Manager Neil Harris has bemoaned a lacklustre and uncharacteristic Millwall performance following the draw with Colchester United this weekend.

Making the trip to the Colchester Community Stadium for the game, Millwall lacked the clinical edge that has often been apparent once the season really got underway and the forward players found their feet at this level, and the game dribbled out to a scoreless draw.

With Play Off hopes still firmly on, Harris was obviously disappointed as he spoke to the official site in his post game press conference, and he’s looking for a quick reaction in the next one now.

‘Full credit to Colchester for the way they defended. We were really lacklustre in the first-half and were as much on the backfoot as we have been for a long time. Having said that we had three glorious chances to score.’

As for the second half performance he went on to say.

‘In the second-half we increased the tempo and were a lot brighter in possession and got into good areas, with positive deliveries into the box, but we couldn’t find the end product.’

There were positives he could take however, and one of those was the clean sheet, but he knows really it should’ve been three points with the chances that fell our way, so it’s on to the next one now and hopefully a return to more clinical ways.

‘I’m delighted with the clean sheet and the attitude of the boys was fantastic, but I just didn’t think we were ourselves today for whatever reason. That is something for me and my coaching staff to look at and if we ever needed a reminder of how tough this division is and how much of a challenge it is to get over the line then it was today.’

Shrewsbury Town next weekend at The Den will be a game he’s looking for victory in.
