Manager Neil Harris has said he was disappointed to see Millwall only pick up a point from Blackpool in last night’s match but he couldn’t be too downbeat about the result.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, the gaffer was disappointed to see us lead from the first half, but not build on it with a second strike, meaning late on second half they got the penalty to even up the scores, but he wasn’t going to be too upset with it given our efforts on the day.

‘It’s frustrating to be honest but I’ve told the boys not to feel down. When we look back it could be looked at as a good point. We bossed the game for the most part and they didn’t look like scoring until the penalty. Overall I’m pleased with the performance. The manner in which we conceded the penalty was disappointing but we will bounce back from that.’

Harris went on to say that a positive was until the penalty he didn’t feel we looked like we would concede on the day, so for him that was a ‘big plus’ and despite the disappointment it’s something we should take as a positive.

But it shows the fine margins when you don’t open up wriggle room on a scoreline, as two goals for us would’ve given us another three points.

‘We never looked like conceding a goal, which is a big plus, and in the end we just got punished by a slight positional error.’

With Shaun Williams limping off early on after the restart, the gaffer confirmed he had to be assessed over the coming days but fingers crossed it won’t be anything too serious or lengthy.

‘It looks like Shaun has a back spasm so we will have to see how he gets on as the week continues. Ben Thompson came on and did really well so that’s an option in there for us.’
