Millwall boss Harris: 'We feel robbed'

The manager provides his post-match assessment

Millwall boss Neil Harris says his side felt robbed after conceding a late equaliser in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Swindon Town.

Michael Doughty headed home in the fourth minute of stoppage time to secure a share of the spoils at the County Ground, where goals from Lee Gregory and Steve Morison had given The Lions an early 2-0 lead.

The hosts came back into the game in controversial circumstances midway through the second period when Nicky Ajose scored from the spot after Carlos Edwards was somewhat harshly penalised for a foul in the box and Harris couldn't hide his disappointment moments after the final whistle.

"We certainly feel like we've been robbed here today," he said.

"There is no doubt whatsoever that we deserved to win the game.

"The players followed the gameplan perfectly and apart from possible lacking a little bit of quality in the second-half, our performance was very good.

"We started on the front foot, forced them into mistakes and deserved what was then a good lead.

"But the penalty changes the whole complexion of the game. It's a really soft one if I'm being truthful, so we're incredibly frustrated and disappointed because it gave them a way back into the game at a time when we were dealing with everything they threw at us. The foul count tells a story, too, and you can see that some decisions really didn't go our way this afternoon.

"I only really want to focus on the things we can control, though, and ultimately we should have seen the game out. The players are hugely disappointed in the dressing room but there are so many positives to take out of the game."
