Millwall attacker leads way on key attacking stats – but there is no sense of satisfaction at current numbers

Zian Flemming is top of Millwall’s key attacking stats but that does not mean that the former Fortuna Sittard attacker is happy with his 2023-24 season.

The Lions number 10 scored from the penalty spot in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Southampton.

Flemming is leading the club’s goal charts with six – one more than summer signing Kevin Nisbet – and also has the most assists (four).

Flemming has created 33 chances – the most in the squad.

They look respectable numbers considering that Millwall are at the wrong end of the table and scrapping to stay in the Championship.

“Those seasons which the team goes through are the hardest ones,” Flemming told the South London Press before the Southampton match. “Also for a player like me, I want to decide games and score goals. If we’re struggling as a team that is always going to be harder – to make that difference.

“I know this, but I tend not to look at it this way because I always try and spin things around. All I can do is look in the mirror and tell myself: “If I somehow manage to get more goals and more assists that will obviously mean we score more goals”.

“I’m looking at it from a personal perspective for me. I’m not going to look at it and say: ‘I’m top goalscorer – that’s still decent’. I’ve got my own standards and those are higher than where I am right now.

“I won’t stop until I get where I want it to be, even though it is harder. It also makes it a bigger challenge but I also like challenges, so that could be a good fit.”
