Manager Neil Harris has spoken of his delight at watching Millwall take a three nil victory over Granada Club de Futbal yesterday.

Hosting the Spanish side at The Den for the game on Saturday, goals from Jed Wallace, Shaun Williams and Aiden O’Brien tied up the game and it would’ve been a good boost ahead of next weekend’s opening Championship fixture against Nottingham Forest on Friday evening.

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

‘I thought we looked fit, strong, organised and disciplined. Our use of the ball was really strong at times and we looked good in possession against a possession-based team that wanted to play through us. The Championship will be a really good League this year, full of great players that have international experience. We’re going to have to have all those traits we showed today in abundance throughout the season, starting next week at Forest.’

Harris went on to say.

‘We have to impose ourselves on teams – I thought today, we imposed our gameplan on Granada. I thought it was a really good performance. There was some outstanding performances collectively and individually – it’s given me a lot to consider between now and next Friday night.’
