'Important for new signings to experience playing at The Den early' says Chopper
Neil Harris spoke of his 'delight' that Millwall will kick-off the 2016/17 with a home game against Oldham Athletic on Saturday 6th August.
"I'm delighted that we're at home first," Chopper told millwallfc.co.uk. "It's important that our new signings get a chance to experience playing at The Den straight away.
"August is a very tough month for us with some key fixtures along the way. The first batch of eight games is an exciting challenge and we'll have to wait and see how teams perform early on.
"Naturally everyone will be looking forward to the games against Charlton and the other local fixtures and I'm pleased that the Christmas schedule has been kind to us. It's great that our fans will be able to see some big games at The Den over that festive period.
"It's always exciting when you get the fixture list through, but to be honest, we're not too fussed how they come. As we did last season, we will take each match as it comes, preparing diligently each time which will be key if we are to have another successful campaign."
