Tunnicliffe "feels at home" at Millwall

The midfielder speaks after his first goal for The Lions...

Ryan Tunnicliffe hopes his goal last weekend is the first of many for Millwall.

The midfielder, signed in the summer transfer window, scored The Lions' second in Saturday evening's televised 2-0 Sky Bet Championship victory over Birmingham City and talked through his "special" strike.

"You've seen many of those attempts blasted over the crossbar, so the first thing on my mind as the ball was rolling towards me was to keep my head over it and hit it down towards the goal. Thankfully, it went through the defender's legs and unsighted the goalkeeper," he said.

"To get my first goal for Millwall at home was quite special. Hopefully there's many more to come."

After rising through the ranks at Manchester United and taking in spells at clubs such as Fulham, Ipswich Town and Wigan Athletic, Tunnicliffe arrived at Millwall having to adapt to The Lions' 4-4-2 system.

The 24-year-old, however, feels he has now begun to settle at The Den.

"We have an effective style if we can get it right. It causes a lot of teams trouble.

"It's been an adapting period for me. I've done a lot of work since coming into the side. I want to improve, get better and fit into the way we play.

"I feel at home here. It's an easy club to settle into - a family club. The crowd are so passionate about Millwall and everyone makes you feel welcome."
