Tom Bradshaw is a man in form; back-to-back goals and five goal contributions in his last six outings which includes his bullet header at the weekend against Birmingham.
Murray Wallace set Millwall on their way to three points, before Bradshaw nodded The Lions two goals to the good before half-time.
“I think it was one of our most positive performances of the season. We got control of the game early doors and bar the five-minute spell following their goal, I felt we kept control of the whole game.”
“We made loads of chances and probably could have scored more on another day.”
The 29-year-old thumped home Scott Malone’s corner with his head, and Millwall’s first goal came from a corner routine – something the Lions had been working on in training, Bradshaw revealed.
“I don’t think I’m the main threat from corners! I just drifted into the middle of the box, and I was lucky it dropped just over Coops and just in front of Hutchy. I tried to guide it, and it went in!”
“It was really good to get that early goal, especially as it was something we had worked on in training. It settled the nerves and the second put us in a brilliant position at half-time.”
Troy Deeney pulled a goal back for The Blues, but George Evans' wonderful strike ensured victory and a response to last week’s defeat to Hull City.
“It’s nice to be playing and for the team to be doing well. It was important to bounce back after the result last week against Hull. We’re doing really well at home at the moment, we just need to add a bit of that to our away form.”
“Naturally, after their goal, nerves are slightly higher. When you have a two-goal cushion it feels comfortable and then as soon as they pull one back momentum swings a little bit. The third goal settled us back down. It was a great finish from Evo!”
The Lions travel to The Weston Homes Stadium this weekend to take on Peterborough and Bradshaw is keen to keep in touching distance of the play-off places.
“As I said, we’ve been good at home. We need to improve our away form. We want to try and get three points and stick as close to the top six as we can.”
