LEE Gregory feels "much more confident" now that he has scored his first and second goals for Millwall.
Gregory, a £250,000 summer signing from Halifax Town, spoke last month of his frustration at a lack of opportunities in Ian Holloway's line up.
But the striker has started the Lions' last three games and opened his account for the club with the consolation in a defeat to Birmingham before the international break.
Against Wolves on Saturday, Gregory's composed finish was the launchpad for a remarkable Millwall fightback as they rallied from 3-0 down to draw.
"We have not really had a fightback this year so it's good to get one under our belt," Gregory said after the game.
"Every goal I score on a personal level means a lot to me, but especially on Saturday.
"I had a couple of half chances, but that one finally bounced right for me and the keeper dived left quite early.
"To come back from 3-0 down, it's good to know that we've kicked on from my goal and got another two.
"I think I was lucky to get my first goal (against Birmingham) in such a short period of time. I was expecting to wait a little longer, so I surprised myself.
"That did settle me a lot. I feel so much more confident now. I feel part of the team and like I do deserve to be here.
"I'm happy to be playing and it's good to get goals."
Gregory hailed the impact of Ricardo Fuller after he came off the bench to score two superb goals and rescue a point for Holloway's side.
And the former non-league star admitted he enjoys having the Jamaican as a strike partner.
"In the first half I wasn't getting much of the ball until Ricardo came on and started winning those challenges, winning the headers," Gregory said.
"It varies from game to game but sometimes I do prefer playing in a front two and that was the case on Saturday.
"He makes a massive impact, especially when he comes on in games like this when the back four are quite strong and win the aerial battles.
"Ric's a strong guy, he always wins his headers, which I know he is going to.
"He does take a lot of pressure off me because instead of going for the challenge I can run off him.
"I like playing with Ric. He's experienced as well so it works for me. I learn a lot from him in training every day and in games."
In the first half, Gregory had a strong shout for a penalty turned down when right back Matt Doherty seemed to clip him in the area.
Asked whether he should have had a spot kick, the striker said: "100%. I just played it off to Scott McDonald and he took my back foot, it's as simple as that."
