Manager Neil Harris was proud of the character of the side in the first leg Play Off semi final victory over Bradford City.

Making the trip to Valley Parade for the first leg of the double header, Millwall secured advantage with a three one victory courtesy of goals from Gregory, Morison and Martin.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, Harris’ delight at the win and margin of the win was clear to see.

‘It was a fantastic display today. The character the players showed from start to finish was really very impressive, and I’m delighted with their performance out there. It was a blow to go behind early on in the game, which helped to build up the atmosphere in the stadium, but our response to that set-back was fantastic. The three goals we scored were of outstanding quality and typified all that has been good about our game this season; the combination play for the first, the set-piece for the second and then Joe’s free-kick, which he has been threatening to do for a few months now. They were all excellent finishes.’

He went on to add.

‘It’s important to remember that this is only half-time in the game and there is a long, long way to go. But the players won’t need any reminding of that going into Friday’s game at The Den. I’m sure there will be a special atmosphere on the night and we will need every bit of support from the fans because it is going to be a very tough game.’

Morison was also speaking to the press following the game, and he was adamant that there was plenty still to do to finish the tie off, but of course with a two goal advantage everybody can be happy with that.

‘It was a brilliant result, it’s what we’ve been doing all year away from home. But we can’t get carried away with that, it’s brilliant but we have still got a long way to go. You saw how much pressure they put us under after the break. We’ve done half the job.’

With Morison joining Gregory on the scoresheet, to rack up his 19th goal of the season, he ended by saying.

‘If we are both scoring each week we are doing something right. It’s been fantastic; I have loved playing alongside him all year and hopefully we can keep it up on Friday.’
