Millwall boss Harris bemoans individual errors after Gillingham defeat

19 December 2015

Chopper provides his assessment following 3-0 loss

Neil Harris bemoaned individual errors after 10-man Millwall slipped to a 3-0 defeat to Gillingham at The Den on Saturday afternoon.

Dominic Samuel opened the scoring after 20 minutes and just moments later Jordan Archer was shown a straight red card for bringing Cody McDonald down in the box. Bradley Dack smashed the spot-kick past David Forde to double the away side's advantage and they made it three in the closing stages when Samuel slotted home from a tight angle.

But despite sharing his frustration at his side's defending, Harris also praised The Lions for a spirited second-half display.

"They were three frustrating goals - poor ones to give away," he said.

"You certainly can't give good teams two-goal head starts and lose a player and expect to climb the mountain. 

"I'm disappointed with the individual errors for goals. The first goal was poor marking by us on a set-play, which was uncharacteristic. Players have to do better, players have to be stronger, have to organise better and take responsibility.

"Having said that, with 10 men I thought we had a right go second-half and I was delighted with the performance. The third goal was a kick in the teeth because we were the better team in the second-half and we could have finished the game on a real positive."
