Harris hoping Millwall can continue home improvements

Chopper looks ahead to Tuesday night's Cup tie

Millwall boss Neil Harris is hopeful that his side can continue their improved home form when they host Northampton Town in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy tonight (7.45pm).

The Lions have won two of their last three games in SE16, including a victory over Peterborough United in the previous round, and Harris is looking for Millwall to go into the international break on a high by booking their place in the Area Quarter-Finals.

"We're looking to build on our three previous performances at The Den," he said.

"It's a tough one for us because Northampton are a good League Two side with some good individual players also.

"Against Peterborough we relaxed and played with a little bit of a style. That set us on a little bit of a run not just with results, but with performances also, so we will be looking to continue that."

Harris will be forced into numerous changes with Jimmy Abdou (shoulder) and Ed Upson (knee) injured, while Shaun Williams is suspended.

Paris Cowan-Hall (groin) is also sidelined and with David Forde and Shane Ferguson away on international duty, the Lions manager is left with few options in his squad.

"We may have six from the weekend available but we'll have to see how they come through training leading up to the game," he added.

"But this is why you have a squad. We don't want a big one because we are looking for togetherness and competition for places."
