Chopper's consistency challenge

15 January 2016

Lions manager Neil Harris relishing opportunity to get back in action

Lions boss Neil Harris is relishing the opportunity for his side to put the memories of last Thursday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat behind them by beating Port Vale in Sunday's battle of the ‘Play-Off peripherals’ at The Den (kick-off 3pm).

He said: "We are currently on the fringes of the top six, as are our opponents,  and the reason for that is we have so far failed to find the consistency required to be better placed.

"On so many occasions, as against Gillingham and Walsall for example, we have been excellent for periods, but not for long enough to get the wins we need.

"Recently we have proved we can be dominant, as we were at Southend, or resolute like last Saturday at Oldham. The challenge for us on Sunday, and for the rest of the season, is to find the balance between being defensively strong and difficult to break down, and getting bodies forward in numbers to hurt the opposition.

"It is not enough to do that for periods in games, we have to achieve it for 90 minutes, week-in week-out if we are to get to where we want to be."
