Karleigh Osborne played with Gary Alexander and David Hunt while at Brentford
Millwall’s Capital One Cup clash with Crawley will feel like a reunion to new defender Karleigh Osborne.
Lining up against him will be Gary Alexander and David Hunt – both of them former team-mates at Brentford.
The 24-year-old remains good friends with them but that will go on hold for 90 minutes.
“It’d be good to play against people like Gary again,” Osborne told London24.
“I look forward to the proper games.
“He’s a quality guy. He’s a nice guy and a quality footballer but when we’re on that pitch we won’t be the best of friends and I’m sure he’ll give me a few elbows.
“He helped me a lot at Brentford and he’s a good guy. I speak to him a lot still now.
“He did a lot for Millwall as a club. After the 90 we’ll be friends again.
Osborne also could have something planned for Hunt – one of the practical jokers at Brentford.
“Me and Hunty are good mates,” he said.
“He played a few practical jokes on me.
“I’ll definitely need to get him back at some point!
Like Scott Malone and Chris Porter, Osborne is set to make his bow at The Den as a home player, after experiencing it with Brentford.
“It’ll be different being here as their player,” he added.
“They have great fans and it’s great when it’s buzzing.”
