Gregory praises Millwall team-mates for 'brilliant' service

Striker pays tribute to Lions colleagues

In-form striker Lee Gregory has praised his Millwall team-mates for the 'brilliant' service they provided him in Saturday's 3-0 win over Walsall.

Gregory scored his 17th and 18th goals of an increasingly prolific campaign as The Lions reduced the gap on fifth-placed Coventry City.

Saturday's brace stretched Gregory's scoring run to five consecutive games and the 27-year-old has now netted eight goals in his last seven appearances for Millwall.

But rather than take the plaudits himself, Gregory has heaped praise on his Lions colleagues, specifically Jed Wallace and Shaun Williams, who both laid on assists for the striker at the Banks's Stadium.

"I'm in good form at the minute but credit goes to my team-mates behind me for giving me the service," he said.

"Jed is really direct so as soon as he gets the ball I know he is going to try and beat his man and put it in the box, so it's about me getting in the right place and fortunately I was today (Saturday). The service was brilliant and I could have scored a couple more.

"We started a little bit slow (against Walsall) but when we came in at half-time at 0-0 the gaffer gave us some different jobs to do and I think we did them well. It was a great team performance in horrible conditions so I'm glad we got the win.

"We're in good form at the minute but we have got to keep working hard in training."
