Jón Daði on adapting to left-sided role

The Icelander speaks...

21 February 2020

Millwall's Jón Daði Bödvarsson says his confidence is high after his recent run in the squad ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet Championship game (kick-off 3pm) against Wigan Athletic.

The forward has notoriously played as a number nine for his previous clubs, but in recent weeks, Bödvarsson has learnt to adapt his game as he features a lot more regularly on the left of the front three.

With four League goals to his name so far this season, the Icelandic most recently found the back of the net for The Lions in last week's 1-1 draw against Fulham. 

Reflecting on his recent form for the club, the 27-year-old says he is isn't fazed by playing in a slightly different position to what he's accustomed too and is keen to continue performing for The Lions.

"It's a position that I've played before and it really doesn't bother me that much because I'm almost like a centre-forward in that position, not so much a winger.

"I'm OK with it and I feel like I'm confident and doing really well in that position, even though I see myself playing more in the middle.

"It doesn't really bother me where I'm playing. It's been going great and I think it's a really good formation that we're playing at the moment."
