Gary Rowett: Lions striker Tom Bradshaw’s goal is reward for his hard work


Gary Rowett reckons Tom Bradshaw’s goal in today’s 1-0 win at Derby was the rewards for his graft in a Millwall shirt.

The forward had not netted since the end of October but struck in the first period at Pride Park – latching on to Shaun Hutchinson’s lofted ball to fire beyond County keeper Ben Hamer.

Lions boss Rowett said: “We’ve said to him to be a little bit more of a threat – he’s learning the system as well as the other players.

“It’s a little bit difficult as that striker, although he’s got two supporting him, to get into the right areas. He took it well. Great touch – the header has just taken it across the defender,  it’s that little bit of opening the space and a brilliant finish.

“I’m pleased for Bradders – he has deserved that for all his hard work.

“I felt if our final pass had been better we’d have had more opportunities today. It just wasn’t quite there.”
