With Play Off final disappointment still fresh in the mind following defeat to Barnsley, skipper Tony Craig has said that with the improvements made this year, he feels the future is very bright for Millwall under manager Neil Harris.

Speaking to the official site following the three one loss at Wembley, Craig explained that whilst the dream of a return to the Championship at the first time of asking was clearly over, the hope of doing it at the second time of asking was definitely alive.

‘It was a mad day for me personally. One minute I was not involved, the next Webby gets injured and before I know it I am leading the team out at Wembley. To lose was hard to take; it has hurt everyone. It has been a good season for us but we just could not get over the final hurdle. For me personally, it was tough out there. It’s been six, seven months since I played a full first team game which is a long, long time. Unfortunately as a team we just couldn’t get the momentum going. It was a bad day.’

With the game being his 240th start for the club, he said over the past 12 months he’d seen enough to believe that the future was bright for Millwall under the gaffer and he believed fans could look forward to another good year next season, where hopefully the team would go one step further.

‘We’ve got a very good squad. There’s good unity, good charisma and we’ve got some exceptional young talent here. The future is bright for the club. We started this season with most of the talk being about us finishing mid-table and we proved a lot of people wrong. We will report back from our summer break on 1st July raring to go and looking forward to the new season.’
