Manager Neil Harris has praised the Millwall squad for their efforts over the festive and New Year period as the side more than kept their Play Off hopes alive.

With successive victories over Charlton, Swindon and Gillingham, we went into the Wimbledon game looking to make it four from four but with only a draw in the physical encounter, we still go into the remainder of January having taken ten points from a potential 12 and Harris knows that’s not too shabby at all.

Speaking to the official site following the two all draw yesterday where we took the lead twice through Aiden O’Brien and Steve Morison but couldn’t quite hold out, the gaffer explained.

‘It was a physical game, a fast game – everything that I expected. It was a challenging game. We had to deal with a lot of physicality, a lot of balls into our box. I thought AFC Wimbledon made it extremely difficult for us, to be in front twice and not win the game was disappointing for us, but it’s a tough place to come. The over-riding feeling today is disappointment at the result, but I’m very proud of my players.’

Speaking about the run in the last four games itself, he went on to say that collectively everyone should take credit as it’s not an easy time of year.

‘It’s been a great effort from the boys; it’s not just about the starting XI, it’s about everybody. The squad is competitive, the squad push each other. We now need to make sure we build on this Christmas period with 10 points in four games. We will enjoy the distraction of next week and the FA Cup tie with Bournemouth, and then it’s straight back into it with a League game at Charlton.’
