2.8 clearances per game: The Millwall ace making a strong impression in the Championship



Millwall’s return to the Sky Bet Championship has been a successful one, with Neil Harris’ side looking up the table, rather than over their shoulder like many expected.

The Lions currently sit 12th in the Championship table, with Harris’ side amongst the form sides in the division, having picked up four victories in their last five fixtures, which has all but freed them of relegation trouble heading into the final 12 fixtures.

One member of Harris’ squad who has impressed on their return to the Championship is Mahlon Romeo, with the young defender producing some excellent performances for the Lions.

Here at FLW, we take a look at the 22-year-old’s impact in the Championship this season:

Romeo has made 20 appearances this season for Millwall, scoring one goal, which came in the 3-1 victory over Sheffield United back in early December.

Defensively, Romeo has been sounds for Harris’ side, posting some impressive numbers from his 20 appearances.

The 22-year-old averages 1.6 tackles per game and also makes an average of 2.8 clearances every time he takes to the field.

In possession there is work to do for the youngster, but Romeo still averages 21.6 passes per game at a success rate of 61%.
