Manager Neil Harris was incredibly frustrated at the full time whistle against Swindon Town this weekend.

Making the trip to the County Ground to face off against Swindon who have turned their own form around in the last few matches, Millwall found themselves two goals to the good with Lee Gregory and Steve Morison finding the net on six and eleven in the first half.

A second half penalty made it a one goal game though and Swindon equalised four minutes into stoppage time right at the death.

With plenty of positives he could again take from the match, the disappointment was the overriding factor for Harris as he spoke to the official site in his post game press conference.

‘We certainly feel like we’ve been robbed here today. There is no doubt whatsoever that we deserved to win the game. The players followed the gameplan perfectly and apart from possible lacking a little bit of quality in the second-half, our performance was very good. We started on the front foot, forced them into mistakes and deserved what was then a good lead.’

With the penalty award on Carlos Edwards being harsh, Harris knew that’s where the game twisted somewhat.

‘But the penalty changes the whole complexion of the game. It’s a really soft one if I’m being truthful, so we’re incredibly frustrated and disappointed because it gave them a way back into the game at a time when we were dealing with everything they threw at us. The foul count tells a story, too, and you can see that some decisions really didn’t go our way this afternoon. I only really want to focus on the things we can control, though, and ultimately we should have seen the game out. The players are hugely disappointed in the dressing room but there are so many positives to take out of the game.’
