Caretaker manager Neil Harris has said he felt Millwall were excellent ‘between’ the two boxes on Tuesday evening.

Speaking to the official site following the scoreless draw, Harris believed that the players couldn’t have put in any more effort for him or the fans across the 90 minutes and he more than felt that we were the better side – we just lacked the quality and composure in the final third to make the chances we needed.

With Brentford up next, the aim in training will be on developing that clinical edge, but with Joe Bennett’s freekick hitting the woodwork and being the best chance either side created on the day, defensively he was very happy.

‘The boys couldn’t give me any more apart from a goal. We were excellent between the two boxes. Unfortunately that final ball was lacking just a little bit. We are getting more bodies into the box and, with a little more creativity, we can win some games. We are trying to put a team out there that gives the fans what they want and is effective.’

Harris goes on to say that in his playing days he more than concedes he wasn’t the most technical player or the ‘best’ but what he did do regularly was play with his ‘heart on his sleeve’ and that’s what he’s asking from the players because he knows that makes all the difference with the crowd and in general anyway.

‘I wasn’t the best player when I played here but I played with my heart on my sleeve, and these players can do that. All we are talking in terms of the necessary improvement is little things here and there. To be the better side against a good Brighton team, and go on to keep a clean sheet, is a good starting point for us.’
