UP­SON’S PARTING SHOT AT JOHN­SON

The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Luke Mur­ray

MILL­WALL sign­ing Ed Up­son has dis­missed for­mer boss Gary John­son’s claims that he is not up to Cham­pi­onship scratch af­ter leav­ing Yeovil on dead­line day.

John­son al­lowed the mid­fielder – who had scored four league goals for the Glovers – to head to The Den in a £100,000 deal.

How­ever he has cast doubt on Up­son’s “stan­dards” at Cham­pi­onship level as Yeovil strug­gle to fight their way up from the divi­sion’s rel­e­ga­tion zone.

But Up­son, 24, in­sists he has proved him­self al­ready and it was time to leave Huish Park.

“He can say what he wants – if he wants to say that about his top goalscorer, that’s fine,” said Up­son.

“I have got no doubts at all that I have made the step up to the Cham­pi­onship. I’ve proven my­self with my per­for­mances and by get­ting the goals I’ve got.

“The cir­cum­stances were slightly strange be­fore I left. Things be­came a bit hos­tile but I don’t want to go into that too much.

“This is the right move at the right time, with the right man­ager and the right team.

“I was a bit emo­tional leav­ing Yeovil be­cause I’d been there for three years, had some good times there and made some good friends too.”
