Ahead of tonight’s EFL Trophy second round clash against Wycombe Wanderers at The Den, manager Neil Harris has been speaking of his hopes of winning all three games that fall within this week.

With a five two victory over Braintree Town in the FA Cup, Harris wants third round progress in tonight’s match before rounding the week off with Shrewsbury Town on Saturday in League One.

Speaking ahead of the game to the official site as he met with the media Harris knew it would push the squad with so many fixtures now coming thick and fast, but he was confident that with the youth we have at the club they would admirably step up to the plate if called upon and perform.

Millwall do of course face seven games across December.

‘It’s a possibility that another debutant will get their chance. There will certainly be changes in the starting XI. There were a few injuries that occurred during Sunday’s game against Braintree. On top of that we have three games in six days and I have to manage that.’

With winger Kris Twardek being nominated for the Canadian U20s Player of the Year award this week, Harris confirmed he would likely be in the squad, as would Alfie Pavey.

‘It’s been a really good competition to us because it has allowed us to give players match minutes and give others their debuts. We want to win this game, no doubt about it. We want to carry momentum on from every game and go on little runs, plus we will be in front of our home fans tonight.’


‘Wycombe have been on a really good run of form lately, very high tempo and well organised. We will give our opponents, and the Checkatrade Trophy itself, every respect at The Den.’
