Loanee Mason happy to adapt

SPURS loanee Ryan Mason says he does not care where boss Kenny Jackett plays him – as long as Millwall start to climb up the table.

The 20-year-old midfielder has featured both centrally and wide on the left in three appearances for the Lions. And while he admits he favours a central role, he insists he is happy to slot in anywhere – as are the rest of his teammates.

"Everyone needs to come together at this point," he told the club's official website. "Whoever the gaffer picks, the players will support that. We all want the same thing – for the team to win matches.

"I'm a central player, that's where I'm most comfortable. I think I can affect games from there. If the gaffers chooses to play me out wide, I'll give all I've got for the team and that's the way it is. I class myself as a goalscorer and hopefully I can bring something to the team.

"I've not had a game at this level for three months, so it might take me a little while to adjust. But my performances in training have been getting better and hopefully they can get better on the pitch as well.

"Reserve teams are all about developing players – but here you're playing for three points every week. There's a lot more pressure.  We need points in our current situation and hopefully the win at Southampton will give us the confident to help get them."
