Manager Neil Harris has said that Millwall are ‘no where near’ the finished article in his mind yet, despite improving form and results.

Speaking to the official site in his pre game press conference, Harris talked about his pleasure at the turn in form and our results, but also pointed to the last game where he was less than pleased with the overall levels on display.

With Bradford next up, there is a sense of more of the same though owing to the ‘momentum and confidence’ we have within the camp.

‘We’ve definitely got momentum and confidence at the moment. We are growing as a group during what has been a tough run of fixtures. It is great when the boys have a set to time to report for training and you come down half an hour early and they are all sitting there chatting and laughing. You know you have a winning group when that is happening and there are smiles on faces. Everybody is fresh, bright and raring to go. When you go on to the training pitch for a bit of recovery time the players want to join in and do more. We have to manage them and make sure they are fresh for Saturday. It is a lot of games but the boys are fit and hungry to play.’

What has been important for Harris is that he feels we have now found some ‘stability’ – certainly in results but also in performances largely – but again there’s still plenty of room for improvement, but with so many games now played he knows the League One table takes on a more reflective shape, and we have to be pleased with where we find ourselves.

Now it’s about bettering that.

‘We are just finding a little bit of stability. The League table is starting to take shape a little bit but we are not stupid enough to think ‘right that is it, we are in amongst it now’. We have to earn the right to climb up the table. I keep talking about small steps. We are building and we are a young group, not just in age but also in terms of coming together. We are enjoying it but we have a long way to go and are nowhere near the finished article. We have so much improvement left in us and that just takes time.’
