Malone aiming to become regular starter in Millwall side

SCOTT Malone is hoping his recent performances will help to establish him as a regular starter for Millwall throughout the course of the season.

With fellow left back Shane Lowry serving a three-match ban, Malone returned to the Lions side for the win over Blackpool last week before playing another 90 minutes at Charlton.

The 22-year-old will play against Leeds United at The Den on Saturday – but then Lowry will be available for selection again, giving boss Steve Lomas a selection headache.

Malone said: "I have set a marker for myself, which is to stay in the team until the next international break in October. I will get my rest in over those two weeks and then go again – my goal after that is to reach 15 starts.

"I'm taking things three or four games at a time, but the ultimate aim to finish the season with 35-40 appearances."

Having ended their home hoodoo against Blackpool earlier this month, Malone believes the Lions have no reason to fear playing in front of their own fans.

"Before we beat Blackpool, it had been something like two years since we'd last come back from a 1-0 deficit at home to win a game," he said. "The fans showed that they are right behind us so I don't think we should have any fear of playing at The Den

"Leeds lost against Burnley last weekend so they'll be looking to bounce back, but we're full of confidence and we're right up for it, so hopefully we can make it three wins in a row and push towards the top ten."

      @Loudest-in-BLK45: agree with you there loudest when we got Lowry I'm sure he was bought to play CB and I reckon he is stronger there than LB

    Lowry is without doubt a totally committed player, just have concerns over his too frequently reckless tackles, especially as We have only just begun to win with a full 11 on the park.
    we need to try to maintain as much stability as possible so not certain he would be my CB choice at the moment!
    Pleased Malone has found his form, as previously said, definitely the best LB we have.

      @bonnie1272: you should get to more home games to keep up with who's collecting Red and Yellow cards.

    Much more of a natural LB than Lowry, but even at CB Lowry wouldn't get in the team ahead of Robbo/Beevers(when back from injury)/Osbourne/Shittu. Is better going forward than Lowry and is more composed, not to mention miles ahead in terms of distribution and technical ability.

    Well done Scotty for coming back and showing you want the shirt!

    As for Lowry he is a centre half and should NEVER be played at left back again after all the mistakes he has made!
