Harris looking for improvement despite Millwall's win over Doncaster

28 October 2015

The boss praises two-goal striker Morison but says The Lions will get better

Millwall manager Neil Harris insisted that his side have plenty of room for improvement despite earning their fourth straight home win with a 2-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday night.

Steve Morison scored twice inside the opening 10 minutes - the second a superb volley - but The Lions had further chances to make the result even more comfortable.

Darren Ferguson's Doncaster side enjoyed spells of possession in SE16, especially during the first-half, but couldn't break down a stubborn Lions defence.

And it was that solidity which most pleased Harris, whose side face Bradford City next up.

"Overall I'm delighted with the win and the three points," he said. "I'm certainly very pleased with the clean sheet.

"We were not at our best tonight, that's for sure. I wasn't a happy man at half-time but I told the players and in the second-half we did improve.

"There were some positive passages of play for us and what is pleasing is the spirit the group showed once again.

"What tonight has proved is that while we are making small steps forward we can get better. And we will."

Discussing the performance of Morison, who now has five to his name so far this season, Harris added: "They were two really good goals from Steve.

"Yet again I thought his performance was outstanding. He led the line well and is always an outlet for us going forward.

"Steve will probably admit that there have been games where he has played even better and not scored, but his performance was still very good and I'm delighted that he has been rewarded with the winning goals."
