Marshall describes "excitement" in dressing room

Read from the Wolves loanee after Tuesday's 2-0 win...

13 April 2018

Millwall winger Ben Marshall believes The Lions "can't seem to do anything wrong at the minute" after the club moved inside the Sky Bet Championship's top six with a 2-0 win at Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night.

The loanee scored his third goal since joining from Wolves in January in the midweek win and also provided an assist for Tom Elliott's opening goal.

Speaking to millwallfc.co.uk following the club's seventh away win in eight, Marshall spoke of the squad's 'want' to claim a top six spot, whilst also praising Mahlon Romeo, who provided the 27-year-old with a lung-busting assist in the second half.

"It's what we've wanted [to get into the top six]. It's a tough place to come with Bolton trying to avoid relegation, but the boys did great. We dug in and managed to get all three points.

"I didn't keep up with Mahlon, he slowed down and I caught up with him! I carried on my run and luckily it broke to me and I managed to put it into the net. When they go in, they seem to go in in a bunch. I've managed to chip in with a few assists and a few goals so it's nice for me at the moment."

Marshall, who is an ever-present since signing on loan, is yet to taste defeat in a Lions shirt - a run he hopes to continue with a confident squad, beginning with this Saturday's trip to Bramall Lane as Millwall take on fellow Play-Off contenders Sheffield United.

"I've not experienced defeat yet, hopefully it can keep on going like that. It's in our hands now, it's up to us to get the results, but the feeling around the dressing room is one of excitement. We feel we've got nothing to lose. We can just keep doing what we're doing, keep getting three points and it'll all come.

"There's a confidence there. When we went 2-0 up on Tuesday, we had a couple more chances. I had one I should've done better with, but the confidence is there for all to see - stringing a few passes together, a few tricks here and there. We can't seem to do anything wrong at the minute."
