Harris eyes consistency from 'growing' Millwall

29 January 2016

The boss previews Saturday's visit of Crewe

Neil Harris is looking for Millwall to build on recent wins over Port Vale and Chesterfield with another positive result against Crewe Alexandra at The Den on Saturday (3pm).

Three straight League wins have seen The Lions climb into the top six with 19 matches left to play this season.

But with Sheffield United, Peterborough and Southend all amongst the chasing pack, Harris knows his side have to show consistency if they are to remain in League One's Play-Off places.

"We're heading towards the business end of the season now," he said.

"It is at this stage where every single game becomes incredibly difficult to win because there can be so much at stake.

"But everyone who has watched our last two games will have seen some positive signs from a team which is really growing.

"Against Port Vale, especially in the first-half, we played some excellent free-flowing football and scored impressive goals. At Chesterfield it was entirely different; we had to grind out a result against a team on the up and while it wasn't pretty at times, I was delighted with the spirit and determination to gain all three points, especially having to come from behind to do so.

"That was a huge positive because we need to have that ability to come through difficult spells in matches and show the type of know-how and quality you need to bounce back from going behind in games.

"We have to look to try and be consistent with our performances, so on Saturday we have to try and repeat the positives shown against Port Vale and Chesterfield."

Discussing this weekend's opponents, Harris added: "We're facing a Crewe side with so much to play for.

"They are in a difficult position in the League, but yet they still go out and express themselves in terms of how they play in each and every game.

"It is going to be another tough game because in the last week or so they have picked up a couple of really good results."
