Millwall boss Harris hopes for 'special atmosphere'

The manager previews this weekend's game

Millwall boss Neil Harris is hoping his side can help to generate a 'special atmosphere' inside The Den this Saturday by putting in a strong performance against Sheffield United.

The Lions go into this weekend's fixture fifth in the table - seven points ahead of the 11th-placed Blades, who are amongst the group of clubs with a chance of finishing in the Play-Offs.

There promises to be a big, vocal crowd in SE16 and Harris is hoping his side can repeat the type of performance which saw them win the reverse fixture at Bramall Lane earlier this season.

"Playing Sheffield United at any stage of the season, home or away, is always going to be a big test," the Millwall manager says in his programme notes.

"This game is one I'm really looking forward to seeing my players perform in and I'm sure there will be a terrific atmosphere inside the stadium too.

"Our win at Bramall Lane back in October was a big moment in our season at that point in time, particularly for some of our young players, many of whom hadn't experienced that type of atmosphere in a big ground before. They thoroughly enjoyed it and it set the tone for what lay ahead.

"While we know that this game will be very different, our task is to play with similar intensity, organisation and belief as we did on that afternoon, and we want our performance to help generate a special atmosphere inside The Den.

"Over the last couple of months we have built up some real momentum and we want that to continue."
