Manager Neil Harris has said he was delighted to see Millwall’s dominance over Swindon Town in our Den based two nil victory yesterday.

Audio – Harris On Swindon Win

Speaking to the official site with first half goals from Lee Gregory and Aiden O’Brien doing the damage to the visitors, Harris said the scoreline didn’t really do our overall performance and control of the game justice, as for him it could’ve been a four or five nil margin.

Whilst it wasn’t that, it did notch up three straight wins on home soil and a clear turn around in Den based form of late.

‘First and foremost I’m delighted with a clean sheet. I’m delighted with our professionalism to win the game. Some of our play was outstanding and we were really good going forward.’

Harris went on to say that in periods of the game we had to be patient and wait for our chance to go at them because they are a good footballing side with plenty of quality and pace of their own on the counter, so we had to be careful but he thought the overall organisation and movement was ‘great’.

‘It was just the execution itself which could’ve been slightly better. On a whole, if we are sitting here having got five or six, we could’ve still been talking about more. I’ve got a few goalscorers in the dressing room who will be a little bit disappointed not to have added to the tally. We should’ve scored more goals but overall I’m delighted with the clean sheet and the attacking play.’

With Gregory and O’Brien being the goal scorers, Harris went on to say each of them could’ve had a hattrick and whilst they will take the headlines as it is, we should remember the team performance and the build up play as well.

‘I thought my centre-forwards were outstanding. It’s hard as a centre-forward to play here sometimes when you haven’t got the ball. I know that. You have to work hard, you have to set a tempo and show the crowd that you’re doing the right things, and I thought Steve and Lee did that. At times we couldn’t get near the ball because they overload the areas and they pass it, so our shape into two banks of four was spot on. I look forward to watching back how good we were. It’s a pleasing afternoon all round. We are edging towards where we want to be in regards to our home form.’
