In the 1997-98 season, Dublin was named the top goalscorer in the Premier League alongside star names Chris Sutton and Michael Owen – with each scoring 18 goals. 

Dublin joined Millwall for a brief loan spell in 2002 from Aston Villa. He only featured on five occasions but did manage to score twice – Including in the Play-Off Semi-Final against Birmingham.

Andy Marshall
Coventry City (2006-2009 – 59 appearances 0 goals)
Millwall (2004-2006 & 2013-2014 – 67 appearances 0 goals)

In June 2006, Marshall joined Coventry City on a free transfer becoming a favourite with the fans. In the 2006-07 season he won multiple awards that were voted for by the clubs supporters, including the Player of the Season Award. 

He made 59 appearances for the Sky Blues before leaving on a free transfer to provide back up for Brad Guzan and Brad Friedel at Aston Villa. 

Marshall made 67 appearances for Millwall over three different spells at the club. He initially joined on loan from Ipswich Town before making the move permanent in 2004. During his time at the Den, Marshall reached the 2004 FA Cup final, losing out to Manchester United.

Simeon Jackson
Coventry City (2014-2015 – 28 appearances 3 goals)
Millwall (2014 – 14 appearances 2 goals)

The Canadian international arrived at Millwall in February 2014, after a spell with Bundesliga side Eintracht Braunschweig. His spell with the Lions would only last one year and it didn’t prove to be a fruitful one, as his game time was limited under then Lions' manager Ian Holloway.

Once the former Canadian Player of the Year departed the Lions in August 2014, he moved to the Sky Blues ahead of the 2014/15 season. The forward had a lot more game time at the Ricoh, but he was unable to make a lasting impression, eventually leaving the club at the end of the 2014/15 campaign.
