Gary Rowett heaped praise on Tom Bradshaw after the striker netted twice during Millwall’s win over Stoke at The Den on Saturday.
It was the second time in his Millwall career that the striker has netted twice in a game – he scored twice in a 2-2 draw with Cardiff in 2019.
“Bradders is such an honest lad, if I told him to go and play right-back he’d do it with every ounce of energy he’s got – and commitment,” Rowett said.
“He presses really well. That’s why he’s come back into the team – because he presses so well from the front. I think he’s the type of player that makes other players look better, sometimes to his own detriment because he works so hard for the team.
“So for him to work so hard and get the two goals as well, he’s in the right position, he drifts away from defenders in the box and it came at a time when we needed something to change.
“The change had the desired effect. I felt when there was chaos in the match we looked like we thrived a little bit more than Stoke did. As soon as we scored the goal it looked like we were more comfortable with the game swinging end to end and fortunately we got another goal.”
