Manager Neil Harris was rightly delighted to see Millwall continue their promotion push with victory over Blackpool at the weekend.

Hosting Neil McDonald’s side at The Den for the game, Millwall took the largely comfortable and comprehensive three nil victory with goals coming from Lee Gregory (his 21st of the year), Jed Wallace (first for the club) and Steve Morison’s late penalty.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, a delighted gaffer explained.

‘I thought it was terrific today. But it can always be better and we were not free flowing for 90 minutes. I thought we won the game in the first 25 minutes with the chances we created and the two goals we scored. I’m delighted that three of my four attacking players got on the scoresheet, and it could’ve been more with some of the opportunities we created throughout the game.’

Harris went on to say that with Blackpool being a hard working team who don’t normally get beat more than one nil, for him to rack up three, and keep the clean sheet was an absolute bonus.

‘Blackpool are a hard working team and don’t often get beat by more than one goal, so for us to score three, keep a clean sheet and dominate for long periods is really pleasing. All that was missing against Wigan on Tuesday, which was one of our best performances of the season, was a clinical edge, but we had that today. I can’t fault my players because it’s been a long week for us. At this stage of the season, three games in a week is tough, especially with limited changes, so credit to the players because they give me everything every day. What I’m delighted about is that we are really starting to look like a proper Millwall team. But there is still improvement to be made.’

As for Wallace, with him getting his first goal for Millwall since coming in on loan Wolves explained himself.

‘It’s a crucial month for us. We have some massive games coming up. No-one will want to be playing Millwall at the moment. We are big, strong, aggressive and are looking good.’

As for his goal itself, he added.

‘It’s been a long time coming. If you don’t believe in yourself no-one is going to, so it’s good to get the goal and the three points. It’s been that long since I scored I’d almost forgotten how to celebrate!’
