Lions manager takes positives from DW Stadium draw

Millwall manager Neil Harris looked on the bright side as his charges made it five matches unbeaten on the road in League One this season with a pulsating 2-2 draw at Wigan Athletic on Tuesday night.

Despite going a goal behind to Michael Jacobs' 53rd-minute strike, Chopper's men responded with a quick-fire double from sub Fred Onyedinma (69mins) and Mark Beevers just five minutes later.

Wigan grabbed a last-ditch equaliser in injury-time through sub Will Grigg, but Chopper remained upbeat at his team's display.

"I'm delighted firstly with the way my team responded to going a goal behind. It looked like we had the ascendancy, the momentum and we looked fine," he said. "I was frustrated with the last goal because we didn't quite get the luck of the break in our penalty area and when the ball fell to him he swivels and hits it, and it hits two of my players before it goes in.

"It's a point gained though definitely, so I'm pleased with that. We have been really good of late; it was four wins in five and now it's four wins in six with a draw. There has been a lot of progression in our play and our performances and results on the road have shown that we have a real bit of spirit about us."
