Harris pleased with Den dominance as Millwall ease past Swindon

Chopper reserves special praise for strike duo after another promising display in SE16

Millwall manager Neil Harris couldn't hide his delight after watching The Lions beat Swindon Town 2-0 at The Den on Saturday afternoon.

First-half goals from Lee Gregory and Aiden O'Brien did the damage, but the scoreline didn't paint the full picture on an afternoon when Millwall could and probably should have scored several more.

The result made it three straight wins at The Den in all competitions and Harris, whose side face Blackpool next up, was full of praise for the way in which Millwall overcame The Robins.

"First and foremost I'm delighted with a clean sheet," he said.

"I'm delighted with our professionalism to win the game. Some of our play was outstanding and we were really good going forward.

"We had to be patient at times against a footballing team and then counter with pace. Our movement was great; it was just the execution itself which could've been slightly better.

"On a whole, if we are sitting here having got five or six, we could've still been talking about more.

"I've got a few goalscorers in the dressing room who will be a little bit disappointed not to have added to the tally.

"We should've scored more goals but overall I'm delighted with the clean sheet and the attacking play."

Harris reserved special praise for strike duo Gregory and Steve Morison, who on another day could've each had hat-tricks.

"I thought my centre-forwards were outstanding," the boss added.

"It's hard as a centre-forward to play here sometimes when you haven't got the ball. I know that.

"You have to work hard, you have to set a tempo and show the crowd that you're doing the right things, and I thought Steve and Lee did that.

"At times we couldn't get near the ball because they overload the areas and they pass it, so our shape into two banks of four was spot on. I look forward to watching back how good we were.

"It's a pleasing afternoon all round. We are edging towards where we want to be in regards to our home form."
