Neil Harris urges his side to 'set a marker' at Swindon

Millwall boss looks ahead to crunch clash at the County Ground

Neil Harris believes that Millwall can take a big step towards establishing their promotion credentials at a rejuvenated Swindon Town on Saturday.

The Lions have overcome an indifferent start to the season and slowly, but surely, gelled into a solid and spirited unit that has tasted defeat just once in the last 11 outings.

Swindon have responded to the introduction of Luke Williams as Head Coach by winning four games in a row, and his temporary status was made permanent this week when he signed a five-year deal.

Whatever way you look at it, Saturday's game is crucial to both teams - and Lions boss Chopper is relishing the trip to the County Ground.

"They are a very dangerous side, one of those teams who are certainly on the way up," he said. "They have moved away from any relegation worries they had early in the season to be a real force.

"It's a tight division, and it will be up and down until May 8th. Every point is vital at this stage of the season, but we have belief in our style of play and have been dogged and determined when we have needed to be.

"However it counts for nothing unless we carry it on until the end of the season.

"We can really set a marker down this weekend with a really solid, reliable, resilient Millwall display at Swindon, adding some quality that we possess in the team.

"It will be a cracking game of football and we have to make sure that everything we have done away from home this season we reproduce this week."
