Millwall boss Harris bemoans 'loss of concentration'

26 March 2016

Lions manager Neil rues dropped points at Bradford City

Chopper could not hide his frustration as he rued: "

Neil Harris was left disappointed as a late goal from Bradford City sub Steven Davies denied Millwall a point - possibly all three - as The Lions eight-game unbeaten run on the road came to an end with a 1-0 defeat at the Coral Windows Stadium.
I was disappointed that we didn't take the point we deserved from the game. "The conditions and the pitch made it difficult to play good football and it looked like it would end 0-0.

"I couldn't bemoan a lack of effort or desire from my players because that was there throughout the game, as it always it. But there was maybe a lack of quality.

"It was an even game between two well-drilled and organised teams but over the course of the 90 minutes we didn't create as many opportunities on goal as we have done previously.
"Their winning goal was frustrating from our point of view because we briefly lost concentration. Aiden (O'Brien) had a similar chance in the first half for us, and then their keeper made a great save from Steve Morison near the end.

"We couldn't ask for a better game, could we?" he added. "

However The Lions boss is pleased that with a quick turnaround of games, his charges have an early chance to put Saturday's disappointment behind them when they host League One leaders Burton Albion in Monday's televised game (7.45pm).

"We competed well and it was a battle but ultimately they took their big chance."  Our focus is now on Monday night when hopefully Lee Gregory and Chris Taylor will be fit to start. 

"I know we will play better against Burton than we did today and we are already looking forward to getting back in action."
