Wallace keen to kick on after impressive Millwall debut

11 January 2016

"I can only improve," says the midfielder

Jed Wallace is hoping to make a big impact during the remainder of his loan spell at Millwall.

The 21-year-old, signed on a one-month deal from Wolves last Friday, went straight into the side against Oldham and made an instant impression - bursting down the right wing and setting up Shane Ferguson, whose shot was rebounded into the path of Lee Gregory to open the scoring inside two minutes.

He showed real attacking intent and pace throughout his hour-long appearance at Boundary Park and says that his form will only get better with more regular match action.

"For me to get 60 odd minutes under my belt when I haven't played really for three months is good," Wallace said.

"I can only improve now and I'm looking forward to contributing and helping the team move forward.

"Luckily for me it was a quick transition from signing to playing and I managed to get straight out there and have some minutes.

"There is a lot of games coming up, especially considering the Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie, so if I can score some goals and contribute to some wins then it will be great."

Wallace, who scored 17 goals in League Two for Portsmouth last season, says he listened to advice from two former Lions before moving to The Den.

"When I knew that Millwall was an option it was perfect for me," he added.

"Knowing the style of players that are here and that I'd be working under a young, enthusiastic manager, I felt it would really suit me. I spoke to James Henry and Paul Robinson and they told me what a great club it is to play for as well.

"Millwall is, without a doubt, one of the biggest clubs in this division. I want to try and help get this club back to the Championship, which is where it should be."
