Tom Bradshaw has expressed his satisfaction at scoring a brace on Friday afternoon as he led the line for Millwall's Under 23s in a 2-0 win over Watford at The Den.
The Wales striker hit two in the space of one minute – the first from the penalty spot – as Kevin Nugent’s young side went seven unbeaten in the Professional Development League South.
“I really enjoyed it today,” Bradshaw says.
“Since coming here there has obviously been competition for places, which is great for every player as it makes you need to improve and push yourself.
“The lads have done really well in the first team, so it’s just a matter of trying to impress, and taking my opportunity when it comes.”
Bradshaw has explained the importance of match sharpness after playing 71 minutes in the victory, and claims he is fully confident of scoring goals in any match situation.
“The first thing was to do the basics right here, get on the scoresheet, and keep pushing Gregs [Lee Gregory], Moro [Steve Morison] and Big T [Tom Elliott] for a starting place.
“It was definitely important to keep the match fitness. It was all about getting minutes on the pitch, keeping my sharpness up and being ready for when my turn comes in the first team.
“As I’ve always said, I’ll always back myself to score goals. Every striker wants to score goals regardless of what game it’s in, so whichever match I’m playing in, it’s important for me to be scoring as many as possible and keeping that confidence.”
