Harris hopes for long-term home improvements

16 April 2015

Form at The Den is pivotal, Chopper believes

Interim Millwall boss Neil Harris hopes that the club's improvement in form at The Den will continue for seasons to come.

Since taking charge of the first team last month, Harris has overseen two wins from four on home soil having previously seen the club go 13 matches without a victory in SE16.

Those two victories have boosted Millwall's hopes of pulling off what would be a miraculous escape this campaign - but Harris is looking at the long-term picture when it comes to what he would like to see happen when opposition teams visit The Den.

"It's about this group of players realising that this is our home," he said.

"I played in teams when nobody wanted to come and play here. You would beat teams before they turned up and it has to go back to that mentality. It's about next season and the season after.

"We've gone back to Millwall basics and in two high pressure games - Charlton, a local derby, and Wigan, for what it meant to both clubs - I'm proud of the fact we've scored goals and won both games."
