Millwall manager Neil Harris has spoken of his frustration at the side’s performance in the defeat to Oxford United at the weekend.

Hosting the side at The Den for the game Millwall went down three nil on the day and a poor start saw us two behind in the opening ten minutes and with only one effort mustered on target it was one we couldn’t claw ourselves back into.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, Harris knew it had been poor and there was no getting away from that.

‘The overriding emotion is that we were really poor today. There was only one Millwall team on the pitch in the first-half and they had yellow shirts on. For 17 games, we’ve been fantastic here and overrun every team – including three Premier League teams – but we perform like that in our last home game of the season. That’s disappointing.’

With results elsewhere at the weekend seeing us remain in sixth place in the table despite the defeat, the Play Offs are in our hands and Harris wants the team to show that it was a blip given recent performances when we head to Bristol Rovers next weekend.

‘As bad as we were, what a great position to be in, in 6th spot with one game to go. What a great opportunity we have got. We were hugely disappointing today, but, our fate is in our hands. If you said to me around November that we’d be going to Bristol Rovers to win our place in the Play-Offs, I’d have snapped your hand off.’

A draw may be enough but all three points guarantees it, so that has to be the aim.
