Harris hails 'outstanding' player response

13 March 2015

Chopper looks ahead to his first game in charge

Interim Millwall boss Neil Harris says the players have been 'outstanding' since he has taken over and admits that he even had to bring one training session to a premature end because of their efforts.

Chopper faces his first game in charge against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday and is looking for his Millwall side to come out fighting as they begin a 10-game battle to secure Championship safety.

"The players have all been absolutely outstanding," he said. "It is always difficult because some players feel responsible for the manager losing his job, and some will be relieved because they think they will get an opportunity.

"I had to finish the first training session early because the tempo of it, and the way I think they wanted to impress me, was vast. I didn't want them to burn out early in the week.

"We are in a really precarious position and completely up against it at the moment, but we're going to have a right good go at this.

"Sometimes when the chips are down you have to come out fighting - and we are going to do that."
