Manager Neil Harris was a very happy man at full time in the weekend’s game against Bury.

The three one victory at Gigg Lane with a brace from Chris Taylor and a solo strike from Steve Morison, means Millwall only need a point more to guarantee a Play Off spot for the 2015/16 campaign and a possible return to the Championship at the first time of asking remains more than on for the club.

For Harris, it was just the clinical nature of the side that really pleased him.

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

‘We got ourselves in front without really being on top in the game. Bury asked a lot of questions of us by putting balls in the box and by playing a real risk and reward game. They’re in a safe position in the League and they had a real attacking threat about them. We had to adjust things at half-time to be as solid as possible and in the second-half we were a real threat on the counter attack.’

He went on to say.

‘We were clinical in the final third and they were good goals. We’ve been a threat going forward all season and I think that has been down to the blend between youth and experience and getting that right. Today we put Fred Onyedinma back into the side to give us a little bit of pace and he did really well before bringing on the experience of Ed Upson, who gave us a different dimension and an extra pass in midfield. Aiden O’Brien became a real threat in the final half hour as the game opened up a little bit and then there was Steve Morison, who has been outstanding. He has struggled a little bit with injury this week and we wasn’t sure if he was going to make it today, but I’m delighted he did because he scored a great goal and the assist for the third, Chris Taylor’s second, was top quality centre forward play.’

With a brace and an assist on the day, Taylor obviously came in for special praise from the gaffer.

‘Chris has been here before and was very popular during his previous spell. I’ve played against him over the years and he’s a quality player and person, and is the type of man we want at this football club. Today he deserved his two goals. The first one may have been a little bit lucky but the second was a great break into the box and he epitomised the work rate, energy and tempo we had about us.’
