Harris previews Millwall's trip to Colchester

1 April 2016

The boss looks for a repeat performance

Neil Harris believes that Millwall will have to be every bit as good as they were against Burton Albion if they are to get a result away to Colchester United this Saturday.

The Lions beat League One's leaders 2-0 at The Den on Easter Monday in a result which pushed Harris' side back up to fifth in the table ahead of this weekend's trip to Colchester, who are in embroiled in a relegation dogfight.

But The U's appear to be hitting form at just the right time having won back-to-back games and Harris has been impressed with their recent resurgence.

Speaking ahead of the game, the Millwall boss said: "I thought we were excellent on Monday. We produced a proper Millwall performance, which really pleases me, and we have to take every bit of ability and aggression that we showed then into a difficult game on Saturday.

"I saw Colchester play at Coventry on Tuesday and I thought they were really good, especially in the first-half. They have some real quality with the football and a desire about them to win games. They will be a much different team to the one we faced at The Den earlier in the season.

"There is some freedom to their play and they have found a run and some momentum. As we know ourselves that is really key.

"We will have to defend really well and after that we will focus on ourselves and our ability, and the good form we have been in for so long. We will have to match the work rate we showed on Monday and need every bit of confidence that we've shown in the last few months to get a positive result."
