Harris looking for Millwall to maintain promotion pressure

26 February 2016

The manager looks ahead to Saturday's game against Doncaster Rovers

Millwall boss Neil Harris has called on his side to continue putting pressure on teams around them in the table with a victory over Doncaster Rovers this Saturday (3pm).

The Lions climbed up to fifth in League One following last weekend's 3-0 win over Peterborough United and know that another victory this Saturday could see Millwall close the gap between them and second place to just three points, providing other results go their way.

Harris' men are also eyeing a sixth consecutive win on the road in all competitions but the Lions manager says now is not the time to pat themselves on the back for their work so far.

"12 away wins, nine of which have been in the League, has been really pleasing," the boss said.

"But this is not the time for looking back and saying how well we've done. That time will come in May or June.

"It's all about winning the next game because we have to put teams under pressure, those who are around us and above us.

"We have to keep the momentum going, which is the biggest thing. But also we want to keep the enjoyment factor."

On Saturday Millwall face a Doncaster side who have lost four of their last six games but Harris is adamant that Rovers have the required quality to provide a stern test for his men.

"We're looking forward to this one against an experienced manager who has some good players," he added.

"They've had a difficult run so will come out firing and have a right go at us.

"We have to make sure that we are disciplined, aggressive and organised and use that momentum and confidence that we've got at the moment."
