Goalkeeper Jordan Archer has said it was a dream start for him against Scunthorpe United as he kept a clean sheet on his senior league start for Millwall.

The 22 year old didn’t exactly have a quiet day at the weekend but when called upon did his job admirably, pulling off some fine stops, and speaking to the official site he admitted he had plenty of nerves ahead of the match but his early saves helped him settle and short of taking the victory and all three points, his day couldn’t have gone better.

‘It was my first game, so there were a few nerves. I found out in training on Friday that I was going to be playing, so to make an early save like that settled those nerves and enabled me to relax and enjoy myself. I was pleased with my personal performance, but the boys bailed me out a few times in the last 20 minutes with a few goal-line clearances, so I owe a lot to the team.’

As for his debut save of the day, he went on to say it was nice to have made a few in the game, but the one he’d pick was the late effort that he tipped onto the crossbar but he also knew he’d have quieter score less draws than that in the future.

‘It’s always nice to make a few saves, although if I had to choose one it would be the one at the end where I tipped it onto the crossbar. It was one of the most eventful 0-0s I have been involved with. It was an entertaining game, however, I’m disappointed not to get the three points as we did have a few chances. Overall though, the boys dug in deep and it was a great point to take.’

Having come in for praise from manager Neil Harris, it doesn’t look like David Forde will get his spot back any time soon possibly?
