Millwall boss Harris looking for repeat performance at Boundary Park

Chopper previews Saturday's trip to Oldham

Millwall boss Neil Harris has called on his side to repeat the standard of their performance from Tuesday's win over Southend United when they return to League matters against Oldham Athletic on Saturday (3pm).

The Lions booked their place in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Area Final with a 2-0 success at Roots Hall earlier this week - a display Harris praised his players for.

This weekend Millwall come up against an Oldham side who have lost their last four games, including a 1-0 Emirates FA Cup defeat to Sheffield United last time out. David Dunn's men are 21st in the League One table, 12 points behind The Lions, but Harris is expecting another tough encounter against a Latics side who he says are "getting better all the time".

"Tuesday was a big performance by us, one full of courage, desire and commitment," Chopper told

"I was delighted with it but we quickly turned our attention to Oldham, where we are looking for a repeat performance. We want to be back to winning ways in the League.

"Even though results haven't quite gone in their favour in recent weeks Oldham are improving and getting better all the time, which we have seen from the games we've watched. We are going to have to put in the type of performance we have seen more often than not from the group in the last couple of months if we are to get a result.

"It is another good challenge for us and will be a tough game, but it's one we are very much looking forward to."

Discussing his selection options for this weekend's game, Harris added: "There is always the temptation to stick with the same side after a win.

"We will have to see a bit more of Oldham to decide what their strengths are and to think about how we can affect the game against them.

"At the moment we've not got a very clear picture because we will be checking on the boys right up until kick-off, but whatever team goes out there and plays, and in whatever formation, it will be a tough match."
