Manager Neil Harris has credited an ‘outstanding performance’ by Millwall in the League One Play Off semi final against Scunthorpe.

Taking the game at Glanford Park three two with a brace from Steve Morison and a Lee Gregory goal, Millwall booked their place at Wembley against Bradford City in the Play Off Final.

A delighted Harris told the official site in his post game press conference.

‘To come away from home and win a game like that is testament to my players. We went a goal down but they showed a fantastic response to equalise on the stroke of half-time, which was a crucial moment in the game. That gave us a lot of belief and it would’ve affected how the Scunthorpe players were feeling in their dressing room during the interval. My players fed off it and for the first 20 minutes of the second-half we were tremendous. Overall it was an outstanding performance.’

With Millwall making Wembley for the second year running, Harris knew what it was in terms of an achievement but he also half joked that he had to be sorry for the fans because it’s not exactly a cheap day out.

‘To get to Wembley for the second year in a row is a terrific achievement and I’m feeling very proud and pleased for everyone connected with the club tonight. My players have shown what incredible strength of character they’ve got yet again. We had to show it at Bristol Rovers last Sunday when everyone else had their Play-Off place secure and they’ve shown it again this evening. There was a lot of talk that Scunthorpe had done the hard job by getting a draw in the first leg but I know my players and I knew we could come to Glanford Park and win. I’m absolutely delighted.’


‘But the job is nowhere near done. We’ve got a shot at promotion but Bradford will provide us with a really stern test. We’ve had two tough, even games against them this season and I’m sure it will be the same again. It’s down to use now to use the experience of last season to our advantage.’

The BBC had him saying about our fifth visit to Wembley in the last eight years.

‘I’ll have to apologise to our fans, I suppose. You have to remember it’s not cheap going to Wembley. It’s not cheap taking the kids, taking your wife, and your uncle and aunt, and your mother-in-law who wants to go for the first time in 15 years to a game of football, but they’ll come. Bradford will bring a big crowd, it’ll be an almost sold-out stadium I’m sure and they’ll make some noise.’
