Millwall boss Harris hints at changes for Barnet

Manager Neil looks ahead to Cup test

Neil Harris admits that he could make changes to Millwall's starting line-up for Tuesday night's EFL Cup tie away to Barnet (8pm).

The Lions kicked-off their 2016/17 League season with victory over Oldham Athletic on Saturday and are quickly in Cup action against the League Two side - just as they were at this stage of the competition last year.

Harris is eager for his side to secure early back-to-back victories but has hinted that Tuesday's Xl will have a different look to what Millwall fans saw at The Den on Saturday.

"A few of the boys picked up knocks against Oldham so we will have to assess them," the boss said.

"We don't want to take any risks at this stage of the season so there could be some changes to the team.

"There is nothing to be gained by taking gambles on the fitness of players this early. It's one of several matches we have in a short space of time so we have to manage the squad carefully.

"It will be a tough game, there's no doubt about that. We saw how good Barnet can be under Martin (Allen) in this same competition last season so we're aware of the type of challenge we'll be facing.

"But we go there determined to get a win and build on the promising start we had to the season against Oldham.

"This is a competition we want to do well in because it's all about building momentum and form."
