Manager Neil Harris has praised the performance of striker Lee Gregory following the two one victory over Fleetwood Town at the weekend.

Hosting the side at The Den for this weekend’s action, Millwall took the two one win with a brace of goals from Gregory from the penalty spot and Harris was delighted with the response of the players to the Bolton Wanderers loss in our previous games.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, Harris explained.

‘They were two lovely composed finishes. And Lee really should have come away with the match ball. I thought he was excellent. I thought we had moments and some passage of plays that were excellent, we created chances. We were due a bit of luck over the course of the last few months, which hadn’t gone our way, so we will take the penalties.’

He went on to add.

‘We looked a lot more composed in possession, especially after the first goal, I thought it really settled us down. Fred Onyedinma and Mahlon Romeo linked up well on the right side and I thought Shane Ferguson gave us another element to our play. However we were disappointed not to get a clean sheet really, we need to get back to them. Overall though, I thought we were dominant and deserved the win.’

With the win lifting Millwall to 16th place in the League One table, goalkeeper Jordan Archer was also interviewed after the game, and he knew the quality in the camp was much better than the league position indicated at the moment – so pushing on up the table was the aim for everyone at the club.

‘It has been a pretty poor run and we’ve had a bit of bad luck in the last few games, minus the Northampton match. We are much better then our League position and most people tipped us to go up. There is still a long way to go. We haven’t been side-tracked by our position in the table, and we’re only a few points off where we were at this stage last season.’

With Gregory getting the brace from the penalty spot on the day, he went on to say.

‘He takes a few penalties in training, and he scores most of them. He is very composed. I probably know which way he is going to go, but he does change it up like he did against Fleetwood when he went both ways. He is a top striker.’
