Manager Neil Harris has assessed where Millwall are now following a few months of the League One campaign having now passed, and the Southend Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tie has been set in the fixture list.

Beginning with his thoughts on the improvement shown by Millwall so far this season, with the club now having seven wins from the last eleven matches, Harris told the official site that there was still plenty of improvement to be done, and we were still a work in progress but he had to be pleased with how we were now performing and picking up results.

‘We’re definitely a work in progress. We have come a long way in a short space of time but as I keep reminding the players we have still got a long way to go. I talk a lot about a young squad and I don’t always mean age, I mean as a squad that has been put together with a lot of players having left and many who have come through the system to get an opportunity. We are moving in the right direction and results certainly prove that. Two defeats in 15 games bodes well, but being a perfectionist I would say that is two too many. Realistically, though, it has been a good couple of months for us.’

Harris went on to say that in terms of the League form specifically, he wants us to be at the top end of the table challenging for promotion following last year’s relegation – but for now we simply look for overall improvement and take it one game at a time.

‘In terms of our League form it is important to be at the top end of the table. We have no expectation level at the moment for us to look at towards the end of the season and we are more than comfortable taking it one game at a time and week-by-week. What is important is that the players realise they have done very well so far but we’ve got a long way to go and a lot of improvement in us.’

With the Southend Area Semi Final being a familiar face for the gaffer, that has now been set for Roots Hall on Tuesday December 8 and it will carry a 7.45pm kick off.

A place in the Southern Section Final awaits against either Yeovil Town or Oxford United.
