Millwall boss Harris wary of Peterborough strengths

Lions manager Neil previews Tuesday's trip to The ABAX

Neil Harris says he is pleased with what has been a "really positive" start to the season by his Millwall side but is wary of the threat posed by Peterborough United ahead of Tuesday night's game between the two clubs.

The Lions have picked up four points in the League so far and progressed to the Second Round of the EFL Cup with a 4-0 victory over Barnet last Tuesday.

Tuesday's trip to the ABAX Stadium is a fourth game inside 10 days for Millwall and the schedule shows no signs of letting up with a further four fixtures to follow in the next two weeks.

But Harris insists that his side must get on with what is a "relentless" opening to 2016/17 as they bid to build on their unbeaten start.

"If we look back on the first three games as a whole it's been really positive and I'm very pleased," he said.

"Games are relentless at this stage of the season. It's bizarre how you have a summer off and then you fit seven games into a month, or something like that. 

"It's crazy but it is the same for everybody so we get on with it and look forward to the challenge."

Discussing Peterborough's strengths ahead of Tuesday's game, Harris added: "It's another challenge, like MK Dons, against a very possession-based side.

"There is a lot of attacking flair in their group and risk and reward in how they play. They leave themselves open at the back sometimes but they're very exciting going forward, and their philosophy as a football club is to create chances, score goals and be entertaining.

"They are difficult to play against so we'll have to defend very well and try to use the ball to the best of our ability."
