Marshall claims Lions are "starting to believe"

Loanee winger settles in at The Den...

20 March 2018

Lions loanee Ben Marshall has stated the feeling in the camp is "really good" after Millwall equalled a club record with a 2-0 victory at Barnsley last Saturday.

Marshall - with a stunning curling effort - and Lee Gregory were on target in the success over The Tykes, a win that secured a sixth consecutive Sky Bet Championship away victory and also launched The Lions to within four points of a place in the top six.

The winger has scored two goals in eight appearances since arriving on loan from League leaders Wolves and has impressed the Den faithful with a string of fine performances.

Speaking on the weekend's win, Marshall said: "I thought we started the game really well and took them by surprise. Gregs was a threat in behind.

"In the second-half we were under the cosh and didn't really keep the ball well, but I managed to score the second goal out of nothing. Some of those go in, some don't - luckily, that did."

The Lions can set a new record with victory at Ipswich Town on Easter Monday - but the 26-year-old, who credits "a great bunch" of players for helping him settle in, claims all the team can do is keep winning games.

"The lads have helped me settle in. They're a great bunch. As a player you're going to play under different managers with different styles of play - the quicker you adapt, the quicker you'll play.

"I had it in my head what it was going to be like at Millwall with the way they play. I stuck to that and I've played quite a lot games.

"Since I've been here, the feeling has been really good. We're starting to believe a little bit now. All we can do is keep picking up results and see where it takes us.

"Obviously we are aware of the record. It means a lot to the club. But our main focus is winning games to try and get promoted. That's all our mindset should be. It's a great achievement, though."
