Harris disappointed but not downbeat as Millwall draw with Blackpool

Chopper reviews his side's performance at Bloomfield Road

Millwall manager Neil Harris admitted that conceding a late equaliser to Blackpool was "frustrating" but has told his players not to feel disheartened after a dominant performance at Bloomfield Road.

Mark Beevers netted his fourth goal of the season during the first-half to give The Lions the lead but Blackpool earned a share of the spoils in the 82nd minute with a penalty from Jack Redshaw after Carlos Edwards was sent off for a foul on David Norris in the box.

The final result wasn't a fair reflection on the game itself, however; one which Chopper's side controlled for large parts.

"It's frustrating to be honest but I've told the boys not to feel down," he said.

"When we look back it could be looked at as a good point. We bossed the game for the most part and they didn't look like scoring until the penalty.

"Overall I'm pleased with the performance. The manner in which we conceded the penalty was disappointing but we will bounce back from that.

"We never looked like conceding a goal, which is a big plus, and in the end we just got punished by a slight positional error."

Shaun Williams limped off early in the second-half and Harris says he will be assessed in the coming days.

"It looks like Shaun has a back spasm so we will have to see how he gets on as the week continues.

"Ben Thompson came on and did really well so that's an option in there for us."
