Boss Chopper has plenty to say ahead of Saturday's visit of Bradford City

Millwall manager Neil Harris says that his squad have "momentum and confidence" - but insists that they are nowhere near the finished article ahead of Saturday's game against Bradford City at The Den.

Tuesday night's victory over Doncaster Rovers was Millwall's fourth straight home success and an eighth win from the last 12 games.

That run of form, Harris says, has put a smile on the face of everyone at the training ground, but the boss believes that his squad have plenty of room for improvement in the coming weeks and months.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's visit of Phil Parkinson's Bantams, who have won three of their last five games, Harris told "We've definitely got momentum and confidence at the moment.

"We are growing as a group during what has been a tough run of fixtures. It is great when the boys have a set to time to report for training and you come down half an hour early and they are all sitting there chatting and laughing. You know you have a winning group when that is happening and there are smiles on faces.

"Everybody is fresh, bright and raring to go. When you go on to the training pitch for a bit of recovery time the players want to join in and do more. We have to manage them and make sure they are fresh for Saturday. It is a lot of games but the boys are fit and hungry to play.

"We are just finding a little bit of stability. The League table is starting to take shape a little bit but we are not stupid enough to think 'right that is it, we are in amongst it now'. We have to earn the right to climb up the table.

"I keep talking about small steps. We are building and we are a young group, not just in age but also in terms of coming together.

"We are enjoying it but we have a long way to go and are nowhere near the finished article. We have so much improvement left in us and that just takes time."
