Millwall boss Harris wary of 'dangerous' Colchester team

Chopper looks ahead to a return to League action at The Den

Millwall manager Neil Harris is expecting a tough test from what he has described as a 'dangerous' Colchester United side at The Den on Saturday.

The Lions have not played a League game since the draw with Bradford City at the end of October but have remained in the mix for a Play-Off position and go into Saturday's match knowing that a win could lift them into the top six.

But Chopper, whose side are looking to extend their unbeaten run of matches to nine, has warned against any complacency ahead of this weekend's encounter with The U's.

"They are a dangerous side with some good players, especially going forward," he said.

"A bit like ourselves they have had some real good under-21 players who have come through and we know all about boys like Macauley Bonne.

"They have certainly got good pedigree in their squad and they have had some good results this year. Tony (Humes) has done a fantastic job so we know what we face and, as ever, we are diligent and respectful to that, but then we will worry about ourselves, what we are good at and how we can hurt them." 

Millwall's most recent fixture was in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy last Tuesday night and Harris hopes that his squad will have benefitted from some additional rest time going into a busy schedule of games.

"It's really good to get back in action," he said. "Plymouth was only just over a week ago but it seems like a long time.

"When you are playing well and getting results you want to play continuously so it will certainly be good to be back at The Den on Saturday.

"The boys have had a good balance, we hope, between resting their legs, preparing for the next run of games and also getting some work into them.

"Over the busy schedule with seven games in three weeks the squad is going to be important."
