Performance to be proud of

27 December 2013

Chopper speaks - video exclusive

Caretaker manager Neil Harris has outlined two key priorities as he looks to get Millwall's season back on track - cut down on goals conceded and secondly, get a bit of pride back too.

Chopper, appointed joint temporary boss with Scott Fitzgerald following the dismissal of Steve Lomas on Thursday, said: "I was sad for myself and the staff that Steve's gone. He brought me back into the club and I enjoyed working with him.

However results drive this business and ours haven't been good enough.

I have spoken to the chairman and some of the board and Fitz and myself have been asked to take this on game by game, starting on Sunday at Doncaster until the new manager is appointed.

Short term I'm concentrating only on getting a team out there capable of getting a result at Doncaster. Longer term, I'm looking forward to continuing as U21s coach and helping out with the seniors as required.

We've got a few little ideas which we'll try to put across to help the boys. We have to prioritise cutting down on the goals we're conceding particularly from set pieces.

There are players here with good pedigree who are capable of doing better than they have so far, and it's up to us to get the best out of them.

We are looking for a performance which makes the fans proud."
