MILLWALL are preparing for their FA Cup semi final this weekend - and they'll walk out at Wembley in Save Lewisham Hospital shirts.

The Lions are taking on Premiership side Wigan in the cup showdown, with a place in the final at stake.

And Kenny Jackett's men will be showing their heart lies by yet again warming up in shirts backing the campaign against Lewisham Hospital's A&E and maternity downgrade.

Chief Executive Andy Ambler said: "Lewisham Hospital is at the heart of our community and for us at the club too.  We are right behind the Save Lewisham Hospital campaign and remain fully committed in our support."

Meanwhile, a row of fans will be echoing the team with the help of another set of customised shirts, spelling out the same message and holding aloft a flag as they cheer the Lions on towards victory.

Campaigner Carol Brown said: "My life was saved last year by the dedicated staff of Lewisham Hospital A&E and ICU.

"As far as we are concerned, in the way they are supporting our hospital, Millwall are the team with the heart of a lion. They deserve to go all the way to the final."
