RICHARD Chaplow was delighted to make an immediate impact on his Millwall debut and is hoping to get more minutes under his belt after a frustrating season.
The midfielder, on loan from Southampton, provided the assist for Jermaine Easter's opening goal in the Lions' 2-0 win over South London rivals Charlton at The Valley on Saturday.
And the 28-year-old is eager to make his mark at The Den having found opportunities limited at the Saints in the wake of their promotion to the Premier League last year.
"It was a massive three points for the club," Chaplow said. "If we'd lost on Saturday we would have been only a couple of points clear of the relegation zone, and obviously no one wants that.
"Now we've got a few games in hand and a win tops off a great week for the club. From a personal point of view, it was nice to get a few minutes under my belt and to have a hand in the first goal.
"I'd only trained for 45 minutes so I am sure I will learn more about Kenny Jackett as we go on. The impression I get is that he's very passionate – no one in the game has a bad word to say about him.
"I've been involved for most of the season at Southampton but mainly just on the bench. It's been frustrating and I want to play games, so I needed to go out on loan and Millwall is a great club."
