The Iceland international came off the bench on Saturday to net his first goal at Madejski Stadium and level proceedings late on against Hull City.

Böðvarsson hopes to play his part in helping the Royals hit their stride as quickly as possible going into the rest of the season, but warns of the threat Millwall will pose on Tuesday night at The Den.

"There's no easy game," he said. "Millwall is a fine team, they've surprised many teams this season as well. We are just focussing on ourselves really.

"It doesn't matter who the opponent is, if we're on form and our shape is good, we can beat everybody in this league and it's up to us."

Böðvarsson celebrates his equaliser on Saturday with team-mate and fellow summer signing Sone Aluko.

With the Millwall fixture being the second of three matches in the space of seven days, Böðvarsson knows that a high work-rate and positive attitude can play their part in helping a team perform well alongside footballing talent.

With this being the ninth game of a 46-match campaign for the Royals, the striker is urging the Royals to not rest on their laurels at any point this season.

"It's the Championship, it's game after game. There's no room for being comfortable, we just need to deliver and keep on going.

"It's a grind league, you don't have to be the best team in the world to be successful in the league. If you show guts and character and are willing to run for the team, then you can go far in this league.

"It's up to us to show character and keep on improving every day, and go onto the next one."
