'There will be no repeat' insists Neil Harris

Millwall manager in defiant mood ahead of Sheffield United clash

Millwall manager Neil Harris was in defiant mood on Friday morning before taking the final training session ahead of Saturday's Den clash with Sheffield United.

Chopper has been heavily quoted this week following Tuesday night's 5-1 defeat at Peterborough United, after which he did not hold back in expressing his deep frustration at the below-par performance of his team.

The Lions boss takes any defeat hard, and he insists that there will be no repeat when Chris Wilder's Blades visit The Den.

"We are all really looking forward to Saturday's game," Chopper told millwallfc.co.uk

"If we could have played this game the day after Peterborough on Wednesday we would have. There will be a reaction from the team on the back of that display and result.

"There will be setbacks and adversity throughout the season, and we had one this week, but it is now about how we react.

"The players are determined to put things right and the game can't come quick enough now."

The Blades have made a sluggish start to the campaign and have yet to win any of their four League and Cup fixtures. The most recent of their three defeats came in midweek when they were beaten 3-0 at home by Southend United.

"Don't be fooled by their slow start to the campaign," Chopper added. "The fact that things haven't quite gone to plan for them yet will make them more determined than ever to put things right.

"It's going to be a meeting of two sides whose pride has been hurt this week and who will be going all-out to make amends."
