January signing Ed Upson has said he can’t wait to walk out on the pitch at The Den for the first time since joining the club.

The 24 year old midfielder made his debut in the game against Burnley, and then was forced to sit out the game against his former club Yeovil Town owing to an agreement between both clubs when he moved.

Now he is building up to the game against Bolton Wanderers at The Den, and he’s desperate to get his starting debut on home soil now.

Speaking to the official site ahead of the game, the deadline day newbie said that it can be tough joining new clubs, especially half way through a season because it’s a lot of new faces and they are already midway through the campaign so the characters are known and it can sometimes be difficult to settle in, but it has been really easy for him to get used to life at the club because everyone has been so welcoming and helpful.

‘From Yeovil it is a massive step up for. Millwall are a big team, famous name, and have passionate fans. It was a pleasure to play for Yeovil and to achieve so much there that was completely unexpected. But I’m always looking to progress, and this is the next step. It has been a fun couple of weeks and I’m really enjoying myself.’

Upson goes on to say that making his debut was a proud moment for him, but now he can’t wait for a game at The Den so he can feel the atmosphere with the fans behind him and not against him.

Upson also jokes that probably owes the crowd a goal or two to cancel out the one he scored against us when Yeovil took an unexpected three points on the opening day of the season.
