A lucky goldfish has helped football team Millwall escape relegation on the final day of the season.

Millwall hasn't lost a single game since fan Tommy Pratt, who is a lifetime supporter of the club, bought a goldfish in April.

Tommy is a close friend of players Alan Dunne and David Forde and before each game he texts them with a message saying 'may the fish be with you'.

Apparently the fish is placed next to the TV at home where it flies about its bowl during the matches.

"The fish has been everywhere with us — it came out to dinner a few weeks ago," Dunne told News At Den.

Millwall beat Bournemouth 1-0 last weekend to stay in the Championship.

Manager Ian Holloway joked that getting some Koi for the training ground might not be a bad idea.
