Manager Neil Harris was deeply frustrated following Millwall’s defeat to Coventry City at the weekend.

Making the trip to the Ricoh Arena for the game, Millwall lost their third tie in 18 visits to the ground, and having taken the lead in the game through Byron Webster, before Shaun Williams was sent off ahead of the half hour mark, Coventry hit back in the second period to take all three points in the two one game.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, a clearly frustrated Harris admitted he could have no complaints with the sending off itself, and nor the efforts of the players, but unfortunately for us the red card was the turning point.

‘We were in control of the game until the sending-off. That was clearly the turning point and having had a brief look at the incident again I haven’t got any complaints. I felt even with ten men we were defending well and limiting their chances until they equalised with a wonder-strike. I was disappointed with the second goal, but we were unfortunate not to nick another one ourselves near the end. I praised the players for their efforts afterwards, and now we must recover quickly ready for another big game at The Den on Tuesday night.’

With a three point gap to Barnsley in seventh place in League One, victory against Fleetwood on Tuesday even could now be vital to see the season out with a Play Off spot and a hopeful trip to Wembley.
