Every football supporter fantasises about playing for the club they support. Few achieve that ambition and pull on the shirt. Fewer still go on to wear the captains armband, while barely a handful are rewarded with a testimonial for services to their team. Tony Craig has done it all. Two decades and 254 appearances on from watching Millwall as a boy in the Cold Blow Lane stand, the defender will lead his side out against Brentford on Saturday at the Den for a game in his honour. Its an occasion he admits he could not even have dreamed about all those years ago.It gives me goosebumps even talking about it, he said to Sky Sports. You could say its a dream come true, but its something youd never even dare to dream about. I cant believe my luck. Ive had to move on a couple of times but thankfully the club have always wanted me to come back and its a club I absolutely adore and love playing for; I love playing every single minute and every time I put the shirt on. Im a fan and to do it, Im living my dream. Every day is a dream come true. Its a club I absolutely adore; I love playing every single minute and every time I put the shirt on. Im a fan and every day is a dream come true. Tony Craig It hasnt always been plain sailing for Craig at Millwall. There have been two play-off final defeats, a relegation and, as he says, spells away from the club. But Craig - now in his fourth stint as a Millwall player - is relishing life under manager, and former team-mate, Neil Harris.Weve known each other for many years and he knows my strengths and weaknesses, Craig says of Harris, Millwalls all-time top scorer who steered the club to the League One play-off final in his first full season as a manager in 2015/16. Neil and [assistant manager] Dave Livermore did exceptionally well in their first year and hopefully they can have another good one. Ever since he took the team over, theres a style the gaffer keeps saying about which is the Millwall way. Thats to fight for every ball, to battle and to stand up and be counted.Its an approach personified by Craig. The tough-tackling, hard-hitting centre-back is one of Harris key leaders on the field and, at 31, is now an experienced head, able to guide and mentor Millwalls blossoming young talents. Tim Cahill was a team-mate of Craig when he first broke into the Millwall side Aiden OBrien, Ben Thompson, Fred Onyedinma and Sid Nelson were among the academy graduates to make their mark last season and now form an important part of Harris ambitious squad.But the goals of striker Lee Gregory will also be a key factor in whether Millwall can win promotion to the Championship. While his former Halifax team-mate Jamie Vardy was firing Leicester City to the Premier League title last season, Gregory found the net 27 times in all competitions.His goal return has attracted attention from Championship clubs but captain Craig says the frontman is fit and focused on producing another successful season in south London. EFL Trophy draw Click here to see the draw for the first round of the EFL Trophy Lee Gregory is a great lad and his goalscoring record last year was absolutely brilliant so it was obvious people were going to come and have a sniff round him, Craig said.But hes come in for pre-season, got fighting fit and to me he looks ready for the season. Lee and Steve Morison last season were a very good partnership up there so hopefully that can continue this season. Millwalls top scorer last season Lee Gregory (right) has attracted interest from the Championship Were a good team and weve kept the core of the squad, so lets see where the season takes us. There are a lot of good sides in this league, some big sides have come down and its exciting times, an exciting league to be involved in. Hopefully we can push it all the way.Craig won promotion from League One with Millwall in 2010 thanks to a play-off final victory over Swindon at Wembley. Along with scoring on his home debut in front of the Cold Blow Lane end, he says walking up the steps to lift the trophy that day is one of his highlights of his career.His testimonial on Saturday will be another. Then the hard work of battling for another promotion begins.Buy tickets for Tony Craigs testimonial, Millwall v Brentford on Saturday July 30, at www.millwallfc.co.uk/tickets or on the day at the Den Testimonial proceeds to charity A donation from the proceeds generated by Tony Craigs testimonial will go to Headley Court, the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre in Surrey.

Carlos Gomez had three hits with an RBI and the Brewers extended their winning to six games with a 6-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday night. The Brewers wins have all come on the road during the streak. They came to Philadelphia following a three-game sweep at defending World Series champion Boston. "It sure was (impressive)," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of the trip. "Great pitching, some big hits, bullpens doing a great job. Everythings working. Guys are getting some big hits right now." They battered the Phillies with 25 runs and 38 hits in the three-game sweep. Milwaukee has batted .320 and has outscored opponents 42-18 during the streak. "Were scoring some early and then getting to those late innings and adding on," Roenicke said. Ryan Braun had two hits and an RBI, ending the series 6 for 12 with 10 RBIs while increasing his lifetime total to 24 RBIs in 21 games at Citizens Bank Park. Braun opened the series by homering three times in Tuesdays 10-4 win. Khris Davis had two hits and two RBIs for the Brewers, who return home to host Pittsburgh on Friday night. Milwaukees 6-0 road start is its best since starting the 1987 season 7-0. "It was kind of a whole team effort on this trip and were excited to keep it going," said Jonathan Lucroy, who doubled. Marco Estrada (1-0) allowed two runs and five hits in six innings, striking out six and walking two, to earn the victory. "Not only with our pitching, but with our offence, it was well played overall," Estrada said. "Its the way you want to do it, were hitting, were pitching, its the way we just have to keep doing it. Obviously, its tougher on the road to do, but we did it. It just shows what kind of team we are. Were a pretty good team." Marlon Byrd homered and had two RBIs for the Phillies, who lost their fourth straight. "The good news is they are leaving town," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Now we have to concentrate on gaining some momentum starting (Friday)." Philadelphias Chase Utley had two hits after returning from a two-game absence because of the flu. Utley batted .458 with two homers and six RBIs in his first six games prior to the illness. Cliff Lee (2-1) struck out eight and walked none, but he also allowed eight hits that resulted in three runs in six innings. Lee has allowwed 29 hits in three games.dddddddddddd "Theyre a good hitting team and they showed it in the whole series," Lee said. "They flat-out beat us." Byrds shot to left in the second put Philadelphia ahead 1-0. The Brewers took the lead with a pair of runs in the fourth on Aramis Ramirezs RBI double and Davis RBI single. Milwaukee added a run in the sixth on Davis two-out RBI double. Philadelphia responded with a two-out run in the bottom of the sixth when Byrd beat out a chopper to third with the bases loaded. Estrada then got Domonic Brown to fly out to centre to end the bases-loaded threat. Milwaukee added three runs in the seventh. The Brewers got some help when Carlos Ruiz elected to throw to second on pinch-hitter Logan Schafers sacrifice bunt intended to move Rickie Weeks to second. Ruizs throw pulled shortstop Jimmy Rollins off the bag and put runners on first and second with no outs to set up the big inning. Defensive miscues have been a problem all season for Philadelphia, which entered with nine errors in eight games and several plays, such as Ruizs, that havent been ruled errors but have been costly miscues. Gomez singled home Weeks, Jean Segura drove in Estrada and Brauns sacrifice fly scored Gomez. All three runs were charged to righty reliever Jeff Manship, who faced three batters without recording an out. Milwaukee extended its club record of consecutive innings with a hit to 22 innings when Braun singled to right with two outs in the first. Lee retired the Brewers in order in the second, striking out the side, to end the streak. Brown made an excellent diving catch to take a hit away from Scooter Gennett in the ninth. It was the third diving catch off the bat of Gennett in two games. Notes: The victory gave Milwaukee its first sweep of the Phillies in Philadelphia. ... Cody Asches eighth-inning error gave Philadelphia 10 errors in eight games. Only the Dodgers and Marlins, each with 11, entered Thursday with more fielding miscues than Philadelphia among NL teams. ... A.J.
