"We were excellent between the two boxes," says ChopperNeil Harris said his Millwall players couldn't have put any more into their performance during Tuesday night's 0-0 draw with Brighton at The Den.
The Lions were arguably the better side over the course of the 90 minutes but Joe Bennett's free-kick, which hit the crossbar, was the closest either side came to an opener.
And interim manager Neil, whose side face Brentford next up, believed all that was lacking from his team's display was a clinical edge.
"The boys couldn't give me any more apart from a goal," Chopper said.
"We were excellent between the two boxes. Unfortunately that final ball was lacking just a little bit.
"We are getting more bodies into the box and, with a little more creativity, we can win some games.
"We are trying to put a team out there that gives the fans what they want and is effective. I wasn't the best player when I played here but I played with my heart on my sleeve, and these players can do that.
"All we are talking in terms of the necessary improvement is little things here and there.
"To be the better side against a good Brighton team, and go on to keep a clean sheet, is a good starting point for us."
