Manager Neil Harris has heaped praise on the Millwall team and the two centre halves during Tuesday evening’s victory over Shrewsbury Town.

Making the trip to the Greenhous Meadow for the game, Millwall may have lacked possession on the day but they had the greater chances and made them count with Byron Webster and Shaun Hutchinson finding the net on the day, and Shrewsbury’s 90th minute strike proved nothing more than a consolation.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, Harris couldn’t have been more delighted to see Millwall draw level with Southend United on 66 points even though we sit outside of the Play Off spots on goal difference now.

Opening with his thoughts on Webster’s first goal, Harris explained.

‘It was a composed finish from a boy with very good technical ability for his size. He was set up well by Steve Morison as well. The game was ebbing and flowing, it was on a real knife-edge. We got ourselves into some good positions in and around the box.’

There was also special praise for Webster’s centre half partner Hutchinson given his efforts on the day.

‘Both my centre-halves were outstanding. Yes, we’d love for the front three of Morison, Lee Gregory and Aiden O’Brien to add to the amount of goals they’ve scored in recent times, but sometimes goals need to come from other areas of the pitch – especially at this stage of the season. To have centre-halves popping up with goals is really key. Our application, desire and spirit was top draw tonight.’

With a local derby against Gillingham next up on Saturday, Harris was already relishing that clash as he knew that could be the vital change in the table we’ve been looking for.

‘We had a little blip, but we’re now out of it and we go into a local derby with Gillingham on Saturday in high spirits and good form. We’ll play on the front foot and we want to make sure we add to our points tally so we’re in the top six come April 30th.’
