Millwall "sharpening up" ahead of season opener, says boss Harris

Manager Neil looking for improvement in both boxes ahead of Shrewsbury test

Millwall boss Neil Harris says his side are where he expected them to be in terms of fitness and preparation for the new campaign.

The Lions have one more pre-season friendly left to play against Portuguese side C.D. Tondela at The Den this Saturday (2pm) before 2015/16 gets underway against Shrewsbury Town on 8th August.

Between now and then, though, Harris says his players will be working hard during training at Calmont Road to improve their sharpness in both boxes.

"We're very much looking forward to it," the manager said of the opening League game.

"I'll see Shrewsbury between now and the start of the season. Micky Mellon is the manager up there and he's a good guy. I've done coaching courses with him before and I know he has a good side with some talented young players, so that game will be a real tough test for us.

"Pre-season has been difficult because we have worked the boys really hard. The games are always the same; you build up slowly and one minute you look great but the next you look rusty. That's pre-season for you.

"We are where we expect to be. The boys are certainly looking forward to the next few training sessions where it is going to be a bit shorter and sharper. It's about sharpening up in both boxes between now and the first game."
