Manager Neil Harris has reflected on the League Cup loss to Nottingham Forest in midweek, and insisted there were positives Millwall could take from the game.

Losing the tie two one with Shaun Williams almost giving us an opportunity to go through to the third round draw, before the visitors took the lead late on once more, Harris was obviously disappointed as he spoke to the official site in his post game press conference, but he was confident about the positives that could be taken from the match.

‘It’s obviously really disappointing to lose the game so late on like we did, but there were a lot of pleasing aspects to our performance. In the end I think the difference between both teams was that little bit of quality in the final third. If we had been a bit more clinical going forward then on another day the score might have been different. I would love to have been in the draw tomorrow night but it is what it is. There are still many positives for us.’

With Tom King making his full debut between the sticks and Jamie Philpot getting the start, Harris had been pleased by the performances of both of them.

‘I was really pleased with Tom. His performance gives me food for thought in terms of my team selection up at Chesterfield on Saturday. I selected a team of players who we felt could win the game, which we nearly did. Jamie did well up front and was unlucky not to get on the end of something.’

With Fred Onyedinma and Aiden O’Brien both being substituted with knocks in the game, Harris also confirmed that they were doubtful for Saturday’s trip to Chesterfield, but they’d be assessed late on.
