Millwall manager Neil Harris has said that Sunderland is an opportunity to bounce back this weekend.

Having entered the November international break on the back of a defeat to Burton Albion, Harris told the media in his pre game press conference that the trip to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland represented a great opportunity for the side to bounce back and in doing so, gain our first away win of the campaign.

Speaking to the official site he explained.

‘We had a great result at Cardiff and a really positive and strong performance at Sheffield Wednesday. But then we came back to The Den and the Burton Albion match was a real shame. We dominated the game from start to finish and I feel like we were robbed. That really upset us and angered us and now it’s about bouncing back. We need to turn solid performances into results and this weekend is a great opportunity to do that.’

With Sunderland having issues of their own and sitting bottom of the table, they host us looking for a first home win in 2017, but Harris knows we can’t take them lightly.

‘I think they have encountered a situation that a lot of teams, including us, have encountered in the past. When momentum is going against you and you are swimming against the tide it can be tough to come out the other side. What we do know is that on paper they have an excellent side, but we have to impose ourselves on the game and impose ourselves on them. We know how tough it can be at The Den when momentum is against you and you have to work to get the fans back on side. It will be no different for Sunderland.’

Harris remains unable to call upon Jed Wallace for the game, but our internationals have returned fit and well and should come back into his thoughts.
