The boss provides his assessment of Sunday's win
Neil Harris praised his Millwall side for the character they showed en route to securing a 3-1 victory over Bradford City in Sunday's Play-Off Semi-Final second leg.
Tony McMahon gave the home side an early lead, converting a penalty after Joe Martin handled, but The Lions hit back with a fine leveller from Lee Gregory just two minutes later. Steve Morison then put Millwall in front with a fantastic header from Shane Ferguson's corner before Martin, who played despite suffering with illness in the past few days, curled home a stunning free-kick just before the interval.
Bradford threw plenty at The Lions' defence during the second-half but they held firm to earn what could prove to be a vital two-goal advantage heading into next Friday's second leg at The Den.
"It was a fantastic display today," Harris said.
"The character the players showed from start to finish was really very impressive, and I'm delighted with their performance out there.
"It was a blow to go behind early on in the game, which helped to build up the atmosphere in the stadium, but our response to that set-back was fantastic.
"The three goals we scored were of outstanding quality and typified all that has been good about our game this season; the combination play for the first, the set-piece for the second and then Joe's free-kick, which he has been threatening to do for a few months now. They were all excellent finishes.
"It's important to remember that this is only half-time in the game and there is a long, long way to go. But the players won't need any reminding of that going into Friday's game at The Den.
"I'm sure there will be a special atmosphere on the night and we will need every bit of support from the fans because it is going to be a very tough game."
