Manager Neil Harris has said he was pleased to see Millwall get their first point on the board following our draw at the weekend with Bolton Wanderers.

Hosting Bolton at The Den for the game, George Saville gave us the lead early on in the second half, but Bolton levelled just after the hour mark and that was where the scoring on the day ended.

Speaking to the official site as he met with the media in his post game press conference, Harris was disappointed not to have taken all three points on the day but he was satisfied with the overall performance.

‘No, it wasn’t a fair result. We were the better team and had the most chances. We got our noses in front, but unfortunately Hutch has slipped to give the foul away. If he doesn’t slip, he clears the ball. But what a great free-kick.’

Harris went on to say.

‘We controlled large parts of the game. We’ve not always been threatening in and around the six-yard box, but we were in spells today. Mark Beevers has cleared one off the line from Steve Morison and the goalkeeper has made a couple of great saves. We looked a lot more dangerous.’

Despite not taking the victory, Harris was pleased to have got off the mark for the year but now he’s looking for further improvement in the games to come so we can pick up those victories.

‘It’s disappointing not to win a game when you’ve been the better team for two matches in a row, but that’s the level we’re playing at. Having said that, I’m really pleased for my players that we’ve got our first point on the board. We now move on to Tuesday night.’
