LEE Gregory says his goal against Brentford owed a lot to Ed Upson's inch-perfect pass – and admits that's exactly the kind of service he thrives on.
Gregory took Upson's chipped through ball in his stride, rounded goalkeeper David Button and slotted the Lions into the lead at Griffin Park to finish off a well-worked move.
"Neil Harris was telling us before the game that Brentford would be quite open at the back so we wanted to get balls over the top a lot quicker than we have been doing," Gregory said.
"That's what we did and we got a lot of joy from that.
"For the goal, I saw Aiden O'Brien set the ball back to Ed and I got on my bike – the pass made it for me because it enticed the 'keeper to come out.
"It made me it a lot easier for me, so credit to Ed for the through ball."
Gregory has often been starved of service this season – but hopes Harris' style of play will lead to him getting more chances.
"That's the type of player I am – on the shoulder looking for through balls or little passes over the top," he added.
"That's exactly what Ed gave me on Saturday. And it wasn't an aimless ball forward, he knew where I was going to be and he put the ball right where I wanted it.
"I've not really had much of that this season.
"Recently I've started getting a lot of chances, which I'm happy about, although I have missed a few of them. Everyone misses chances and at least I'm getting in good positions.
"When you miss a chance, it gets you down in the dumps. If I was missing chances but the team was winning, then I wouldn't be as bothered.
"When we're losing and I miss a chance, it does get on me a little bit. But as a striker you need to forget about them.
"Each game is different and you have to focus on taking your opportunities in the next game.
"I want to make more chances because the more chances you create, the more goals you score. When you're only getting one chance or a half-chance, it's tough."
