Millwall boss Harris reviews Wigan performance

1 March 2016

"Some of our play was outstanding," Chopper says

Millwall boss Neil Harris praised his players for their performance in Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Wigan Athletic, but did confess to his disappointment that they couldn't quite earn a victory in SE16.

The Lions were dominant from start to finish at The Den, carving out plenty of goalscoring opportunities before and after Sam Morsy's first-half sending off.

But the hosts ultimately couldn't get the better of Latics keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen, who pulled off a string of impressive saves to keep Millwall at bay.

"Even when it was 11 against 11 we were brilliant," Harris said afterwards.

"Some of our play was outstanding and we dominated a top team in the division.

"When they had the man sent off we used the ball really well, got into good areas and created numerous opportunities to score. But it just didn't happen for us in front of goal.

"There is disappointment that we haven't won the game but I'm delighted with the performance from the players.

"We didn't have the composure in front of goal but let's not forget that the boys have been creating chances, scoring goals and winning games of late. It just didn't happen for us tonight.

"This point can be made a really good one if we go out there and get a result on Saturday against Blackpool."
