Harris praises attacking quartet

Development Squad boss Chopper assesses 3-3 draw

Millwall U21s manager Neil Harris praised his attacking quartet after an entertaining 3-3 draw with in-form Swansea City on Tuesday afternoon.

Aiden O'Brien, Jamie Philpot and John Marquis were all on target against The Swans, whilst Alfie Pavey, the fourth striker in Chopper's forward line, also had chances to hit the back of the net.

Despite drawing with a Swans side searching for their sixth straight win, however, Lions legend Chopper wasn't best pleased with his team's overall performance.

"Bizarrely I was a bit disappointed with how we played," he told

"In some of our recent games, even in the ones we have lost, we performed better. The Crystal Palace game was our best display of the season and this wasn't quite up to the same standards.

"Our structure wasn't as good as I would have liked and I wasn't happy with the manner of the goals we conceded.

"That said, I was delighted to have three strikers all score. Alfie also had a couple of chances to get a goal and going forward, with strikers in each of the front four positions, we looked a real handful with plenty of pace and power.

"I was most pleased with Jamie, who has a really good goalscoring record for the U21s at the moment."
