Harris looking for Millwall to maintain Play-Off pressure

22 January 2016

The boss previews Saturday's trip to Chesterfield

Neil Harris has called on his side to maintain their pressure on League One's top six with a victory away to Chesterfield this Saturday.

The Lions sit just one point away from the Play-Off places following last weekend's 3-1 win over Port Vale and could leapfrog Peterborough and Sheffield United on Saturday should they earn all three points and other results go their way.

Millwall will be up against a resurgent Chesterfield side, however, who produced a stunning 7-1 victory over Shrewsbury Town in their most recent home match.

"We want that momentum and to build pressure on the teams above us," Harris said.

"Our aim is to keep improving all the time and winning games gives you confidence.

"Danny (Wilson) has gone in there and made a real impact, as you would expect from a senior manager. His record speaks for itself so I've got a lot of respect for him.

"They had a great win against Shrewsbury in their last home game so we will look at their strengths. We know they have a squad with ability, just as they showed at The Den earlier in the season.

"We are coming off the back of a win in the League and we go to Chesterfield really thoughtful towards the opposition, meticulous in our preparation but also focused on us and how we can create chances and score goals."

Lions fans will hope that attacking trio Steve Morison, Lee Gregory and Aiden O'Brien can continue their impressive form at the Proact Stadium, but Harris is putting no pressure on his three forwards to further improve their goal tally.

"I said at the start of the season that we would have an attacking intent but it takes time to get free-flowing football and to really nail down what you want," the boss added.

"To have three players into double figures with 20 League games of the season to go is a huge bonus but there is no pressure on those three to hit certain targets. We just want them to be free from injury and scoring goals."
