Football League World’s Millwall fan pundit Sam Scott has offered his assessment of Jed Wallace’s start to the season, with the former Portsmouth man having racked up seven goals and four assists so far for the Lions.
The right winger has been Millwall’s leading light in what has been a turbulent start to the season for the south Londoners, with a poor start to the campaign having seen Neil Harris depart, before Gary Rowett arrived in his place at the New Den.

Rowett has started well since arriving at the club, with Wallace being the main protagonist behind their upturn in form, with goals such as his strike against Swansea City proving crucial of late.
We caught up with Scott last week and here is what the Millwall fan pundit had to say about the 25-year-old’s start:
“Jed Wallace has really come into his own this season.
“He has been impeccable this season, adding goals and a lot more creativity to his game.
“It’s going to be a real struggle to keep hold of him if he keeps up this form through the season.”
Our fan pundit then outlined what he felt was Wallace’s best position, with the wide man having played in various roles since moving to the club:
“Right wing is probably his best position, although he is also just as effective when playing in a number ten role in behind the strikers, as this allows him to be more of a nuisance for centre backs.
“Overall his game has come on leaps and bounds since joining and I can only see him getting better and better with us.”
It remains to be seen if Wallace will indeed seek a move away from the New Den in the near future, however for the time being the 25-year-old will be keen to continue his strong form as Millwall continue to move up the league standings.
