Harris expects an "extremely difficult test"

Interim boss Chopper looks ahead to Ewood Park trip

Despite stopping short of labelling it a 'must-win', interim Millwall manager Neil Harris admits that tonight's match against Blackburn Rovers is a "huge game" for The Lions.

A victory would take Millwall to within one point of the Championship safety zone with two matches left to play, though Rotherham will have a game in hand on The Lions.

Millwall's improvement under Harris continued with a hard-fought 0-0 draw against Cardiff City on Saturday and Chopper believes they will have to be at their very best to overcome a free-scoring Blackburn side.

"It's a huge game for the club with the situation we're in," Harris said.

"We know it is going to be an extremely difficult test. They've got some really good players and an exciting style of play.

"The goals they have got in the team are huge. They have got an expensive squad with some real firepower.

"It's another challenge for us but is one we are certainly looking forward to."

Harris will once again be without Shaun Cummings, Ed Upson and Shaun Williams, and admits that his side's busy recent schedule has placed extra importance on this evening's team selection.

"We will pick an Xl we feel is capable of competing and getting a result," Harris said.

"There is a lot of thought going into what side we are going to pick.

"At the moment we are looking like a good group of players. The work ethic, the togetherness and the bond in the group are outstanding. That certainly makes it easier for me."
