Starting with Harris, he told the official site in his post game press conference that he couldn’t have been more delighted for the 22 year old striker with him getting a brace on the day.

‘The biggest compliment I can give Aiden is that he never stands still. He is always on the move and that is such an important quality in a striker. Yet again I was really impressed with all of my forward players for the way they pressed at the right times, created opportunities and got balls into the box. It wasn’t our best performance today but there were a lot of warriors on the pitch for us. We put our faith in some young players and there were outstanding all game for us.’

Harris went on to say that it’s obviously a ‘big result’ for us given Sheffield United’s ambitions for the year, but he knows nobody can get ‘carried away’ with anything yet as there are still improvements to be made.

‘It is a big result but we are not getting carried away. What we are doing, though, is looking up and not down which is important for a young group. What is pleasing from my point of view is that everyone, including our fans and the opposition, now know exactly what they are going to get from this Millwall team.’

As for O’Brien, he was obviously delighted with his two goals on the day and he knew it was a ‘massive’ result for us as well, but the focus now has to be on continuing our form when we face Doncaster Rovers.

‘We started the season shaky, but that’s all behind us and we are not losing too much. But I don’t want to jinx it too much, so it is important that we don’t get ahead of ourselves. We need to stay level-headed. It was a massive win against Sheffield though, we just wanted to do our best and to come and get a 2-1 result and for me to score the winner, well, I’m buzzing.’

O’Brien went on to say that for him, we should’ve certainly taken all three points from the Blackpool game but given that we didn’t taking them in this one will more than do.

‘We should have won in our previous game at Blackpool but a late, late, late penalty got them a point so to get all three points from this game with a late goal ourselves was great. They had a lot of the ball and we sat off and in the second-half we didn’t apply much pressure. When they got the equaliser I thought they might go on and try to nick another one. But we got the break; when we went 2-1 ahead we tied down on everything, brought on Byron Webster and cleaned up everything and got the win. Now we have to take that confidence into our match with Doncaster and try to continue our improved form.’
