Lions boss delighted with winning habit

Lions boss Neil Harris admitted his side were not at their best against Gillingham on Friday night, but there were enough positives in their display to get the job done in a feisty affair at The Den.

He said: "I thought that was our poorest performance in the three games over the Christmas period, and credit to Gillingham who made it difficult for us even with 10 men.

"It was scrappy at times and certainly wasn't pretty to watch, but in derby games like this it is all about the result.

"We lacked a little bit of composure on regaining the ball and we probably made it more difficult than we should have done, but it was all about getting across the line and we're more than pleased to have won three games in a row.

"We defended with good shape but we didn't take care of the ball for periods in the first half especially. However, again there was no faulting the players for effort and desire.

"Now the question is can we go again at Wimbledon on Monday? It will be every bit as combative as this was, so the importance of having a competitive and healthy squad will come to the fore."
