Winger Jed to continue giving '110%' for The Lions

Jed Wallace says he is keen to continue repaying the faith shown in him by Millwall boss Neil Harris.

The 21-year-old has made a big impact since joining on a month-long loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, contributing to three consecutive League wins which have lifted The Lions into the Play-Off places.

Harris has this week admitted that he will speak to Wolves manager Kenny Jackett about the prospect of extending Wallace's stay in SE16, which the winger is more than open to having enjoyed his time at the club so far.

"In the League we've won three out of three so for me that's perfect," he said.

"I'm really enjoying it and having a great time here at Millwall. Like I said before, I was really grateful for the opportunity to come to a club like this and I want to repay the faith the manager has shown in me, which so far I think I've done.

"I wanted to play like I was a permanent Millwall player and give 110%. When you're on loan you should definitely play for the club like you are on a three-year contract.

"Whether I've got three, 30 or five games left, I'll just give it everything I've got. As long as the manager here wants me then I'm sure there will be a discussion (with Wolves). But that is out of my hands so I don't really worry about it."

Next up for Millwall is Saturday's visit of Crewe Alexandra and Wallace is confident that he and his team-mates can put in a positive display at The Den.

"We've come into form at a good time," he added. 

"We've won three in a row (in the League) and going into Crewe I fancy us to put on a good performance at home.

"We have got to take each game as it comes and not worry about the teams around us now that we're in the top six."
