Coach praises young Lions

Neil Harris expressed his delight at Millwall U21s 4-2 victory over a QPR side coached by his old pal Marc Bircham on Tuesday afternoon.

Goals from Aidan O'Brien (2), Charlie Penny and Niall McManus saw The Lions recover from two goals down to win, and Chopper was fulsome in his praise for the Millwall youngsters.

He said: "We made a woefully slow start and found ourselves two down in the first five minutes.

I was thinking to myself, 'I'm going to learn more about this group in the next 80 odd minutes than I have all season'.

The response they showed was phenomenal. To come back from 2-0 down to win any game takes some doing, and the lads showed tremendous character and determination to do that today."
