Harris delighted with impact of substitutes

Interim boss Chopper pleased with Magaye Gueye and Nicky Bailey

Neil Harris has praised Nicky Bailey and Magaye Gueye for the role they played after coming off the bench in Millwall's 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic at The Den on Tuesday night.

Bailey replaced the injured Shaun Williams during the first-half and put in an impressive midfield display, while Gueye once again scored after entering the game as a sub - just like he did against Charlton Athletic on Good Friday.

And Harris, whose side face Cardiff City next up, says he is "fortunate" to have such options available to him in his squad.

"In the modern game you need impact subs," he said.

"A lot of football all over the world is stay in the game and then unleash your subs to make a difference.

"Magaye Gueye has certainly got that ability. He has got some terrific talent and it is just about getting the best out of him.

"The game was made for Nicky, just like Charlton was. He's just a winner; a leader.

"I'm so fortunate that if you need to make a substitution because of an injury then you have got the likes of Nicky Bailey to come on and change a game."
