Millwall winger on 'world-class' finish – and Leeds keeper asking him his plans Saturday night

TOM Bradshaw’s goal against Leeds United was “world-class”, in the opinion of Jed Wallace.

Bradshaw got in front of Luke Ayling (above) to flick home Shane Ferguson’s cross to put the Lions 2-0 up against the Whites at The Den on Saturday.

Wallace had earlier scored from the spot after Bradshaw had been fouled by Guetano Berardi, who was shown a straight red card.



Wallace revealed the amusing way goalkeeper Kiko Casilla tried to put him off, but it was in vain as the winger found the top corner from 12 yards.

Leeds pulled a goal back after the break through Ezgjan Alioski, but the Lions saw the game out for their first win in eight league fixtures.

“Bradders is going to get a shot on goal and he’s pulled him down. Obviously he had to send him off as well,” Wallace said.

“They tried to delay it, the keeper was trying mind games. He asked me what I liked to drink in the afternoons, how I was and what I was up to tonight. I just ignored him, put it in and ran off.

“We were 2-0 up at half-time and tried our hardest to mess it up straight away from the kick-off. To be fair I don’t think they had a chance after that. I know they had a lot of the ball but we’re not a possession-based team and we held out and got there in the end.”

It was Bradshaw’s fourth goal of the season.

Wallace added: “It was genuinely world-class. I’m not exaggerating, it was an unbelievable finish. It was a great ball in from Fergie and the finish is unbelievable. He just took all the power off the ball and put it in the corner. He’s got that.

"I think the fans have been frustrated not seeing more of him but he’s had a long-term injury and you can’t just come flying back and play every minute of every game. You’ve got to build yourself up and his last two performances he’s looked razor-sharp.

“He’s going to score a lot of goals for this football club.”
