Millwall manager Neil Harris has bemoaned a lack of luck against Bury in the weekend’s stalemate and he’s looking for better later this evening against Rochdale.

Hosting Bury at The Den for Saturday’s League One action, Harris bemoaned a lack of luck in the game as the reason for the scoreless draw as Steve Morison had a perfectly good effort ruled out for offside in the game, but speaking to the official site Harris also had to credit the performance of their goalkeeper Joe Murphy for his performance on the day.

‘We kept knocking on the door but couldn’t break it down. We did – the goal was a perfectly good goal, but luck eluded us today with that decision. The Bury goalkeeper made a couple of great saves and showed his experience. He marshalled his back five well and was the difference between us picking up the three points.’

With Jed Wallace’s performance on the day and his involvement in the disallowed goal that should’ve returned all three points, he came in for praise from the gaffer, but Harris was clearly frustrated with things ‘just not quite happen(ing)’ for us across the 90 minutes.

‘Jed gave us some real energy. He carried the ball well and looked sharp. However, we lacked composure at times. I thought when we had composure, the patience and the quality on a very difficult playing surface, we looked very good. It just didn’t quite happen for us a couple of times. Credit to Bury – they got the point they came for.’

With the home run over now, Millwall go into a run of seven games on our travels in the final 10 matches of the campaign as we look to book ourselves in the League One Play Offs and that of course begins later this evening as we travel to Spotland Stadium to face Rochdale, and away trips against Swindon town and current clear leaders Sheffield United follow.

‘It’s certainly a challenge to have three consecutive away games, but it makes no difference to us. Our away form earlier in the season wasn’t great, but it’s been consistent since. We’ll embrace it.’
