Harris looking for Millwall to rediscover their 'rhythm'

8 January 2016

The boss previews Saturday's game away to Oldham Athletic

Neil Harris believes that Millwall need to find their 'rhythm' again - starting this Saturday away to Oldham Athletic.

The Lions have produced an inconsistent run of results in recent weeks with last month's 4-0 win over Southend United sandwiched in between narrow defeats to Walsall and Barnsley.

And Harris, who has signed Jed Wallace on loan from Wolves ahead of this weekend's rescheduled game at Boundary Park, admits that the squad have been working hard to improve that side of their game.

"It's frustrating as a football manager, as I'm finding out, when one game you can be absolutely outstanding and then the next not quite hit the same levels," he said.

"I'm a big believer that a lot of it is down to the mentality of the group, so we're working on that all the time with what is a terrific bunch of lads. I'm on at them all the time to keep improving on and off the pitch.

"We look back to the spell of games where we were unbeaten for a long time and strive to find that again. I'm confident that we will do and we have some big games coming up, starting with Oldham.

"It has been a stuttering few weeks inconsistency wise so we need to find that little bit of rhythm again."

Harris will be forced into at least two changes to the starting line-up which began last week's game at Oakwell with George Saville having returned to Wolves and Carlos Edwards sidelined with a hamstring injury.

"George has gone back so Jimmy Abdou and Ben Thompson are vying for that position," he added.

"We will certainly think about freshening the side up by making changes.

"There are options to ponder but I'll be a lot clearer in my mind after all our training ahead of the game is complete."
