'That was totally unacceptable' says Neil Harris

Lions boss demands an improvement as unbeaten run comes to an end

Neil Harris made no excuses and described his side's 5-1 defeat at Peterborough United as 'totally unacceptable' as Millwall crashed to their first defeat of the season at the ABAX Stadium.

The Lions boss could not hide his fury and vented his frustrations post-match just minutes after the final whistle.

Chopper said: "I thought we were poor from start to finish. Some of our decision making was ridiculous. However much luck we have or don't have, you have to be calm and make good decisions.

"For periods of the game we went into our shell and panicked. That is not my team.  We can have one of two having an off game, but tonight we had pretty much everyone.

"I'm hurting and the players in the dressing room are hurting, some more than others. I have had a few choice words and I will be having some more tomorrow.

"We gave the ball away cheaply. The players will be embarrassed. We have the perfect opportunity to put that right on Saturday. If I had to pick a game for us to play in front of our supporters it would be against Sheffield United.

"We have to take this on the chin and move forward. I will pick a team on Saturday that will give the fans a proper performance."

Chopper had a special mention for those Lions fans who made the trip up to Peterborough, stressing: "I am grateful to the supporters and particularly those that stayed until the end. I couldn't blame anyone for leaving early tonight. I probably would have done so myself if I could."
