Midfielder Shane Ferguson has been speaking how he feels he’s really benefited from playing regular football since his move to Millwall.

Speaking to the official site with fans and players getting an unexpected weekend off following the postponement of the game against Charlton Athletic, Ferguson was of course on international duty himself with Northern Ireland – as was Mahlon Romeo with Antigua & Barbuda – and he spoke about how he felt he’d developed as a player since coming in from Newcastle United.

Having helped his country to a four nil victory over San Marino – registering two assists – Ferguson explained.

‘It is good to be getting games at Millwall. Certainly at this stage of the season I would not be able to help out on the international stage in the same way if on the bench or not getting games at club level. It is good to be playing and enjoying my football.’

With Northern Ireland now facing Germany later tonight, Ferguson went on to add that although they go into the game in good spirits, it’s obviously going to be a completely different kind of test, but it’s one he’s relishing and one he hopes to learn from to improve further as a player.

‘It was good to get a few assists against San Marino and we worked a lot on getting the ball out wide and putting it into the box. We were probably a bit frustrated at times but the manager`s message was to stay patient. It was great to see Windsor Park bouncing but now the focus turns to the next test. Germany will be a completely different game and we have a lot of work to do. However, we are all looking forward to facing some of the best players in the world.’
