Manager Neil Harris has praised the ‘hardwork’ of the side given the weekend’s victory over Northampton Town.

Making the trip to Sixfields Stadium for the game, Millwall took a three one victory on the day with goals coming from Lee Gregory, Calum Butcher and Steve Morison.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press interviews, a pleased Harris explained.

‘I was pleased with my players today. They have worked so hard over the last 12 – 14 days on the back of the Walsall game. They have really stuck at it and this is a good start to the week. I am disappointed with the goal, but I’m not going to let that take anything away from the performance.’

He went on to say.

‘I think we were a better team today, this was a professional team performance. We have been letting goals in and not winning games, I hear the defence needs changing, this needs changing or that needs changing, but we do it as a team. When we say about doing it as a team, its not an old cliche, we do it from the front and by taking care of the ball up front. It means us getting the ball in the right areas going forward, and us building attacks and allowing our defenders to settle.’

Harris also believed there were positives we could more than take from the second half going into the midweek game against Bolton Wanderers.

‘The physical test we had in the second-half will certainly come in useful for Tuesday against Bolton, they are a big team at this level. a really good team and have some of our old foes. It will be nice to see them. I’m delighted to be back at The Den. We lost in the 96th minute against Rochdale, but we have been outstanding at home. On the back of today, we will be looking to take this momentum into the next two games.’

With striker Morison signing a contract extension keeping him at the club until the summer of 2018 ahead of the game, Harris also spoke of that post game.

‘Steve has been outstanding for us and a real talisman for us during my tenure. Myself and the chairman thought it made sense to extend his contract to reward his performances. Every club needs an experienced striker to lead the front line and he is ours. We are delighted to have him here until 2018.’
