Tom Elliott is ready to seize his chance in the Championship with Millwall.

Elliott, 26, signed a two-year deal with the club earlier this summer, and scored two goals on his Den debut against Stevenage.

The former AFC Wimbledon striker is competing with prolific duo Steve Morison and Lee Gregory for a starting place.

He said: “I knew they are two great players. I want to play and take every chance I get, but I’m here to learn off those two as well and learn off the gaffer.

“The more I can learn the better chance it gives me to play more games. I do want to play, I’m not going to hide that. But I l know they are two great strikers who score goals, eighteen and nineteen last season.

“I’ll never sulk, I’ll always keep working hard and when I get my chance I’ll take it. I’m 26 now and I think I can keep going and keep learning. I hope I can make myself an established Championship striker and an established Millwall striker.”

Gregory was subbed off with a hamstring complaint in the Carabao Cup win over Stevenage on Tuesday, so Elliott could partner Morison up front when the Lions host Bolton on Saturday.

Millwall are looking to get off the mark in the Championship after narrowly losing to Nottingham Forest in their Championship opener.

Elliott added: “I haven’t played up front with Moro yet but I’d love to because he’s a clever player.

“In training, he talks to me and gives me guidance. If the gaffer puts me on the team sheet I’ll be buzzing, but if he puts me on the bench I’ll be shouting in his ear to put me on!

“I played against Bolton last year. They’ve got some big defenders but if Moro and I play up front we’d frighten a few defenders. If it’s coming off the bench or starting I’ll be raring to go.”
