Manager Neil Harris has given his thoughts on an ‘unacceptable’ defeat to Swindon Town on Saturday.

Making the trip to the County Ground, Millwall suffered a one nil defeat on the day to a 95th minute stoppage time winner and with the hosts dominating the telling statistics and Millwall only getting one shot on target, Harris was far from pleased with the performance on the day.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, a frustrated manager explained that the manner of the defeat, as we lost our 16 game unbeaten run, had been ‘disappointing’.

‘Our quality on the ball was awful. We lacked energy and we lacked legs. A Millwall team should be coming here today and imposing themselves on the game. We had moments of that and got into good positions with the ball, but we didn’t use it wisely – that’s certainly a frustration.’

Harris went on to say.

‘The facts are one defeat in 17, but today is not acceptable. If we’re to push ourselves back into the Play-Offs, then we need to perform better than that on Tuesday evening. The disappointment for me is the manner of the defeat. We didn’t create enough chances and the players didn’t show enough bravery on the ball. We looked weak mentally and physically.’

With games coming thick and fast now as we head towards the end of the League One campaign, it’s Sheffield United up next at Bramall Lane on Tuesday evening and Harris suggested changes would be made following that performance.

‘If I feel some of my players have played too much football, then I’ll speak to my staff and we’ll make changes. You want to reward people for playing consistently well – that’s been fruitful for us over the last couple of months. These boys have been great for me. We’ve got a real good group. I’ve been loyal to them. But it now becomes about picking the right team to win the game.’
