Harris pleased with Millwall's forward momentum

Boss Chopper praises his players but also eyes improvement

Millwall manager Neil Harris believes that his side are "moving in the right direction" but also insists that The Lions still have room for improvement in the coming weeks and months.

After a difficult start to the campaign Chopper's charges have been in terrific form in recent times and are currently ninth in the table following a run of seven wins from the last 11 League games.

The Lions are also in the Second Round of the Emirates FA Cup and have reached the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Area Semi-Finals, all of which has pleased Millwall boss Harris, whose side face Colchester United at The Den next up.

"We're definitely a work in progress," he said.

"We have come a long way in a short space of time but as I keep reminding the players we have still got a long way to go.

"I talk a lot about a young squad and I don't always mean age, I mean as a squad that has been put together with a lot of players having left and many who have come through the system to get an opportunity.

"We are moving in the right direction and results certainly prove that. Two defeats in 15 games bodes well, but being a perfectionist I would say that is two too many. Realistically, though, it has been a good couple of months for us. 

"In terms of our League form it is important to be at the top end of the table. We have no expectation level at the moment for us to look at towards the end of the season and we are more than comfortable taking it one game at a time and week-by-week.

"What is important is that the players realise they have done very well so far but we've got a long way to go and a lot of improvement in us."
