Chopper's delight

Coach praises team effort

Neil Harris celebrated his first competitive win as a Millwall coach when his Under 21 charges (featuring the odd 'over-age' player) came from behind to beat Crystal Palace in the Development League at Selhurst Park on Tuesday night.

A brace of free-kicks from Martyn Woolford saw The Lions home and Chopper was more than pleased with his side's efforts.

He said: "To be fair to Palace, they had a very strong team out and were the better side for long periods of the game.
But credit to our lads for the way they hung in there, stayed in the game and then when the chances came we took advantage of them.

The attitude and desire of everyone was spot on. The senior lads led by example and I'm sure the manager will have been pleased with their contribution. Andy Marshall in goal and young centre back Sid Nelson deserve a special mention,  but I've been very impressed with these youngsters overall and I'm enjoying working with them.

We now have to see if we can carry on where we left off against Swansea at The Den on Friday afternoon (2pm). It would be great to see a few Lions fans there giving the boys some encouragement."
