'I think I owed those goals' says Millwall striker Lee Gregory

Lions frontman now sets his sights on Chesterfield

Lee Gregory's brace against Port Vale on Sunday fired him to the top of the goalscoring chart at Millwall - and the striker insists that he is hungrier than ever to add to his tally.

The former AFC Halifax frontman grabbed his 12th and 13th goals of an increasingly productive campaign as The Lions swept into a 3-0 half-time lead against Vale.

Although the visitors pulled a goal back in the second-half, the result was never in any doubt - and neither was the delight expressed by 27-year-old Lee, who aims to keep his run of form going when Millwall visit Chesterfield this weekend.

"It was a massive win for us against Port Vale and keeps us a point behind the Play-Offs," he said.

"I was very happy with the goal. I don't normally score many with my head. I was also glad to score two goals as well because I think I owed it after the ones I missed on Thursday night. Hopefully I can take that into Chesterfield this Saturday.

"The Gaffer spoke to me before Sunday's game and said forget about the chances that I had missed on Thursday; he said that good strikers score one in four and that I had missed three on Thursday, so make sure I scored the next one!

"He is confident all the time that I am going to do well and it is good to have that backing."

Looking ahead to this Saturday's first ever visit to the Proact Stadium, Lee added: "At Chesterfield we need to start like we did on Sunday and hopefully get a result.

"There is still a long way to go this season and you never can tell. We have 20 games remaining and a lot of points to play for so hopefully we can get further up the table."
