Millwall's Romeo is keen to impress

8 July 2016

Youngster Mahlon working hard

Millwall right-back Mahlon Romeo is taking nothing for granted as he looks to play regular first team football once again this coming season.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a memorable breakthrough campaign last time out, finishing 2016/17 as the club's number one choice at right-back until suspension saw him sit out the Play-Off campaign.

Romeo will have competition for his place when Shaun Cummings overcomes a long-term injury, in addition to young defender James Brown, and the Antigua & Barbuda international insists his only focus at the moment is impressing manager Neil Harris.

"It's good to be back with the boys," he said.

"You miss it more than you think. It's nice to have a week or two to rest and put your feet up but then it's good to get back training.

"Naturally I feel a more experienced player now but I'm approaching this (pre-season) exactly the same in terms of still trying to impress the gaffer by working as hard as I can.

"Everyone is buzzing for the first match now. We'll stay focused and make sure we are ready for Oldham."
