Report: Millwall U21s 0 Palace 1

23 December 2014

Full-time from Calmont Road

Lions coach Neil Harris was full of praise for his U21 charges in spite of seeing them go down to a last minute deflected goal against Crystal Palace.

"Hard as it might be to believe, that was probably our best performance of the season," stated Chopper.

"I couldn't fault the lads at all, we played some truly excellent football, passed and moved well, played some great one-twos around the box, but we simply couldn't stick the ball in the net.

"Then, to add insult to injury, Palace managed to score with probably only their second shot of the game which gave the scoreline an even more unjust look. Afterwards, though, I just told them how proud I was of them all at the end of what has been a very emotional few days.

"Ben Thompson is a very popular member of our squad, and the news that he had lost his younger brother Jack so suddenly and unexpectedly at the weekend affected all the boys.

"Football is important to all of us, but families are more important. On behalf of everyone connected with the Millwall family, we are there for Ben and his family however and whenever they need us."

Millwall: King, Siafa, Hoyte, Nelson, Wood, Webb (Bryon, 90mins), Powell, O'Brien, Pavey (Philpot, 80mins), Onyedinma (Newby, 46mins), Marquis. Subs not used: Girling, Parr.
