Harris disappointed with 'lacklustre' Millwall display

The boss provides his post-match assessment

Neil Harris admitted that his Millwall side were 'lacklustre' during Saturday's 0-0 draw with Colchester United.

The Lions ended both halves very strongly, particularly the second, but a resolute U's defence held up to everything the away side threw at them.

Millwall did have three good chances to score what would have been a winner, all during the opening 45 minutes, but couldn't beat Colchester keeper Elliott Parish, and Harris couldn't hide his disappointment after the final whistle.

"Full credit to Colchester for the way they defended," he said.

"We were really lacklustre in the first-half and were as much on the backfoot as we have been for a long time. Having said that we had three glorious chances to score. 

"In the second-half we increased the tempo and were a lot brighter in possession and got into good areas, with positive deliveries into the box, but we couldn't find the end product.

"I'm delighted with the clean sheet and the attitude of the boys was fantastic, but I just didn't think we were ourselves today for whatever reason. That is something for me and my coaching staff to look at and if we ever needed a reminder of how tough this division is and how much of a challenge it is to get over the line then it was today."
