Shane Lowry, formerly of Aston Villa, is happy to play anywhere he is needed to help the team and manager Kenny Jackett
Millwall star Shane Lowry will fill in at full back if required during the course of the season.
After the departures of Tony Craig and Scott Barron, who can both play there, to Brentford the Australian played on the left side in the back four against Crawley Town.
With a small squad at The Den it is conceivable that the 23-year-old could be a regular in that position but would prefer to play in the centre of defence.
“First and foremost, I see myself as a centre back,” Lowry said.
“I did well with Robbo [captain Paul Robinson].
“I’ll do whatever the gaffer [Kenny Jackett] and the team needs. I can play left back as well.
“I see myself first and foremost as a centre back but I can do the job there.”
Lowry had a groin problem during pre-season training but played all 120 minutes of the Lions’ 2-2 Capital One Cup draw with Crawley Town, but they went out after losing 4-1 on penalties.
“I feel a little bit behind,” the former Aston Villa man added.
“I missed a few games but that’s part of football. I’m getting there game by game.
“This is more minutes for me under my belt. If I’m selected on Saturday we can put things right in the Championship.”
