Speaking to the official site following late goals from Jimmy Abdou and Magaye Gueye, a proud and delighted Harris explained that the victory was obviously a massive boost in our hopes of avoiding relegation from the Championship this season.

There was also plenty to talk about with a goal from Abdou for the first time in two years, along with three red cards.

‘That was a Millwall performance. That is what this club is all about. There were loads of incidents in the game and I’ll back my players when that sort of thing happens any day. It’s the way it is at Millwall. Some things were a little harsh. It wasn’t a dangerous match and this is a man’s game, but there were three red cards.’

Harris went on to say that whilst he knew the press would focus on some things from the game, namely the sendings off, he again repeated he didn’t feel it was a nasty or dangerous performance from either side, it was just full bloodied and committed and again some results were harsh from the referee, but he felt the focus should be on what a massive win it was for us and the two good goals that we scored.

‘Jimmy Abdou certainly picks his moments! He has been absolutely outstanding since I’ve come in. Even when I played with him I also told him he had that ability to arrive late in the box like he did tonight. He continues to be a great player for this football club and he deserved that. It was also a brilliant goal from Magaye Gueye. He has made another huge impact from the bench.’

Millwall now leapfrog Wigan but remain in the dropzone, however the points gap on the sides above us has now been cut to five points following Rotherham’s draw with Fulham on Wednesday night.

‘Like I’ve said all along, what we are doing is just trying to go out there and win games of football. We can’t control what happens elsewhere. But what we can do is have an impact out there when it is our turn to play. We are still in a very difficult position but the boys are full of belief again.’
