Gregory confident goals will come

Goalscorer speaks following Blades win...

4 December 2017

Millwall striker Lee Gregory is enjoying his football at The Den - and hopes the goals will keep on coming.

The striker scored his third goal of the season to open the scoring during Saturday afternoon's 3-1 Sky Bet Championship victory over Sheffield United and also set up the second goal, scored by Mahlon Romeo.

Gregory had gone eight games without registering before the visit of The Blades, but maintained a performance level that saw the Den faithful sing his name on a weekly basis.

"I'm happy with my performance, but the win is more important - that's all that matters," the striker said.

"I think I've been playing like that every week. I played like that against Hull in our last home game, but unfortunately I didn't score. Now I've scored, it looks a bit better.

"I'm enjoying my football at the moment - hopefully the goals will keep coming."

The frontman's strike last weekend was extra sweet - a Sheffield United fan, Gregory was released by The Blades as a youngster.

Despite the 29-year-old being struck down by illness before kick-off and at half-time, he claimed that "nothing would stop him playing" against his boyhood club.

"It's always good to score a goal, but it feels that much sweeter today. To get an assist, too, is the icing on the cake. I felt a bit ill, a bit under the weather, but nothing was going to stop me playing against Sheffield United."

With nine goals to his name during The Lions' last Championship campaign, Gregory has his sights set on a target in 2017/18 - but was unmoved on just what that was.

"I'm not the type of player that lacks confidence. As long as I'm getting chances, then I'm taking the positives out of it. When I stop getting chances, that's when there's something wrong. The goals will come as long as I keep getting the chances.

"I've got targets on my mind and they're not out of reach yet - when I get to them, I'll let you know! If I keep getting the chances, I'll hit the target."
