Bradshaw on "vital" role in Millwall side

Read from Saturday's match-winner

16 December 2019

Tom Bradshaw has claimed that Millwall's 1-0 Sky Bet Championship victory over Derby County on Saturday afternoon was "the sign of a good team."

The striker notched his eighth goal of the campaign at Pride Park with a thumping finish, equalling the red-hot Jed Wallace in the scoring stakes, before The Lions held firm in the second-half to claim a third away victory in four.

Speaking to millwallfc.co.uk after the three points had been captured, Bradshaw explained how he had actually forgotten most of the moment.

"I can't really remember much about it, to be honest!" he said. "I remember seeing the ball come in and heading it over the defender's shoulder, but I can't remember much after that.

"The next thing I know I did was run over towards the fans with a big knee slide. I enjoyed it nonetheless, and it was great to get the goal and the win."

"The first-half was a good team performance and the second-half was more of a grind, but that's what you have to do in The Championship sometimes, especially when you take the lead. I think that's a sign of a good team, when you're under the cosh for 25-30 minutes but keep solid and don't give many chances away. We've got another massive three points."

The switch to a 5-2-3 formation has quickly paid off on the road - and the 27-year-old expressed his enjoyment in the role he operates in, whilst also stating that is imperative to not get carried away after The Lions extended their unbeaten run to seven matches.

"I'm enjoying it - it's a role that is vital for the team. I've done it a few times before in my career, so I'm not alien to it all. I enjoy working hard for the team, and if I can keep getting goals then I'll enjoy it even more.

"We're taking every game as it comes and not getting carried away with results. We're not thinking we're Barcelona, we know what we do well, and we've done it really well in the last six or seven weeks. We've applied ourselves and everyone is working as hard as they can for the team - the results are showing that."
