The St Mirren goalkeeper, who moved to the Paisley club in the summer, worked under five different men in his final year at Blackburn Rovers. Steve Kean, Eric Black, Henning Berg and Michael Appleton and Gary Bowyer were all at some stage in control, however briefly, of the troubled club. Attempting to escape the chaos, he has instead wound up as one of the stars of the Danny Lennon Show, in which the goalkeeper and his bungling team-mates try each week to keep their manager in his job.
St Mirren haven't won yet in seven attempts, but the Frenchman - well-versed in the perils of knee-jerk dug-out changes - believes his experience in England should serve as a warning for triggy-happy chairmen. "Blackburn was a good place to learn my trade," he explained. "When I first moved they were in the Premier League and were playing against big sides, so it was a good experience seeing how all these teams prepared. I also got the chance to train with the first team a couple of times which was great for a young keeper."
It was upon relegation that the tale became harrowing. "But then we went down and it became a harder place to be around," he said. "They went through a lot of managers. The players all tried to get on with things and not think about it too much.
"But it still affects you having so many managers in a single year. It was not nice. So it is not good to see Danny going though a bad experience here at St Mirren. He is a really good manager so I hope the players can get a result for him and turn things around."
David Cornell, on loan from Swanseas, had started the season in goal, but after conceding 10 goals in just five SPFL Premiership starts, he was dropped for last week's 2-0 defeat to Hibernian at Easter Road. Dilo recovered from James Collins' opener for the Leith side to put in a decent display - one of the few St Mirren players who could claim to have done so - and now hopes to retain his place for Monday's visit of in-form Aberdeen to Paisley.
"It's not the easiest situation to be coming into a team with the results the way they are," Dilo conceded. "But I just have to get on with it and show what I can do. Hopefully I can keep my place in the team. I have worked hard to show the manager I can do a good job."
Lennon has had support from more than those in his own side. Mark Reynolds, the Aberdeen centre-back, knows the travails of being at the lower end of the league table. Despite now experiencing happier times, he believes tonight's opposition should stick by the man who led them to League Cup glory last season. "It's very early to be writing them off," he said. "Teams at the bottom are much more dangerous than teams at the top as they are fighting for their lives. St Mirren will be looking at Hearts closing the gap, worried about their cushion disappearing.
"That will give them plenty of motivation. But we can't get caught up in their situation. There is a pack forming at the top of the league and we want to be in it."
