Magaye Gueye sets his goal

21 August 2014

Lions forward wants more of the same

Magaye Gueye scored his first goal for Millwall in dramatic fashion at Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night - and now the former Everton man hopes more will follow as he settles into life with The Lions. Gueye, who joined The Lions in the summer following a four-year stint at Goodison Park, stepped off the bench to lash home a memorable last-gasp
 leveller at Hillsborough to secure a 1-1 draw and valuable point that maintained Millwall's unbeaten start to the season.

"It was a great ball from Ricardo Fuller and I just wanted to make sure I was in the right position to score, so I was very happy," he said.

"It was a long trip for the fans and to come to Hillsborough is never easy. We came to do a job and we didn't lose, which was good.

"Even when we missed the penalty we knew we had to keep trying and trying to score until the whistle went. That's what we try to do all the time.

"When you miss a great chance like we did it can be very difficult in your head but the team has great mentality, always going forward and trying."

Gueye now wants to build on his maiden Lions goal, but stresses he's just as happy setting others up as he is finding the back of the net himself.

"It's good for my confidence, but I never lose that. It was a good result and the team played well. To score is a bonus but if I pass the ball (to a team-mate to score) that's good as well.
"I wanted to score like that. I didn't want to give any chance to the keeper and be sure it went in. It was a good result and I hope we can do the same this weekend."
