MARTYN Woolford wants to establish himself as one of the first names on Steve Lomas' teamsheet after breaking into the Millwall side this season.
The winger, 28, made a disjointed start to his career at The Den last term, making mostly substitute appearances under Kenny Jackett following his January move from Bristol City.
But Woolford has been a revelation this season and is currently the club's joint-top scorer in all competitions with four goals.
And he now plans to cement his place in the Lions XI for the long term.
"I am working hard to get better and better and ensure that I am one of the first names on the teamsheet," he said.
"I've set myself a target of scoring ten goals this season and I think that is still achievable.
"Hopefully I have showed so far to the manager and fans that I am worthy of the shirt and I am determined to keep improving."
Woolford's form dipped in November but was thrilled that Lomas kept him in the side.
"I was over the moon with the manager's faith in me," he added. "I knew that my form had tailed off – I'll be the first to admit it – but you're going to get that during a season.
"I've found with previous managers that they tend to lose faith in me pretty quickly. The manager sticking with me, even though I hadn't been as good, has given me a big boost."
