The 'Millwall way'

Harris & Fitzgerald praise defending in Doncaster draw

Caretaker managers Neil Harris and Scott Fitzgerald had nothing but praise for their players after seeing them keep a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw with Doncaster Rovers.

The Lions had their fair share of opportunities to open the scoring before substitute Federico Macheda hit a post in a late Rovers rally, and overall the duo were pleased to come away with a point - Millwall's first in five away games.

"We have plenty of quality and going forward we created chances," Harris said. "On another day we could've won it. We pressed the ball all over the park and that's the Millwall way.

"Overall we are very pleased with the clean sheet. Defensively we were good and from the first minute until the last the boys were terrific - just as they have been since Scott and I have taken them."

Fitzgerald added: "We have to pride ourselves on clean sheets and that was the number one plan. Regardless of League positions, we knew it would be a tough game, but the lads defended very well.

"We made some changes and we want the boys to play with high energy. That may mean some changes against Leicester on Wednesday, and whilst it will be tough, we will be up for it."
