Millwall boss Harris pleased with Bromley win

16 July 2016

The gaffer reviews Saturday's victory at Hayes Lane

Neil Harris was pleased with the two 'excellent' goals Millwall scored during Saturday's pre-season friendly win over Bromley.

Fred Onyedinma and Lee Gregory both finished well following deliveries from David Worrall and Ben Thompson respectively as The Lions battled to a 2-1 victory at Hayes Lane.

It was a thoroughly useful run out for the 22 players who featured, especially so in warm and sticky conditions, and the Millwall boss was delighted with the fitness levels his squad showed.

"First and foremost it looks like there's been no injuries, which is the most important thing," Harris said afterwards.

"Everybody got their designated minutes and that is pleasing. Individually and collectively there was some really good stuff out there but at the same time certain parts were rusty, which is to be expected at this point.

"I'm delighted though because the boys had a double session in training yesterday which was the hardest they've had up to now in pre-season so we knew at times this game would be a bit heavy.

"The two goals we scored were excellent. There was real desire to get on the end of crosses, with good quality inside the area, which is key. 

"All four wide players throughout the game looked impressive, which is after a lot of work we've done with them so I'm pleased with that.

"Overall I think there could have been a lot more goals in the game. Bromley had a couple of chances and we could've had another five or six goals.

"We have done a lot of attacking work in the past few days so now we will focus on the defensive side going into Tuesday against Dartford."
