The boss reviews his side's win over The Tangerines

Neil Harris was pleased with his side's 'clinical edge' as Millwall recorded a comfortable 3-0 victory over Blackpool at The Den on Saturday afternoon.

Lee Gregory opened the scoring with a simple headed goal - his 21st of the season - before Jed Wallace netted his first for The Lions, curling a free-kick through the wall and into the bottom corner.

Steve Morison completed the victory with a late penalty and Harris was delighted with the performance of his team.

"I thought it was terrific today," he said afterwards.

"But it can always be better and we were not free flowing for 90 minutes. 

"I thought we won the game in the first 25 minutes with the chances we created and the two goals we scored.

"I'm delighted that three of my four attacking players got on the scoresheet, and it could've been more with some of the opportunities we created throughout the game.

"Blackpool are a hard working team and don't often get beat by more than one goal, so for us to score three, keep a clean sheet and dominate for long periods is really pleasing.

"All that was missing against Wigan on Tuesday, which was one of our best performances of the season, was a clinical edge, but we had that today. 

"I can't fault my players because it's been a long week for us. At this stage of the season, three games in a week is tough, especially with limited changes, so credit to the players because they give me everything every day.

"What I'm delighted about is that we are really starting to look like a proper Millwall team. But there is still improvement to be made."
