Millwall boss Harris "frustrated" by Crewe draw

The manager reviews Saturday's game at The Den

Millwall boss Neil Harris admitted that he was "frustrated" with his side's 1-1 draw with Crewe Alexandra on Saturday afternoon.

Brad Inman gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot after 59 minutes but The Lions hit back when Lee Gregory also converted a spot-kick shortly after.

The Millwall striker had a chance to earn all three points with the game's third penalty after 88 minutes but saw his effort strike the post, denying The Lions a fourth straight League victory.

"I am frustrated because when you get a penalty with a couple of minutes to go you really fancy the boy who has scored already to put it in the net," Harris said.

"We're disappointed, definitely, but it could be a good point gained. Once you get into that top six and you play against a team near the foot of the table, the fan base arrive expecting you to roll them over, but it doesn't quite materialise like that.

"If I'm being honest I was more disappointed at half-time that we weren't in the lead with three good chances before the break. With the quality we've got you would expect us to take them.

"But again there was no lack of effort or passion from the boys, it was just about a little bit of quality at the key moments.

"The reaction to get back into the game (after going behind) was good and the calmness of Lee to equalise was really impressive. It's just a shame for him that the second one didn't go in because he loves scoring goals and he feels like he has let the boys down, but that is certainly not the case."
