Jed Wallace enjoying sense of freedom in Millwall system

19 December 2017

Jed Wallace was amongst the goals in the win over Middlesbrough and the workhorse believes a licence to roam is helping Millwall overwhelm Championship defences.

The Lions extended their unbeaten start to December with a ruthless display against Boro, creating more chances and having more shots on target than their highly rated opponents. 

"We are starting to get the results that our work rate deserves," Jed Wallace told millwallfc.co.uk

"I believe we are in a false position for the strength that we have in our squad and the way the manager sets us up - I think we are in a false position on the table.

"We pride ourselves on our home form and we proved again that when the fans turn out in their numbers The Den is a difficult place for these big teams to get a result.

"A special atmosphere can be created at home and it really gives us a lift."

Wallace has been given freedom to roam far and wide since returning from a three match ban earlier this month, adding potency to Millwall's attacking force.

"I know a big strength of mine is my running ability, I can run all day and pride myself on that," Wallace added.

"The manager has said to me he wants me to have a bit of a free role on the right and I sometimes find myself down the other end of the pitch.

"It's a credit to the other boys that they are happy and willing to put in the hard yards and cover for me to get into those positions.

"There's a real team ethic and I think it's probably the best change room i've played in, in terms of togetherness. I think that shows on the pitch, especially here at The Den.

"It's been a really good three games for us to start the month, really positive and it's something we can build on."
