Chopper reviews Tuesday night's narrow defeat to Fleetwood Town

Neil Harris described Millwall's 2-1 defeat to Fleetwood Town on Tuesday night as a "learning curve" for his side.

Second-half goals from Eggert Jonsson and Bobby Grant were enough for Steven Pressley's men, with Byron Webster's stoppage time strike nothing more than a consolation for The Lions.

Heavy wind and rain at Highbury Stadium had a big impact on proceedings but Harris refused to make any excuses after a result which ended his side's unbeaten run.

"We got beaten by the better team," he said. "On the night we were second best all over the park.

"In games like that we have to be better physically and mentally but in no way am I knocking the players because they have been brilliant over the last nine games.

"As far as I am concerned there is no doom and gloom. We're disappointed and we're frustrated, but that game and the result is a learning curve for us and we can still take some positives from it.

"The conditions were difficult but they were the same for both teams so it is in no way an excuse. They certainly played to the conditions better than us but ultimately what won them the game was a 25-minute spell of football."
