MILLWALL signing Lee Gregory has backed himself to be a goalscoring hit in the Championship.
The striker completed a £250,000-move from Halifax Town on Tuesday, signing a three-year deal with the Lions.
Gregory, a full-time electrician prior to his Den switch, believes he can provide the spark up front to power a play-off push next season.
And he has revealed that manager Ian Holloway's ambition for the future convinced him to put pen-to-paper.
"Holloway isn't the type of manner to be at the bottom of the league,” Gregory told the Southwark News.
“I think we can push for the top six."
Gregory added: "Ollie made a massive difference. He was by far the best manager I spoke to – he sold the club to me.
“Holloway told me the truth from the start.
"I spoke to him on the phone before I came down and I knew as soon as I spoke to him that I wanted to be at Millwall.
“The club were the biggest that came in for me and I felt moving here was a massive opportunity to progress."
Gregory scored 31 goals in 39 games for the Shaymen last year and believes he can make the step up from the Conference to the Championship.
He said: “I’m very confident I can make the step up.
"I might be a little behind with my fitness going into pre-season, but as soon as I have that back I believe in my ability to get me through.
“The manager has brought me in to score goals. Hopefully I can repay him, produce what I need to and bang in a load of goals.
Millwall's fixture list for the 2014-15 season was revealed yesterday and there is one away day that Gregory is looking forward to more than most.
"I'm a Sheffield United fan so I would love to score against Wednesday at Hillsborough," he said. "That's a big local game for me.
“I'm also looking forward to Derby County because I trained there a few years ago and it was a great ground. I'm excited to play there.
“Every ground is obviously going to be a new experience for me and I'm looking forward to visiting each and every one of them.
When asked if he can make the grade in front of goal in a higher devision, akin to the likes of Charlie Austin and Jamie Vardy, Gregory added:
“Why not? It’s been done before and it can be done again.”
Gregory’s new boss Holloway added: “I’m very pleased to get Lee.
“He's been on our radar and he scored 31 goals last year.
“It’s a few divisions down but I think he's a natural goal scorer.
“I’m delighted to have been allowed to add him to our club,
“Hopefully it will turn out just as Morison did for us, and it’ll be an opportunity for us to score more goals.
“I met him on Monday, he’s a nice lad – I’m really pleased to give him a chance to be apart of what I want to do at Millwall.”
