Manager Neil Harris has been meeting with the media to discuss Wednesday evening clash against Charlton Athletic.

With another poor result last weekend against Scunthorpe United and Millwall losing the game three nil owing to avoidable defensive errors in the gaffer’s eyes, hosting Karl Robinson’s new side at The Den tomorrow evening dictates whether Christmas gets a boost for many.

Speaking to London News Online as Harris discussed the up coming game on Wednesday night, he felt hr derby nature with the form book going out of the window could be exactly what we need to get back to our best and take all three points.

‘I`ve played in these games, the big local derbies, and they are brilliant to be involved in. It has come at a perfect time for us. We are fortunate it`s on Wednesday night. Everything like league form and results all go out the window. It becomes a one-off game against Charlton and I`ve told my players in no uncertain terms that I`ll be picking a team to win that game. I`m delighted we`ve got Wednesday to be honest. We`ll be back on the training pitch straight away with a view to working towards that game.’

With some positives from last weekend but the negatives clearly outweighing them, Harris was of course hopeful that he could be holding a different post game press conference after Charlton and one that didn’t include a reference to Millwall effectively beating themselves in a game again.

Two clear positivse were run outs for Shaun Hutchinson and Steve Morison from the bench, and Morison himself was in front of the same outlet to discuss the up coming game and it was all about the win and three points however we manage to pick them up in midweek.

The same outlet having Morison talking down the clash, saying it’s just another game where three points is the prize.

‘It`s the next game and we want to win every game. The atmosphere will be different – there will be a few more people through the front door. We will just be trying to win. I want to score in every game and this is another chance to do that. I have a few goals against them. But we are a different team this time to the side that played in those matches. This is a new challenge.’

Having made his return from injury against Scunthorpe as a substitute, Morison was pressed on his thoughts about the game and performance and for the experienced striker his thoughts would largely remain in the dressing room.

‘I said what I needed to after the game against Scunthorpe. People need to find it within themselves to improve.’
