Neil Harris praises 'professional performance' as Lions beat Port Vale

Millwall manager delighted as strikers take their chances in a 3-1 success

Lions boss Neil Harris was pleased with his side's professional performance against Port Vale as Millwall ended a run of four successive home defeats to maintain the pressure on the division's top six with a second consecutive League victory.

He said: "I thought we were excellent in the first-half today. The hold up play from my forward players during that period was as good as we have seen from them this season, and on this occasion we took our chances when they came along.

"Our centre halves were dominant and impressive, the only downside was the goal we conceded.

"I said at the start of the season that we'll try to be attacking and score goals, and to have three players in double figures at this stage is a good achievement, but as a team we need to be more consistent with our goalscoring and likewise in terms of keeping clean sheets at the other end.

"At half -time, I said we needed to be professional, manage the game and that's a learning experience for some of the younger players.

"It was an important result for us, catching up on the teams who played yesterday and to build on last week's win at Oldham. We are still very much a work in progress with lots of room for improvement, but we have a good group of players willing to learn and develop which gives us plenty to work with."
