Romeo talks Stoke, Reading and playing under Rowett

Right-back talks after his 150th Millwall appearance

31 October 2019

Mahlon Romeo has surpassed 150 outings in a Millwall shirt - and the full-back is keen to continue in a good vein of form for The Lions following victory over Stoke City.

Romeo made his landmark appearance in Gary Rowett's debut League contest against The Potters, and is pleased with a marked improvement.

"It was a really good game on Saturday - we couldn't really have asked for much more than a win and a clean sheet," the defender said to millwallfc.co.uk.

"We really improved from recent performances and it was a comfortable win in the end.

"They changed their shape after half-time to be more attacking, and we kept them at bay well, and Hutch has come in and put in some top displays putting his head and body in where it's needed."

Romeo has predominantly shared the right flank with Jed Wallace in recent seasons, and pays tribute to the winger during his exceptional run of form.

"Jed is a huge boost to this team.

"I don't know how he runs so much, to be honest! When he won the penalty, I was blowing, so I really don't know where he found that second wind from."

The right-back finally touches on his milestone, and credits the way matters are moving forward under Rowett as we prepare to visit Reading this weekend.

"Of course, there are adjustments in the team under the new manager that we're all getting used to, and it's going well.

"We have the full week of focus on Reading and we'll be confident going into the game, and we're looking to build on the positives from our last away trip to Brentford.

"I'm proud to make 150 appearances, and I'll look to carry on as far as I can."
