Upson excited about fixtures announcement

10 June 2014

Midfielder hoping for home game to open the 2014/15 season

Millwall midfielder Ed Upson says he can't wait for the 2014/15 campaign to kick-off - and is confident that it will be a good one for him and his team-mates.

The 24-year-old played at The Den on the opening day of last season as a Yeovil Town player, scoring the only goal in a 1-0 success for The Glovers.

This time around, though, Upson is determined to be find the back of the net in blue, but isn't fussed about who the side face on the opening day.

"Every game in the Championship is a massive one so you look forward to all of them," he told

"It would be nice to be at home for the first game, and I probably owe the fans after what happened last season. I would love to do that by scoring my first for the club.

"There isn't anybody in particular I would like to come up against. I just can't wait for the season to start, I'm really excited about getting going again.

"Personally I'm feeling very confident that we can have a good year. We ended last season in great form so let's try and carry that over."

Upson and his team-mates travel to Portugal for a warm weather training camp in the first full week of pre-season, an exercise which the midfielder believes will be beneficial come the start of the campaign.

"It's always good to get away as a squad, particularly in pre-season," he said. "The first couple of weeks is about regaining your fitness so the amount of running you do can be tough, but with it you will be ready for the season.

"You can get similar work done if you stayed at home but then all the players go straight back to their houses, meaning you don't get the time we will have out in Portugal to bond as a group, which is so important. I'm sure there will be some news lads out there, too, and it's the perfect way to get to know them."
