New recruit reflects on first few weeks at Millwall



Millwall striker Mason Bennett has reflected on the first few weeks at The Den after starting his first game against Birmingham City in midweek.

The forward came on against Wigan Athletic last weekend before being given the nod to start as part of the front three alongside Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Jed Wallace.

Speaking to the official Millwall website, Bennett stated: “It’s been a few weeks since I signed at the club. I was just getting little niggles and I was just delighted to get on the pitch, the fans were great and I got a great response from them.

“The lads have been great, the staff have been great and it was nice to get out there. I feel sharp, I felt sharp in training for the past couple of weeks. I’m just trying to transform that onto the pitch, help the team get three points and climb up the table.

“We’ve got some great team cohesion, everyone sticks together, there’s a great team spirit which I thrive off and I love it.”

The game against Birmingham ended 0-0 as the Lions remain underdogs for the play-off spots.

1, Which Millwall player was born in Shrewsbury, England on July 27 1992?

He signed on loan from Derby County during the January transfer window as Phillip Cocu looks to give him the senior football he needs.

Manager Gary Rowett made the brave decision last week to leave him out of the under-23 game against Crystal Palace and instead give him the opportunity to make his debut on the Saturday when the Lions travelled north to Wigan.

Bennett progressed through the ranks at Derby and made his way into the record books in 2011 when he became the Rams’ youngest-ever player at the age of 15 years and 99 days.

He has gone on to have loan spells with Chesterfield, Bradford City, Burton Albion and Notts County.

The Verdict

Bennett has impressed for Millwall since returning from injury and he will want to maintain his spot within the starting XI.

He has a lot to prove at The Den as he looks to show Cocu that he is good enough to do it on a regular basis in the Championship while helping out his loan club across the short-term as they aim for the play-offs.
