Tyler Burey scored his first professional goal for Millwall in the 2-0 win against Queens Park Rangers.

Burey replaced the injured Oliver Burke in the first-half and found the net after 64 minutes, when he cut inside and wrapped the ball past David Marshall to double the home advantage.

“It’s an experience I want to relive! It was just great. My emotions were high. It was good to get on and take my chance. It was the only big chance I had in the game. It was good to score and get the most time I’ve had out on the pitch.”

Jed Wallace found the 21-year-old with a skillful flick, and Burey confidently revealed he knew exactly where he was going to guide the ball before he had possession. 

“I got the ball and took a touch - I knew where I was gonna put it; that far corner. I do it every day in training, I knew where I was going to shoot before I recieved the ball.”

Having been involved in Gary Rowett's last seven squads, Burey was keen to take his chance in a London derby.

“I was ready and prepared. I’ve been on the bench a lot, so I knew I had to be ready whenever I got the call. When it’s your time, it’s your time. Tonight was my time.”

The forward spent the first-half of the season on loan at League Two Hartlepool United, where he scored three goals in seven outings.

“I’ve come back with a lot of confidence. I got game time at Hartlepool. Now, my confidence has been boosted again with a goal. I just have to keep going. I have to keep working hard and keep learning."
