Striker Aiden O’Brien has said that Millwall should be aiming higher than sixth place following the weekend’s victory over Chesterfield.

Making the trip to the Proact Stadium on Saturday to play out a two one victory with O’Brien grabbing the equaliser on the day, and Lee Gregory growing his goal tally for the season by one as well, O’Brien was speaking to the media following the game and his aim is clear for the year.

The South London Press have him quoted following the match as saying that the aim will be to do everything we can now to stay in the Play Off spots with victory putting us up there, but he feels that with how Millwall have shown improvement from August, we should be aiming to do more than just stay in sixth spot.

With the game being O’Brien’s eleventh of the season – in what is his full season – he’s joint top league scorer with eight alongside Gregory, whose own tally is at 14 in all competitions.

With that goal threat in the ranks, amongst others like Steve Morison, O’Brien was confident of a successful second half of the season. One thing he wasn’t overly concerned about though was taking the top scorer gong in his own right.

‘As long as we are winning, I don`t mind. This is my first proper season and I am playing on the left, which is a disadvantage. Being top scorer is not the be-all and end-all. I would love to end up there but results is the important thing.’

With his leveller coming from his head, he said that was particularly pleasing as his heading is something he’s working on.

‘I was happy with the goal because it was a header and I know I need to work on them – they are not my strongest point. We came from behind which shows we never lose faith. We are at the business end of the season so it is hard to go away and get wins. We have strong-minded players, who always want to win. There is a good team spirit – there are a lot of jokers, of which I am one. It is good to have a laugh but it has to be at the right time. The top six is where we are capable of being. Now we need to stay there. We will do everything we can to be there from now on. We want to go on and on and on now. We have players who are good enough.’
