Jayson Molumby provided an outstanding assist for Aiden O'Brien's winning goal at The Den on Sunday afternoon - and then praised his team-mates and Millwall fans as The Lions returned to winning ways in SE16 with a 1-0 victory over Brentford.

After having a Murray Wallace goal disallowed for offside, just minutes later, Molumby relentlessly chased down Bees goalkeeper David Raya, before winning the ball from the stopper and allowing O'Brien a chance to fire into an empty net.

At the age of just 20, the Irishman's will to play football with controlled aggression, quality and passion is clear for all to see - and in loving life in South London, the midfielder told following the final whistle of the "brilliant" feeling in gaining another three points.

"It was a brilliant feeling to get that win over the line, credit to the boys," he said. "It was a hard shift, but we deserved it.

"I was buzzing, it was great to contribute to the team and get the three points. The gaffer told us before the game that he wanted us to start quickly, get in their faces and not give them any time on the ball. The fans play a big part here, and they did again [on Sunday]."

Brentford were unable to cope with The Lions' high pressing game for around an hour of the contest, and Molumby expressed how that began with Millwall's front three of goalscorer O'Brien, Tom Bradshaw and Jed Wallace.

"It started from the three boys up front and carried on with myself and Willo, pressing high up the pitch. The manager told us that the crowd love it when we work hard and show aggression, and they came on board with us and got us over the line."
