Tom Bradshaw says he is ‘hungry’ to score plenty of goals for Millwall, and backs himself to achieve a lot of scoring success at The Den.
Manager Neil Harris secured the signing of Bradshaw last month, and the Wales striker has since made five Lions appearances including two starts as he adapts to life at the club.
“It’s gone really well so far, as well as I had expected after speaking to the gaffer,” the 26-year-old tells millwallfc.co.uk.
“I’ve got used to the surrounding area, which I knew quite well anyway from coming down to see my girlfriend, and I’ve really enjoyed my first few weeks.
“Training has been intense and I’ve really enjoyed it. I think I’ve managed to get into my head what the gaffer wants from me and understanding the way Millwall play, and I’ve enjoyed getting some game time. Hopefully I can get my first goal soon.”
Whilst Bradshaw was Cup-tied in midweek as The Lions bowed out of the Carabao Cup against Fulham, the striker claims he is feeling ready for the weekend clash with Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United.
“I’ve felt sharp in training this week, and in the games I’ve played. Hopefully the results will turn, and that I can be a part of that.”
Bradshaw will be looking to open his Lions goalscoring account this weekend, and is looking to improve on a 12-goal tally with Barnsley last season – the last of which was a late winner against The Blades last April.
“Something I was really keen on before coming to Millwall was becoming that striker who scores a lot of goals in The Championship.
“I scored 12 last year but that’s not what I want – I have higher targets than that – so I’m hungry to score as many as I possibly can in a Millwall shirt.
“I’ve always backed myself to score goals, it’s something I’ve always loved doing. To me, it’s the best part of football, and I want to make The Den go wild if I get the chance on Saturday.”
