Gregory enjoying his 'learning curve'

22 July 2014

Striker nets first strike at the training ground

Summer signing Lee Gregory says every day is a learning curve after netting his first goal for the club in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Aldershot on Tuesday afternoon.

It was The Lions' third pre-season friendly so far, and the first time Gregory completed 90 minutes for his new club after successive 45-minute appearances against Dartford and Stevenage.

The forward tapped home from a few yards out after a neat cut back from Jermaine Easter and was pleased to hit the back of the net for the first time as a Lion against The Shots.

"It's always good to get off the mark," he told millwallfc.co.uk. "But the main thing was working on our fitness again. It was nice to get 90 minutes under my belt but I'm feeling a bit stiff, though I'm sure I'll feel fitter for it in the next game."

Asked for the differences he is experiencing between what he has been used to with Halifax in non-league to now, Gregory said: "It's all about your awareness and the amount of runs you have to make. Last year at times, when I wasn't on the ball, I could afford to walk a bit more after doing some forward runs. Now, though, you're running forward, then back and always making sure you're in the right place at the right time. 

"It's all about being on the ball at all times. It's a massive learning curve for me and one that I'm enjoying."
