Late summer signing Angel has described his debut in our win against Brighton and Hove Albion as the ‘first step’ of many in his life at Millwall.

Having left Blackpool over the summer, the 28 year old joined us in September as a free agent already knowing manager Ian Holloway, and since he came in he has been hampered with a troublesome calf injury.

The Spaniard in now fully fit and got a good run out in our last game, and speaking to the official site after making his bow, he said he’s now looking to build on that and show the fans what Holloway has brought to the club.

‘As a football player I feel useful again. I came here really excited to play as soon as possible so to get an injury was so sad for me and my family. It was so difficult, but in your mind you have to stay calm and keep working hard all the time.’

He goes on to say that facing off against Brighton was the ‘first step’ of many for him now and he was delighted to be back on the pitch properly following his injury troubles, but given he didn’t get a pre season so it was the first time he had properly played alongside Scott McDonald and Shaun Williams, he felt he did quite well, but as he gets fitter, more confident, learns about his team mates and plays himself into some form he’s tipped himself to only get better over the coming months.

‘It’s not easy to play your first game in December and I’m going to have to improve and grow. Personally it wasn’t my best game, but I think I will adapt more and get better every day. I just felt really happy that I could help the team to win.’

And an important victory it was as well.
