Molumby confident of bringing international form to Lions

Midfielder discusses successful break with Irish Under 21s and Blackburn trip

13 September 2019

Jayson Molumby has spoken of his exploits whilst on international duty, and says he is feeling at his sharpest after regaining match fitness.

The Brighton & Hove Albion loanee has made cameo appearances in a Millwall shirt whilst recapturing his 90-minute sharpness, and captained the Irish Under 21 side to two victories in the past week with inspired displays.

“The international break was great, I got two full games under my belt and the team did really well,” Molumby said to millwallfc.co.uk.

“We won both games and that’s three wins out of three for us now, and we’ll be looking to build on what we’ve done so far in the next internationals.

“This comes after a good Toulon Tournament, so spirits are high in the Irish camp and we’re building a positive future.”

The 20-year-old has won the praises of many Millwall fans since joining the club on a season-long loan from The Seagulls, and claims he feels ready to fully battle for a place in Neil Harris’ side.

“I’m confident this can come across into my club form.

“I feel ready to go, and hopefully I can get a few chances in the team over the coming weeks and play a few games for Millwall.

“After these last few weeks I feel like I’m up to speed now and as fit as I can be. Obviously, I had a slow start with my quad injury and everything, but I’ve built up the minutes gradually with the gaffer and they’ve done the right thing. I feel sharp now.”

The Lions now prepare to visit Ewood Park on Saturday to take on Blackburn Rovers – an opponent Molumby is aware of the threat of, but is confident the team can take a positive result.

“Every team in The Championship is tough to take on,” the midfielder says.

“This is a very tough League to get points in – one of the toughest in fact. We need to go there and hopefully come away with a win, that’s what we’ll be aiming for.

“We have to go into every game with the goal to get the three points – that’s the main thing for us.”
