Manager Neil Harris was frustrated and disappointed at full time in the game against Scunthorpe last night.

Having spoken ahead of the hosting of Scunthorpe at The Den about the need for consistency to keep our recent form going but to improve significantly our home form, Harris had to concede that across the game Millwall got what they deserved and were second best in the match.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, a disappointed gaffer explained about the two nil defeat and our first loss in seven.

‘There was no lack of effort and nothing changed in the way we play, but for whatever reason we weren’t quite up to speed in the game against an in-form Scunthorpe team. We were second best for large parts of the game. We made a mistake in the first-half and got punished for it, and got caught chasing the game (second goal). We had good chances but weren’t as clinical as we have been. Overall we just didn’t hit the same standards we’ve had in recent weeks. We gave the ball away too cheaply and there was a nervousness to our play, which is disappointing. But I’ve stressed to the group that we sixth in the table so things aren’t all bad. We’re in a great position in the League and what we are trying to achieve was never going to be an overnight success. It is disappointing and frustrating but it’s important to remember that we have come a long way in a short space of time.’

With Ed Upson being lost to injury before the half time break, Harris admitted that wasn’t ideal for plans and preparations but it didn’t overly effect the end result.

For the injury itself, he admitted he needed to see scans and assessments before knowing how serious or not the problem might be.

‘I’ve not spoken to the physio yet but it will be a lot clearer tomorrow morning as to how it settles down and if there is any damage in there.’
