He had stints at Harrogate Town, Whitby Town and FK Baník Most in the Czech Republic before he moved to Doncaster Rovers in August 2009. During his time with Rovers he was loaned to Hereford United and Northampton Town, the latter stay becoming a permanent move in 2011.

A year later, he moved to Yeovil Town where he would really kickstart his career, making 98 appearances over the course of his two-year stint at Huish Park, scoring a total of nine goals.

His form while there prompted clubs from higher up the EFL spectrum to be interested, with Millwall becoming his preferred choice. Throughout his four-and-a-half year stay with the Lions, he made 100 league starts. In total, he scored eight goals in 137 appearances in all competitions.

During his tenure at the Den, he returned to the Glovers for a brief loan spell in 2015 where he made a further 14 appearances.
