No excuses for Millwall's Gregory as he vows to "step up"

LEE Gregory has admitted he hasn't yet reached the level he was at last season.  

Gregory, who celebrated his 27th birthday on Wednesday, was the top scorer for the Lions last term following his switch from non-league FC Halifax.

He opened his account this campaign with a penalty winner at Shrewsbury Town in the first game of the season, but missed from the spot after just four minutes in the 4-0 defeat to Coventry.

Gregory started as part of a three-man attack in the scoreless draw at Scunthorpe and he is hoping to get back on the scoring trail against Chesterfield this weekend.

“On a personal level my performances haven’t been as good as what they should be,” he said. “I’m just putting that down to just getting back into it.

“They haven’t been up to the level that they were towards the end of last season. I missed a lot of pre-season so it could be that.

“I’ve had a few niggles here and there but I’m not trying to blame anything. I just need to step up my game, I know that, and hopefully on Saturday I can go and nick a goal and we’ll go on and win.”

After three defeats in a row at The Den this season, Gregory wants to send Lions fans home in a happier mood this weekend.

He said: “I enjoyed last Saturday a lot more than the previous two games. The first home game wasn’t the best game but we’ve just got to get on with it.

“If we beat ourselves up too much it’ll just affect our game later on. We just have to dust ourselves down and build on last weekend.

“We owe it to the fans as well, we need to put a performance in at home and I think we will this Saturday.”

    388 pitch time minutes and 1 goal from the penalty spot says it all.
    A goal and a win on Saturday would work wonders.

      @ohcomeallyefaithful: ffs, stop with the stats! Football is not played on paper. Watch his f****** performances! He runs himself to the ground every game causing panic in a lot of defences. That's about all he can do coz, let's face it, he gets possibly the worst service he could get. What are you supposed to do when the midfield and defence just aimlessly lump it up there? For what he's got, he's doing a pretty good job (let's forget the coventry game happened. Everyone has bad days) and people criticising him because of a couple numbers they read somewhere surely doesn't help.
