DUNNE AIMS TO PUT ONE OVER OLD PAL AGAIN; Charlton v Millwall; Championship: 3pm.


ALAN DUNNE hopes to get under Bob Peeters' skin again today - by inspiring Millwall to a south London derby triumph.

Dunne spent two years sharing the same dressing room as ex-Lions striker Peeters from 2003. Now the pair will be in enemy camps after Peeters landed the manager's job at arch-rivals Charlton earlier this year.

Lions skipper Dunne (below) recalled how he used to have the last laugh at the Belgian's expense off the pitch.

Now the defender wants a repeat on it. He said: "I hold my hands up and say I played my part in terrorising Bob.

"It was all good natured as Peter Sweeney and myself, being the younger lads, used to wind him up rotten with pranks. We also used to call him the BFG and he had a short temper at times.

"But, as you can imagine looking at him, he could handle himself and he could also give it back. He was a popular player at Millwall and was a big part of the team spirit we had under Dennis Wise.

"We lost contact when he left and then next thing I see is him turning up as Charlton manager. But I'm not surprised he is doing well as he is an intelligent guy and knows his football."
