Manager Neil Harris made a number of changes to the starting line up for Millwall’s Tuesday evening draw against Stevenage at the Lamex Stadium.

Playing out an entertaining scoreless draw on the day, Millwall certainly had the chances to take the win but Harris would’ve been largely pleased with the performance, even if our lack of clinical edge is something that needs to be improved.

With a much changed side though and no Lee Gregory or Steve Morison in the front line, that might be something the manager forgives as Aiden O’Brien, Tom Elliott and Fred Onyedinma were impressive without finding the back of the net.


Fryer, Martin, Franks, Wilkinson (Wilmott 76), Beautyman (Georgiou 72), Samuel, Gorman, Conlon (Ferry 76), Newton (Gray 76), Henry (Wade-Slater 76), McKee (Turgott 42).


Day, Liburd, Akinyemi, Trialist.


King, Craig, Thompson (Butcher 72), Onyedinma, Romeo, Wallace (Worrall 76) , Nelson, Webster (Ferguson 46), Elliott, Saville, O’Brien.


Girling, Brown, Twardek, Philpot, Mbulu.

Referee: A. Young.

Speaking to the official site as he spoke with the media to review the game, Harris was suitably happy with large parts of Millwall’s play.

‘On Saturday at Barnet we looked very pre-season like. But tonight, we looked sharper. We were very dangerous with the ball. We can still brush up defensively, we can still tighten up at the back, but the only thing lacking tonight was the end product – that final touch in the box. Their goalkeeper made some great saves.’

Harris went on to say.

‘Tonight we’ve made bundles of chances – that really pleases me. Tom Elliott and Fred Onyedinma have had huge amounts of chances. Because we’re making them, we’re going to convert them over the course of the season.’

Elliott and Onyedinma came in for further praise.

‘He’s a dangerous player. He has pace and power and gets himself into some really difficulty situations for defenders to deal with. He and Tom looked a dangerous pairing. They had the raw attributes of a good partnership.’
