Millwall boss Neil Harris has singled Jiří Skalák out for special praise in recent weeks - and now the winger himself says he has the confidence to make his mark as a Lion in 2019/20.

Skalák, who arrived at The Den from Brighton & Hove Albion last summer, had a frustrating first season with the club, making just 20 appearances in all competitions.

But the 27-year-old worked incredibly hard during the off season in preparation for he and his team-mates' return to Calmont Road in late June, and Skalák is reaping the rewards of his commitment and desire to impress having featured prominently during friendly fixtures and once again becoming a key part of the manager's plans.

"Last year was a tough season for me after two tough seasons with Brighton as well," he said.

"I didn't play a lot so I knew over the summer I didn't need a rest. My agent sorted me a fitness coach and I worked really hard every day, so let's see if I get something back. 

"I feel really good and maybe I haven't felt like that for a while. I'm happy with that.

"My confidence is back as well. The lads have helped and the gaffer is happy with me. Every player needs that. 

"I feel good for myself because I know I've worked really hard and I get confidence from there. I'll get more if I'm scoring goals and making passes and I know that's coming."
