Harris takes heart from encouraging display

Chopper reviews his first game as interim manager

Neil Harris said there were "plenty of positives" to take from Millwall's performance at the Macron Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Two first-half goals from Adam Le Fondre secured Bolton's 2-0 win but The Lions put in an impressive display, with Lee Gregory and Aiden O'Brien both drawing great saves out of Trotters keeper Ben Amos in the second period.

And Chopper, reflecting on his first game as interim Millwall manager, believed their display gives his side a platform to build from over the remaining nine games of the season.

"There are plenty of positives for us to look at," he said. 

"Obviously the goals we conceded were poor, and their second one was a key moment in the game. But we created more chances and were the better team over the course of the match.

"I'm sure they will be wondering how they have won the game but that isn't a comfort for us because we need to be winning matches with the situation we are in.

"If we keep playing like that then I'm sure we can get some victories.

"The intensity of our play was a real positive for me. We have dominated possession but the difference, unfortunately, was what happened in the final third.

"We are taking one game at a time in our approach and are asking the boys to play a different style. They did well with that.

"All of the fans who have paid good money to come up here and watch the game stayed behind to clap their team off. That was telling."
