Millwall looking forward to Burton challenge, says Harris

Lions boss Chopper previews Tuesday night's game

Millwall manager Neil Harris says his side face a big test against Burton Albion tonight - but insists that The Lions are very much looking forward to the challenge.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's Brewers could go top of League One with a win but Harris' Millwall know that a win for them would lift The Lions into the Play-Off positions.

Tuesday night's game marks the first-ever meeting between Burton and Millwall and Harris says he is keen to see how his players respond to losing their last away game - a 2-1 reverse at Fleetwood Town a week ago.

"Jimmy has put together a very hard-working, well organised and well drilled Burton team," he said.

"On top of their strong work ethic they have some real quality players in their squad so we know how big a test it is going to be going up there. But it is a challenge that we are very much looking forward to and I'm keen to see how the players respond to what happened in the last away game.

"After Fleetwood I challenged the players to show a response against Bury and they did exactly that by putting in an outstanding performance and picking up what was a very good win. But now we have to get back to winning ways away from home against a Burton team who will want to go top of the table on Tuesday night.

"We will make sure that the boys are fully prepared for what they will bring to the table but it is also down to us to make the most of our strengths and cause them as many problems as possible."
