MATTHEW Briggs is determined to build on his promising league debut for Millwall and show the club's fans what he can really do.
Briggs helped keep a clean sheet against Derby last weekend on his first Championship start – and nearly scored the winner when his swerving drive flashed just wide.
The left back made more tackles than any other Lions player on the day and he troubled the Rams' back four with several darting runs forward.
But the ex-Fulham trainee insists supporters have seen nothing yet.
"The fans definitely haven't seen the best of me," he told the Southwark News.
"When I get match fit, I can do a lot more. It was exciting to be in the team but I can't wait to show them what I can really do."
Briggs added: "Derby was my first league game so it was important that I produced a strong performance. I enjoyed the game.
"The manager told me to go forward as much as possible because Alan Dunne was going to hang back a little.
"That gave me the freedom to join in with the attacks.
"Scoring goals is definitely part of my game so it was a shame that my shot went wide. I like to get forward and I've got it in my locker to score goals.
"I just need to be given more chances."
Briggs previous two appearances were in the Capital One Cup – and he was sent off on his debut after scoring against Wycombe.
But the 23-year-old doesn't feel that his red card affected his chances of dislodging Scott Malone from the starting XI.
"I was happy after the game because the team won and I scored the goal," he said.
"Getting sent off is part of football so you have to move on.
"I have no regrets really, it was just emotion. I don't think that red card has held me back in any way because Malone was always going to be playing.
"Every player wants to play but I knew when I came here that Malone would be starting so I've had to be patient.
"The manager gave me chances in the cup games, which I'm grateful for, and hopefully now I've shown him I'm capable of playing in the league.
"I have played a couple of reserve games to keep my match fitness up so that I was ready when I got the shout.
"Since I came to Millwall I feel that the defensive side of my game has improved a lot. The manager has been helping me with one-on-one defending."
