Manager Neil Harris has said that Millwall need to find a better consistency following the JPT defeat to Oxford last night.

Hosting Michael Appleton’s boys at The Den for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Area Final first leg, Millwall went down two nil on the night and now have an uphill battle in the second leg.

With a quick turn around in fixtures with Port Vale this weekend on home soil, Harris knows we need to step up again to draw a line under the last performance and keep our promotion hopes going.

Speaking to the official site a disappointed but optimistic gaffer explained.

‘We are currently on the fringes of the top six, as are our opponents, and the reason for that is we have so far failed to find the consistency required to be better placed. On so many occasions, as against Gillingham and Walsall for example, we have been excellent for periods, but not for long enough to get the wins we need.’

Harris went on to say that we’ve shown we can be dominant in matches so the aim has to be to repeat those levels of performances far more often.

‘Recently we have proved we can be dominant, as we were at Southend, or resolute like last Saturday at Oldham. The challenge for us on Sunday, and for the rest of the season, is to find the balance between being defensively strong and difficult to break down, and getting bodies forward in numbers to hurt the opposition. It is not enough to do that for periods in games, we have to achieve it for 90 minutes, week-in week-out if we are to get to where we want to be.’
